We are loaded with Kenton stuff
Benches, chairs, tools and more
Wondering if we’ve packed in enough
The mixed contents of the junk drawer
On top of the car is our canoe
Yay for paddling 2022
This was a bit of found poetry – found, that is, in a text from my dad as they were driving back from being in Kenton-on-Sea, the small town in the Eastern Cape of South Africa where my grandparents lived.
I noted his end rhyme and had to tweak and add and see where the rest of the lines were hiding.
