Outgoings

Eric buys a treasure map.
X appears to mark the spot.
Putting on his captain's cap,
Eric buys a luxury yacht.
Navigates the ocean blue.
Destination Dosh or bust!
It costs him lots to pay the crew.
Thirty years before the mast!
Until he digs the casket clear.  
Reads the note inside at last:
Eric spent me getting here.

Late Promise

Released at last from daily drudgery,
Ethelred put up his weary feet.
Time enough, he sighed, to write that book!
Ideas should flock like fervid flies round meat!
Relaxing in the blazing sun one day -
Excited by some opening-sentence play -
Ethelred, unready, passed away.

Xavier consults his lists.

Endless possibilities!

Our poor author flounders.

No. It’s just his confidence that’s low.

Rollercoaster Ride

First thing I tried on today was a smile.
Later, I wore a frown.
Up went my mood while I sang in the rain.
Coming home wet brought me down.
Towards set of sun I was cheerful once more.
Until, as it does, down it went!
At bedtime the prospect of sleep cheered me up.
The absence of same left me spent.
It wasn’t the doldrums that kept me awake.
Or even the fear that my laughter was fake.
No. I worried my tears were not meant.
