All around the Earth benches in an array of style situation.


I am a bench

no more

no less

a place to sit

discuss

or rest.

I could

if I  would

tell of many tales

things obnoxious

as well as frail

things that could

destroy an empire

as the kiss and the cuddle

and the aged old man

the one whom

never came again.

That is a benches life

be here

as things pass by,

summers 

autumn

winter

spring

here I shall be

till you come again.
