Peter, like Clarissa I can't hear them, my laptop has stopped dealing in sound, but by God the idea of Kare Bush and a Mixed Grill is making me salivate. To paraphrase John Clays "more please". Must go and make myself some toasted cheese,(with Branston Pickle of course), oh Kate, the appetite you inspire in a man.

Cheers Dave. Nice to see you there. The better photos are used with kind permission of official photographer Bernie O'Brien.
Yeah, i was a bit nervous about this one but ended up really enjoying it. Mcr Irish Festival is one of the biggest in the world. It meant a lot to me (would have loved my mum and dad to be able to be there) and there were at least 500 people rammed into the magnificent Great Hall of Manchester Town Hall - couple of hundred stood at the back. Despite pacing round nervously for a couple of hours beforehand, muttering my 2 poems to myself, I managed to leave the longest 5 seconds of my life between two lines but managed to recover - not sure if anyone noticed besides my wife!!
Can I just point out that I took no part in the later debauchery to which Mr Morgan refers. I neither singed nor signed any part of Dave's anatomy! I adjourned to the Contact Theatre to mingle following the Apples and Snakes event with Polarbear et al.

Great reflection of what happened that night in Paris. I will never understand why those two had to die-because of the pursuit of the paparazzi. They chased them every place they went. The poem says volume and there is some mystery behind as well. Thank you for the sad but truth-spoken poetry.

Hello to You!
Sad life for a young man. He must of been ill minded for some reason. I guess he deserved to die, although it is not up to me to judge.
McVeigh was born in Lockport, New York, and raised in nearby Pendleton, New York. He was the middle child of three, and the only male child. He earned his high school diploma from Starpoint Central High School. His parents, Mildred Noreen ("Mickey") Hill and William McVeigh, divorced when he was 10. His parents were of Irish and German origin. McVeigh was known throughout his life as a loner; his only known affiliations were voter registration with the Republican Party when he lived in New York, and a membership in the National Rifle Association while in the military.

Hello Dear Belinda
Thought provoking poem; So many issues just with one word” INDEPENDENT" Well this word is a broad spectrum word to be used. Some like independence and some do no not!
I believe it is a matter of choice which direction an individual takes. Life in general requires being INDEPENDENCE...Again; I can go on and on this one… We had to teach independence our clients who lost the privilege due illness or accidents.

Hello Dear Clarissa
This is mainly for fun and not serious looking for someone. I know what you trying to tell in your response. I have tendency to write serious poems. I’ve tried a little humour in this one. Although when I read it still sounds serious...Smile.
Many thanks for the comment!

HI Malcom, this is a cool poem. You know, when 911 happened, I was at home watching it, before I went to work. Then I watched the economy start to crumble.I saw the videos of Mr Moore, Im like you, I dont know about him and Im sure I dont agree with all in the film.Im all so sure I dont agree with all the "war". From my view we have become terrorists, by engageing in this war, and not declairing it in the senate, per the constitution. The prision camps are an abomination, with parts of the bill of rights, suspended, it makes for no justice. I have been active in the political arena, and found that nothing can/will get done. I have written my congress and others, to get no answer, I have signed petition after pettition, to have nothing change. as I have stated before Im a libertairian, that has infiltrated the republican party. I can tell you its one bunch of bull shit after another. If I owned the media, or if I was a lobbiest, then I would be given time as I would be paying my elected officials to listen to me. However they already get a fine wage for doing nothing. I believe we are in need of a march on Washington, a possible revolution is around the corner.They tell us McCain is winner of republican party and all delegates, however we have flooded the party, they have no clue just how many are NON McCain, and are pro Libertairian.I dont know what will happen.I know the media lies.I know we will have to go public at some point, that we have taken over the republican party.Great poem man!!! Keep writting, at some point I may not be able to say anything, just to save my family.I hate to think of my country in that way, but I have no trust for it/them.Take care Malcom, remember your government is my government.Not much difference in the 2.

Thank you very much David, Mel and Clarissa for your comments. You're all quite right about the character and a mimi story. I sat down for quite some time and thought about the person that influenced this poem. It's like they became part of me, and I was feeling there pain, emotion.
It can be a lonely existence in this world sometimes eh?
Sun 23rd Mar 2008 05:45
Hi Belinda, this is very nice, I could see it as if its a mini movie. How those words ring in my head and heart. take care
Sun 23rd Mar 2008 05:43
Nice poem, I think if you stop looking you find.Thats what has kinda worked for me.We are not perfect and they wont be either.They can be found any place, normal places you go day to day. Bars are wrong place and I could name others but then Id get called names by some, so I wont say any other wrong places.Friends can find them at times for you. Best is person you can talk to, and are friends with, they make a good life partner. wonderful poem!
Sun 23rd Mar 2008 05:38
Im sure they are great! I cant get them to work on my PC, cant hear the 2 of them but can hear others.I always liked mixed grill, to read, so Im sure you do it well.As for being in love with kate Bush, cant hear it or understand it, but then, its the PC thing.

This is such a nice poem, its so song like. I hope you are well and that you have a nice Easter. take care Clarissa

Welcome to WOL. - It is a pleasure meeting you.
I have taken the opportunity to read your poems.
All your poems are nicely written. Loved the BNP...You are certainly not afraid to speak your mind. Good for you. I believe that we all belong to this Earth it does not matter where we are from. It is time to stop the discrimination based on race and colour of the skin.
Sun 23rd Mar 2008 02:17
Well the search at times my takes longer.
Never give up!!
I thought of this as a partial reality in todays world. Talked to a lot of woman and learned that finding the right person it is not an easy task this days. That is why I used this in my poem.
It suppose to be a little humorous write.

really good point Clarissa! it makes sense in a crazy way, too put that mad music over all the killing. the killing was stupid in the first place. to underline it with this just extends the lunacy. it is all part of the same self re inforcing club. like jinkies hangin out only with junkies. it all seems fine if you share the same delusion.

Hi Peter, very nice poem! Can you imagin being God? Having to hear all at the same time billions of people asking things? I cant, would not want the job.You cant test God. You either have faith, or you dont. Church is not required.Answers come when God can answer and you can hear.Dont you know the answers at times, to the questions you ask?I remember we talked about this before, and you never said what you believe.Blind faith is at best difficult.I have had answers, as I told you. I have seen things, that some would say was of heaven. I dont know, others would say I was crazy, but I know what I saw, and how it made me feel. To not be on drugs or drunk and have visions...well I dont know. Loved the poem. Happy Easter..Psss its a pagan holiday, the way most all churches do it.

A lovely poem Peter. I liked the nursey rhyme influence, it works. A dark poem, but with a glimmer of optimism at the end.

I have to say I was asked to move aside so that one of those photos could be taken, how's that for a brush with fame. TW was excellent as ever, and as far as I remember so was the Guinness and the Janesons. The evening only marred by some nouveau riche notions of topping it with flaming sambuccas in the Tiger Lounge which almost led to conflagration, immolation and singed testicles.

I enjoyed reading this poem, it has spunk! We females need that spunk, to deal with some men and people in general. Im a peacful person for most all events. But I have teeth and a baseball Bat, and a cross bow, and I can dial 911 very fast, Oh yeah and I can throw well!!! haha i love the poem!

I really like this poem. I think most people are a bit mad, in one way or another.Some of the most sane, have been crazy at times. I know for some its a chemical imbalance. For others its a bad day/week/month/year.I know I have totally lost it at times,no imbalance, I guess I can blame hormones, mine were out of whack for years and IM sure some thought I was really crazy. Ha at times I think Im crazy, but its just life, the ups and downs of it all. My fav movie line "Life is like a roller coaster"I try very hard to be and stay positive, for self and others. Hope your well, TC Clarissa

Thank you Robert.
The glimpses were moments when he would be working on a bike he was putting together for me from scrap parts that we had collected and he would introduce me to a knowledge of engineering (e.g. the nature of metal fatigue in aircraft and unexpected failures resulting from it) that I couldn't imagine where or how he had acquired it. Other times he would make an incubator for his chicken and turkey eggs from a light bulb, some recovered glass from an old shed and a thermometer. He never really communicated though.
