POEMS FOR THE PLANET - Changing Places

Changing Places

“A change is 
as good as a rest”
they say-
a one click ticket to paradise
“ohhhh sooo verrry nice”-
a change of scene
a break 
with the routine-

a dreams DO come true trip
going for a snip
of the price-
“a slice of real life”
five star
or four,
forget the wolf
at the door
for one week 
or two
until there are none-

no wolves
no bears
no foxes
no hares
but
meanwhile in paradise
who really cares?

The story of César, an imperial eagle released back into Madrid’s skies

Bex, frustrated with the data driven education system, left her teaching job behind and is still wondering what to do next. Writing poetry helps her to try and make sense of the world, as well as giving her the chance to rant a bit!
