    Selected Poem
TRAPPED
The day was hot and clammy
My mouth was rather dry
In fact, I felt so thirsty
As time crawled slowly by

Then, when my work was over
I craved an ice cold beer
An amber coloured foaming glass
Thank God the pub was near

I staggered through the doorway
And stood before the bar
I paid the buxom barmaid
And sat down with my jar

I'd barely found my corner
And managed to sit down
When someone grabbed my shoulder
And joined me with a frown

No talk of girls or cricket
No news of football score
Alas, I'd been accosted
And waylaid by a bore

He droned for hours and hours
About his awful life
I yearned to find my freedom
And run home to the wife

He covered me in spittle
And gaunt and beady eye
Until my head was bursting
I really thought I'd die

At last, in inspiration
I said " Hey it's your round"
In One point seven seconds
He was nowhere to be found

I thanked God for his mercy
And drank my pint in peace
Then celebrated with a scotch
And toasted my release

- Thomas Vaughan
