A PA Wednesday Prompt .... "when you are not paying attention"

Pay Attention 

Sit up straight eyes straight ahead
Do not let an idle thought drift into your head
Tear your eyes from the willow tree
bending, beckoning whispery tales of possibility
Things must be learned and must be learned well
Sit up straight, on the wonders floating endlessly do not ever dwell
Shake off Pegasus flying in the air
Banish mermaids floating languid hair
Sit up straight, eyes straight ahead
Learn the lessons taught so you shall be well read


  1. It really reminds me of school. You do become educated but it leaves you creatively stifled. Thank you.

  2. Good poem and I agree with Andy's comment.
