“Rubbish Memory” (poem / poetry)

I jump out of bed in a frenzied panic,

It’s a race against time, how will I manage!?

My heart beats a million times a minute,

Will I get the job done, before they are finished!?!

It sounds like they will be going soon, but…

I’ll get there in the nick of time, with any luck,

I made it, thank goodness, my bad, without question,

I forgot to put the bins out for collection.

This one’s just a bit of fun, touching on a situation that almost all of us have encountered, at least once in our lifetime… the dreaded moment you realise that you didn’t put the bins out, and your neighbour’s bins are already being emptied! …eek!!!

It’s even worse during this bloomin’ lockdown, when every day of the week is Quaransday! 😆🤣😂 We sometimes forget that we still need to do certain things, on certain days!!

I personally think they should make this an Olympic event, as you really get to see the peak athleticism of someone in these circumstances! 😆🤣 Competitors could be awarded a point for each second left over from the allocated time, plus get bonus points for artistic flair, or clinical execution.

Or maybe I’ve just got way too creative on how to pass the time! However, I do wonder what Homelympic events, you would like to see given the recognition they deserve?

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
