Poem for today by Pete Jardin



Built in a shed

Using a mix of old and new

Silly and sensible

Quality and tat


Conceived as a joke

Then made solid

Through 3D modelling

And low quality power tools


Half a set of guitar strings

Fence post for a neck

Battery and speaker

Amplified mayhem


As the slide rides up to the twelfth

And the glassy notes fill the air

I’m reassured

This was the right thing to do


Poems for Earthlings Copyright 2020 - by Pete Jardine
