The Shrew Canoe | A Poem by Paul Tristram

It was hidden
in some foliage
at the left hand side
of their escape tunnel.
It had so far
been kept
unemployed.
Yet,
Like an unfired gun.
A tucked away £10 note.
A rarely spoken to
long distance friend.
The three 9’s
at the end
of a telephone line.
The best thing
about a
‘Shrew Canoe’
is simply
knowing
that it is there.
