Post Haste

by RebShang

I found a pile of hand-written letters that I had forgotten to mail. The date on them is 10 November 2012. That is almost a year ago. Here is my reaction in poem-form.

Atop the shelf lie letters of Yesterday –
Enveloped in dust, unsent from delay.
How can this be, I say
Perplexed, For such work of pen,
The artistry of men,
Must be revered!

Haste, haste! Post haste
With stamps that taste
Of glue and paste –
Bitter to swallow such
Negligence, there is much
to be persevered!
