Epilogue – Part 4

The Fourth installment of Joan Stansbury’s poem, inspired by a visit to Macbeth.






(taking down a whistle from a hook in the wall)


Fit and lean, they worked well as a team.

Planned and executed each exercise

with care and precision. Breathing well controlled.

Gestures economical. Disciplined.

None of that hugging, showing off nonsense,

although they pleased the crowd well enough.

Concentration excellent. Great performance.


Memo to self: try five-a-side next term!
