Broom by Peter Yates

I have a new broom
to sweep clean
the detritus of my life.
I’ll collect it all in neat little piles


Lost Direction.
Broken Promises.
Divided Loyalties.
Shattered Dreams.

And being part of that bold new breed
of eco-warriors
I will, of course, recycle it
recycle it all
back into my life again.

Peter Yates is a playwright who has his own Theatre Company Random Cactus. He works with various charities and is a Theatre Critic at London Theatre 1.
