What On Earth

I wouldn’t do it if I were fit

And I’m not fit these days

I take my hat off to them

But still I am amazed

To queue for hours overnight

A moment in the Hall

It’s mesmerising so it is

The relentless footfall


Yes ‘I was there’ is in it

Reverence is in it too

Being part of history

In societal glue

And those now in it don’t complain

It is worth the while

Worth the wait of endless hours

Unending defile


Those who cannot comprehend

May write it off as nonsense

But that is now to go too far

It doesn’t fit in your sense

There are things in life beyond our ken

Beyond our comprehending

Sometimes we know not what or why

The meaning has no ending
