Dear Milkman . . . [explored]

I thought that when two pints arrived yesterday

that one

was for the day before, that`s yesterday`s yesterday

but it was for the next day - that`s today

you`d brought a pint for today -

that`s the day before yesterday,

so I am one pint short.



you did remember to bring the extra one

I asked for last week this time which

I didn`t pay for

because I thought you would forget,

like you always forget to shut the gate.

So the one you did bring equals the other one

that you didn`t brin g the other day,

that`s not yesterday but the day before.


Will you be coming for payment tomorrow,

or later today ?

Not last week, or the week before but the week

before that you didn`t come.

I know this because the gate was shut.

But on the next week, that`s the week before last,

you collected the week before lasts and

the week before the week before lasts together.

Well we still have a milkman who delivers daily milk to our house - and a gate at the end of the garden. . .:-) "Happy Fence Friday everyone" !!
