Dear Milkman . . . [explored]
I thought that when two pints arrived yesterday
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" !!
