The Man From Locksley – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Green – VJs Weekly Challenge





The Man From Locksley

Marians made to work inside
while sheriffs roam in Armani
through forests of towers
shards and spires,
but where is the one from Locksley?
Perchance his quiver is full,
distracted, he sates elsewhere,
while the city in torpor despairs
unrequited the Lincoln green.

    When legends become metaphors
    PV’s poetry came alive
    Anger and sadness the undercurrent
    Contemporary survival skills
    this poet has plenty.
    IMHO – my humble take. Regards. Jay
