NOT LONG NOW

by Anton Wills-Eve


1st of three poetry prompts based on famous quotes, this inspired by my wife. In September 1914 at the start of WW1 10,000,000  Britons said ” It will be over by Christmas”. Here goes.

 

 

NOT LONG NOW

The journey had been long and hot

Both their animals could barely trot,

He smiled, saying to his pretty wife,

Who was also carrying another life

For she was pregnant too, poor lass, 

“Mary! It will be over by Christmas”
