Park Musing

And in the park I see young men

And toddlers (under 5s

not an expert don’t @ me)

Anyway they’re running free

One grey head – a man

The older parent I would be

If …


All these men on a Tuesday

in the playground gathering

Just like women do

And swapping news

But without all the accoutrements of young parenthood

 – no buggies no bags – 

Is that because they don’t think it through?

Or because they have pockets?
