YESTERDAY BY Andrew Illsley

Your memory paints a picture

You clearly understand

 

The fine art of retouching

Requires a steady hand

 

There’s craft in your draughtsmanship

The past is putty in your hands

 

And though tomorrow scares your scheming wits to bits

You’ve got yesterday all planned
