Laid out in rows,
spiralling in towards the centre
In order and orderly
spoons, chillies, forks, chillies, knives and chillies
A pattern we do see
Not quite as neat
but orderly just the same
thousands stand in line each day
to view the remains of Ho Chi Minh
who kept order in his land until his death
well- respected and well-loved.
A competition number
gives an order as it crosses the line
Perhaps a first, a second or third
to number 58, please its mine.
In the animal kingdom
biologically speaking an order of animals is given when classifying
The order dinosaur differs just that bit from the coelusrosauria although
the kingdom and the Phylum are the same.
When operating technical machinery
It helps to know in what order to hit the buttons, pull the stops and work the pedals.
Thank god I thought
It is not me that has to fly this jumbo jet.
Quiet order. Peace prevails.
The books are in order and easily found
The desks are ordered
and those that sit and read are also well ordered obeying the order
For those not so easily controlled
The tourist police are tough.
With truncheons raised they will react
Lack of order will not be tolerated
So obey orders, stay on paths
Take no relics from the site
And you will find you are fairly safe.
And in a well ordered world
Some have to live in chaos
but few perhaps are as cluttered
As Margaret Olley,
Australian artist well known for her art and her total disorder.
