Digging Ditches by Mary Bone

Digging Ditches

I’m in the trenches
digging ditches..
Mud’s in my eyes,
as I battle flies.
Mosquitos abound,
Gnats surround.
Crime doesn’t pay.
You pay when you play.

I have been writing since the age of twelve and have had two books of poetry published. My poems have appeared in journals, magazines, newspapers and online blogs. The most recent poetry acceptances are posted at Poetry Pacific, Literary Yard, Afflatus Magazine and my poem, ”Other Warriors” will appear in the July/August issue of Oklahoma Today Magazine. I also like to draw and paint in my spare time.
