Holding Doors

Such a dumb custom

By liellPublished about a year ago 1 min read

I amble on in peace, but up on yonder shore

Stands a jerk with petty smile, holding open door

Now I feel the guilt to speed

And quicken for his need

When I'd rather just walk slowly, than indulge his needless chore

About the Creator


Admirer of medieval history and mythology, as well as science fiction and surreal dream-like narratives. I am a lover of onion and cheese, rain and river, and fine cloudy days, when the green rises up to meet the swirling grey.
