Demos

  You made your decision that isn’t denied but it’s more democratic to let us decide. We promised I know but just let it go. You and you your kind don’t know your own mind - the rough common herd, you believed every word. But we want to stay and we want our own way. We do we as we please because we’...

I wondered if I might post more on the site so people said Hey - that’s enough for today. so people said Wait - Just take it easy mate. so people said Damn - is that a bloke or spam?

The needle is pointing to empty, the tank is now running on fumes, I am scraping the last of the barrel, and a bleak, barren future now looms. Where once I coul...

Driving out Daisies

If you’re thinking of scrimping and saving to replace your front lawn with block paving ‘cos your parking space then will be double and nature’s just far too much trouble, just think as you rip up the turf what your project will do to the Earth. And if you’re considering decking just think of the li...

Re: Limerick

Banned Listen, I haven’t much time though I swear I’ve committed no crime the powers that be want to persecute me - the outlaw bandido of rhyme. The limerick now is unlawful - branded as hackneyed and awful! but as you can see they didn’t stop me - believe me I got a whole drawer full They placed a...

Re: Limerick

A finicky lady from Cheam
would eat only peaches and cream

Re: Limerick

A popular singer called Midge
now lives in derelict fridge
If you pay him a tenner
he’ll sing you Vienna
and jump off the Waterloo Bridge.

Re: Limerick

The troubadour turning to go
sang a jovial Hey Nonny No.
As he doffed his belled cap

Re: Summers Past – Poems of Remembrance / Regret

A Lawn I ponder the summertime lawn and a jaded conclusion is drawn - it’s empty, it’s green and it’s flat. That’s all I can say about that. OK it’s a nice place to sit, you can soak up the sun for a bit but the moment of pleasure will pass then you get a bit bored with the grass as you’re sufferin...
