Poetry Corner: In Praise Of The Humble Rennie

A Seasonal Ditty.

By Bernie Bell

Rennie tablets Bell

 (Other antacids are available)

I shouldn’t have had that cheesecake

I’d had more than enough to eat.

Now, here I am, lying a-wake

With heart-burn

I just cannot sleep.


I’ve spent some time tossing and turning

I’ve tried breathing steady and slow

But nothing would settle the torment

So, off to the kitchen I go

To munch on an old-faithful – Rennie

And soon the ease started to flow.


The fire goes out

Nice and steady

Soon, soothed is my burning heart

And I’m thinking that maybe the next time

I’ll stick to some plain apple tart!


William Blake said “The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom “ – it doesn’t  – it leads to heartburn!!!
