it is
with a young author
all of 11 years old
on my morning radio

she bubbling away
enthusiastic is she
about writing
and reading too

(World Book Day
has passed virtually)

A tad later
another is on
she somewhat
longer in the game

Perfect day
is her first
choice of music

a song sure
to bring cheer
to humanity

surely not
what with us all being
held to ransom
by a virus

one that has exposed
the planet’s cracks
for all to gasp at
and then to act on

A Perfect day

Two authors and a Lou Reed song on Michelle Constant’s show get this going, on South Africa’s Lockdown Day 31.
