The Mallet

By Scott Bailey © 2018

The mallet
Ancient tool
Held by many hands
Down through the ages
Hands of skill and experience
Worn and hardened
By labour and care
Resigned to
Tent pegs and vampires

    An ancient tool … yes! Made me think of the pyramids! Enjoyed your poem! 🙂 Didn’t mind the prompt word too much. It was okay.
