Okay, so today is National Poetry Day. Now, I have published several of my poems - some sensible, some silly - on this blog, but none of them are particularly heroic. This is a problem since this year's theme is "Heroes and Heroines".
That being so, who better as the subject for today's poem than the doctor who always makes me feel better? Enjoy!
(PS - this is one of my sillier poems. Don't go expecting a prize-winning epic)
For Them All ... but especially Blake’s 7 and you know Who
by Jan Jones
Everyone needs to suspend disbelief
How else do children grow?
Everyone needs a fantasy land
A heroic band
How else can we create bricks out of sand?
How else make bread out of dough?
Everyone needs a family time
That half-hour in front of the box
Everyone needs to escape for a while
Exchanging a smile
Steal the enemy's phial
Everyone needs to be part of the guile
Ignoring the ticking of clocks.
