four walkers

golden sun sets on a country track
four walkers heading back from the pub
while Gloucester wheat retains pure fire
sweat the only drink they’ll get this eve

while we’re at it what distinction nears
the essence of perspiration and in tears?
both salty, both with sting, both from us
displayed or alone, in sympathy and indifference

it makes all the difference so
golden sun sets on a country track
four walkers sweating jovially back
but thanks for your concern
