Rebels

Life's a drag
we long for the old days
when no one questioned
our need to light up
regardless
of place
our puckered lips
testament to habits
that die hard
caught on an illicit  camera
in the museum of fashionistas
marble halls
we are  rebels
in our flat wool caps and
camel overcoats
our pooch left outside in the rain

cocks his leg against the 'no dogs sign'.

Life has too many 'do not' signs....in my opinion.....do go and see the other poets  at The Mag

  1. The dog--great touch.
    She certainly isn't the sort to carry a little poopsie-pie and coo at it.

  10. Love your non-judgmental take on The Mag.

    Life definitely does have too many 'do not' signs. We are becoming stifled by rules and regulations, not realising our freedom is slowly being strangled to death...
