Clearing cobwebs

by Jenny Erlanger


Mum said I shouldn’t worry

that I didn’t need the doc,

that I’d clear away the cobwebs

with a walk around the block


So I went and fetched my sneakers

and I did what I was told.

I grabbed my woollen beanie

and I stepped out in the cold.


The walk was quite refreshing.

quite a joy, I’d have to say

but it didn’t help at all

to make the cobwebs go away.


It might have been less trouble

if I’d gone into my room

and poked into the corners

of my ceiling with a broom.
