After Sonnet 91: Life Lessons #poetry

Seems as apt today as ever….

Some glory in their birth, some in their skill

Some enjoy a pint, some prefer a pill

Some are shallow, followers of fashion,

Some see their art as the epitome of passion.

Some pay a fortune to retain their youth

Some hold the common touch, some just stand aloof.

But wherever you stand on this spectrum

Finding joy remains a conundrum.  

The secret is not found in one’s reputation

Nor in some chemical hallucination.

The simple truth is clear, as was ever thus

Always say you’re sorry and never make a fuss.

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published four books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars, Salisbury Square and Buster & Moo. In addition I have published two anthologies of short stories, Life, in a Grain of Sand and Life in a Flash. More will appear soon, including a memoir of my mother's last years. I will try and continue to blog regularly at geofflepard.com about whatever takes my fancy. I hope it does yours too. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.
