A Madeiran thought.
I just had a “brainwave” while on holiday relaxing
Nothing too strenuous though, nothing too taxing
Sitting here taking in the sights enjoying my steak on the stone
I thought why not write a few lines – as it’s something to which your prone
Sitting here 10 floors up watching the world go by
Not a breeze, not a cloud but plenty of blue sky
Down on the Marina a cruise ship is about to dock
All on board eagerly waiting to disembark and take stock
Eager beavers you might say land “lubbers” one and all
Leaving their sea legs in their cabins hoping they can recall –
How to walk on dry land after many days at sea
Not a holiday I’d wish to take I’d much rather be –
Sitting off people watching making decisions on my own
And maybe it would inspire me to attempt to write a poem.
