Up at the Crack of Dawn!


Loos 2015This morning I’ve heaved my protesting body out of a comfortable warm bed at silly-o’clock for the first time this year. This is the approximately 586th morning I’ve wandered down the road to organize a car boot sale since 1992. My chariot (Mitzi with three loos on a trailer) awaits, along with a queue of sellers who have uncomfortable mattresses…

A quarter past five
My alarm shouts a warning!
“Get Up, Get Up!
It’s a Saturday morning!

Get down the road,
Open the gate,
They’ll be people waiting,
Don’t you be late!”

My hand blundered about,
There was a loud knock,
I’ll look at the boot sale,
For a new alarm clock!

I wish you all a great weekend. If you’re visiting a bootsale near Baldock, please be gentle on the tired old man on the gate!
