WELCOME TO HALFWAY THROUGH THE
A TO Z CHALLENGE 2015:
AGAIN I WILL CONTINUE MY THEME OF
CHOOSING A SONG TITLE THEN
WRITE MY OWN POEM:
M is for MACARTHUR PARK:
RECORDED BY RICHARD HARRIS:
A few years ago I visited LA,
My, it was a wonderful time.
I met up with Arlee Bird whilst there (above)
A great man and oh so very kind.
We went on the subway,
It was a beautiful day,
Me? feeling oh so good.
Twas there we passed MacArthur Park,
The same one I've heard in the song.
I always though it was a ficticious park,
How stupid of me to be wrong.
You see I could never fully understand
The meaning of the words.
Funnily enough I liked the song.
It was really quite absurd.
We had a great day with Arlee,
Memories that will forever remain
I'd love to visit MacArthur Park
If only to leave a cake out in the rain.
