Got to write a poem
I've not done one for a while.
I'll try to keep lighthearted
just to help you all to smile.

To talk about some nonsense,
something funny or just fun,
it's only when it's finished
I will know what I have done.

Now here's a little story
that I heard the other day
about a man who had no money
and he couldn't pay his way.

He found himself a copper,
not the type that you can spend,
then he told him he had murdered
his one and only friend.

They locked him up quite quicky
as they tried to check his tale
but they gave him food and water
while he waited in the jail.

When they found he had been lying
just to get a bed and food
they really wasn't nice to him,
and in fact were very rude.

The charged him with obstruction
of the police and he was found
to be guilty by the magistrate,
he did not muck around.

He sentenced him to six months
in a prison he must stay,
where he had a bed to sleep on
and three good meals a day.

So if ever you're in trouble
and cannot pay your way
just find a friendly copper
to find you a place to stay.

I hope you liked my story
now my poetry is done,
it's my way to spend a little time
and have a bit of fun!

The moment created this second, is a moment that's going to last.
It lives the full spectrum of time, the future, the present and past.
