House of the Rising Sun

House of the Rising Sun

That’s all for this week, see you
next week.

That’s how he always signs off,
good ol’boy Brian Matthew,
radio DJ extraordinaire.
His unmistakable tones
celebrating the music of my era,
sunrise on Saturdays since time began.
Sounds of the Sixties and before that
in the glorious decade itself
never-to -be-forgotten Saturday Club.
The music will always live on:
Beatles, Rolling Stones, Kinks, Animals etc.
But what of Brian… and me?

That’s all for this life, see you
in Strawberry Fields Forever.


PS: If this is the end of StaPoWriMo2016, as Robbie has hinted,
I’d like to thank her and Martin for such thought-provoking prompts.
Breakfast will not be the same!

Day 30

The Last…?:   Well, here we are at the end of another 30-day poetic marathon! (Methinks Martin doesn’t know there are 31 days in October. Will there be a final prompt tomorrow? [RMB])

Think of something you couldn’t possibly do without. Now, consider having to face up to savouring it one more time before it vanishes forever.

The last book? The last cake? The last elephant?

Write on!
