Poetry by Jambo Stewart

 

Reservation for two

Me and you

Wine into glasses

Skipping classes

Without a clue

 

Reservation for three

Us and he

Mild-mannered

Devilishly cute

On a learning spree

 

Reservation for four

Still want more?

Scuffles over dinner

And breakfast

What a chore

 

Reservation for five

Still alive

Try’na keep one

From feeling left out

Home is a dive

 

Reservation for six

An equal mix

Girls, boys

A whole load of toys

The clock ticks

 

Reservation for seven

Oh heaven

Never a table fit for us

Breathe

And count to eleven

 

Reservation for eight

An expensive date

Spillages and tantrums

Two old enough

To debate

 

Reservation for twelve

A knife by its helve

Four more

Fresh minds

For which, to delve

 

Reservation for two

Again, me and you

Older now

Empty nests

We made it through

 

Reservation for one

Now that you’re done

This wine

I drink alone

Without you, it’s no fun.
