Tipped

Inspired by an upside-down painting in Prado Lounge Café Bar (see image – artist unknown).

Upside-down, a dish mop hangs
Throttled, death-like by longing pangs.

Waitress, I ask, how can this be?
A weary waiter, he wanted free.

The tips he sought, they could not be!

We tipped him up, and shook him
down.
Hence, this portrait wears his frown.

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
