simple rhyme

Spectacles (A One Minute Rhyme)

these glasses do not favour me
you couldn’t say they’re cool
they’re too big for my little head
and make me look a tool

but if I didn’t wear them
I couldn’t read or write
so I guess that I’m stuck with them
though I look a proper sight

even with them on my face
I bump my head a lot
so I really must be careful
it’s the only head I’ve got

I’ll live with the fact they’re rather sad
and just a fashion folly
they don’t make me look like Richard Gere
just a grey haired Buddy Holly

S-Bahn

counting each and every tree
that seems to look right back at me
from the train that speeds
right through the green and grey
she sits beside me with a smile
that shortens all the travelled miles
and promises only sunshine
through the day
