Total Alienation

All day all night the townsfolk Whine

Their humptyhillhead never ends

The central apple tree is mine

All day all night the townsfolk whine

A bicycle pump a valentine

A mask for each as he pretends

All day all night the townsfolk Whine

Their humptyhillhead never ends

Welcome back to Francis’ daily triolet prompt. ‘Humptyhillhead’ (baby talk) is a word I’ve mooched from James Joyce’s ‘Finnegan’s Wake’. ~
