NaPoWriMo - 4th poem...sort of

April 4th

Today's prompt from NaPoWriMo was writing a poem with the title of one of Iain Banks' spaceships from his science fiction books.  However, I heard yesterday the sad news that Iain is extremely ill and battling cancer.  The full story is on his website http://www.iain-banks.net/.  I didn't feel I could write a poem under these circumstances but offer the following using a title from the list suggested:


Unfortunate Conflict of Interest

The Quarry could be his last book
for a conflict of interest is a sad page for a writer,
but with humour he makes his plans
explains to his fans
and signs off for now.

*******

Love and prayers, Iain
