I really hate change

I really hate change, unless it is me
It's my choice to be who I want to be
But with others I firmly disagree
I really must end this verse with an 'e'

I am joking of course but we should all
Accept changes even they do appall
You wouldn't think that I would have the gall
To finish verse without a rhyme at the end!

Forgive me I like to have just one joke
For I've always been that sort of bloke
Forever laughing as I write each stroke
As though my finger does give you a poke

Enough of the silly childish banter
You'll think of me as a silly ranter
I'll soon be speeding off at a canter
Christmas shopping calls so might meet Santa!

  1. I believe you! You had me laughing. My poem started with hating change but it repented and went in a different direction.

  2. I know, Robin. Changes suck. I am glad Christmas shopping may divert you. Your poem had me smiling.

  9. I'm with you: I want to choose my own change, not have it chosen for me.
