Listen

It's Not the Same ~ Philip Brent Harris

It’s Not the Same ~ Philip Brent Harris

Simple words

Can mean

Or modify

So much more

Than we imagine

Shall I explain?

Just one word

Only please,

Don’t complain

It’s my view

Agree or not

Encourage me

Play the snot

All the same

To me

So, I appeal

Everyone

Gather near

Listen

See if you can

Guess

My single word

 

Will it

Keep you out

Now until

Forever

Unwelcoming

Or come sit

Will you pass?

Or join

One to another

May make you

Cross, Steal

Your freedom

Steel your days

Side by side

Clanging doors

But are you sure?

 

Soap, salad,

Chocolate, sand

Sorted to choose

Snack

Belled

In demand

For sports

Singles

Mingles

Homonymic

Name a city

Dance, hold tight

You’ve got it

Right

 

Raise a glass

Or six

Give a cheer

Live far away

From here

Drunk and

Best be phoning

Or you may be

Meeting Tennyson

No moaning

When you

Have crossed

The BAR
