A farewell hay(na)ku

 
After exactly two
years as
a
battery
hen, I
have decided to

let the Pelican
find a
home
on
the free
range. Occasionally I

might
go &
collect her eggs.

No!

Oh no! Why?

I'm always beyond fashionably late. Oh well, I did enjoy reading what is already here, especially the tribute poems. Good luck.

I agree: but...but...

although I am looking for hope in those "eggs"...?

Geof Huth said...

Good luck, Mark. We do what we must. And two years is a good run!

Geof, I had my Black, for Geof Huth, in the thankyou post below, but possibly because of the size of the post it lost its borders which rendered it somewhat meaningless, though perhaps more expansive. But I was thinking of you.

I am a sloppy visitor, sorry, but I liked the idea of having you here,

times

Mark, I only came across the farewell this morning. Many thanks for the poem as well. The jazz keeps on, I have no doubt. Best for your next instalment of presence. JJ
