Silly Poem – Mind



I never mind them.

Not much.

And I don’t mind not minding them.

Not at all.

Why then, do they mind me not minding them?

That, I mind!


And is that wrong?

No, not to my mind.


As the only mind, to me, that I mind minding,

is my mind.


So, please – if you don’t mind, mind you –  please, just please

don’t mind me!

Inspired by a reading of an extract from ‘Fingersmith’ by Sarah Walters, as shared by a member of the Colchester Scribblers Meetup group.


But, please mind just enough to read and comment on just a few more posts of mindless content:

PJ’s Perky Jaunt: A Comedy Club Review



Published by The Silly-Savvy Salopian

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.
