The Poetry of Brian Langley


Breakfast Sitting Down


I eat my breakfast sitting down
whenever I am home in town.
But at the beach, it's much more fun,
eating breakfast on the run

For there's no time to linger there
and sit around in padded chair.
The fish wont wait, its up and go.
Time to hurry, can't be slow.

Must be there before the sun,
there's room enough for everyone.
Side by side along the sand
with rods a rampant we all stand
