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!!!
