42 Day Fifteen, Why.

Jane Dougherty has come up with a theme for May . It is 42, now Jane describes it thus: “42 after Douglas Adams’ answer to the question of life, the universe and everything. The form is like the Cherita in its structure with a bit of added interest. The first line/stanza asks a question or makes a statement that begs a question, the second stanza/two lines sets the scene or the background, the last stanza/three lines answers the question or resolves it in some way.

Why must we grow up

Our innocence to loose

As our paths we choose

All good things come to an end

Childhood is but temporary my friend.

It is a bitter cup.

A quiet woman

She displayed an inner pride

Her triumphs she’d hide

Knowing her place as pride can

Took the crown into her hand.

Wake up Little Suzie.

This is how Suzie loved the cinema, quite clean and empty. No mess, no smells, no people. She’d hoovered and removed the leftovers and unmentionables! She settled in the comfy leather seat put her feet up and closed her eyes. It was better than going home no one here to hit her.
