MULTIPLY Poetry Posse Week 41 - Routine

Wheat field along the River Aare, Solothurn

Up in the morning go to the shower
clean your teeth and it takes an hour
Eat the breakfast bread and jam
Drink the coffee and the door will slam
In the car and off to work
The daily routine of an export clerk

Then one day you have got to old
Your life no longer feels controlled
So up in the morning and go to the shower
clean the teeth taking more than an hour
Eating breakfast with coffee to drink
Just take your time at the kitchen sink

Clean the home in your very own time
No rush or stress, it is not a crime
You are now retired, you are not a machine
Do what you want, but keep a routine
Every morning doing the same
But life has now become a game

There is no have to, or must, it’s a choice
You only listen to your very own voice
Humans are organised, that is a fact
So keep the pattern to stay compact
We will have routine until all is passed
We are nicely organised, until the last
