Times of yore

entry picture

Inspired by 'Jason's wonderful poem  "Birdsong".

Which I was reading whilst the news was on the background reporting on 'domestic abuse' cases rising., as a result of COVID 19 quarantine’s rules.

 

Times Of Yore

 

Unison sings in this birdsong poem

to remind us of 'times of yore'

when the only chatter coming down the line

was the repetition of that old jackdaw.

Walking towards the light

What a waste. What a shame.
Lost and gone before you came.
The spot light dims no shadow cast
behind illumed face or darkened arse.

The curtain falls, the audience leave
disappointed and deceived
Your name in lights bulbs all blown
Dark forever. Not a fate condoned  

Your loss because another rises
fame assured, because of your tantalizes
Walking casts a ...

Ramp it up ramp it up, the UK’s ramping up

Now it’s all about the Covid checkout

Come on, ramp it up!

It’s the latest Buzz-word used so extensively

at every opportune moment, daily on TV.

Ramping it up, that’s what we're doing...

 

If you can believe, half of what the PM’s saying

Who could disagree?

Following on from my previous blog*  there is more I'd like to say

when it comes to Global culls there must be a better way.

Many theorize that ‘Covid virus’ is part of a deadly plan

reducing the population, killing women, children, man.

Well there is a flaw in this plan if you think this through

whilst we’re locked in quarantine, we know what many wil...

Baby Boom

entry picture

The latest scientific research seems to point to the fact that if your parents did not have any children you are 99% likely to not have any either.

 

In nine months time a baby boom ( I know its a tautology )

will be resounding across the world

During all of this captivity, much sexual action will unfurl

Boys and girls will be popping up like there is no tomorrow

Bringing lots of...

i have to say I find it strange

when folk get angry, become estranged

to see the death toil daily rise

Another victim

.

Tearing though the sinues in my skull

sucking all the air from my lungs

Gasping for breath.

I could feel my very soul departing with each exhalation

Drowning in a vacuum of hopeless turbulence and despair.

 

As I stepped out upon heavens stair.

 

Nothing...  Nothing now of me remained

 

Except, engraved upon felsic intrusive igneous granet

Ovid on the Covid

 

In Augustus times Ovid wrote

many a poem about sore throats

He was truly inspirationally to a lad like me

I searched the library for this cononical poet

For yes he was one, if you did’nt know it.

 

I feel like Ovid myself now... banished in exhile

because of my ‘carmen et error’.

 

How I enjoy his elegiac meter and erotic themes.

My hands reach out to touch you

To break a binding spell

That grips you oh! So tightly

How far my friend you've fell

 

So insidious and commanding, compelling you to obey

Implanting words inside your mind, the things you're meant to say.  

Thinking these thoughts are yours… because this is how you think

Good morning Doctor, I have a nasty cough

Can you sign this chit, so I don’t get laid off.

How long have you it had it, I’m duty-bound to ask

and, since you are here, take off that silly mask.

 

I am just being responsible as we all should do

The music saddens her heart, her eyes well tears of sorrow

that leave indelible tracks upon her cheeks so pure

Her red lips tremble as her body quivers.

About that man upon that distant shore

Never again will she feel his tender embrace

Or the warmth of his breath as he kisses her face

A man in Grief

A Man in Grief  


It must be very difficult
To be a man in grief,
Since "men don't cry" and "men are strong"
No tears can bring relief.

It must be very difficult
To stand up to the test
And field calls and visitors
So she can get some rest.

They always ask if she's all right
And what she's going through,
But seldom take his hand and ask,
"My friend, but how are you?"

My mind sitting passively in a pensive mood state

feeling receptive, thoughts to relate.

 

Calling to a sphere outside of my vision

no fear in the least the slightest derision

 

When soon into focus comes ethereal plains

where the muse can transfuse some spiritual gains

 

Wondering if that wondrous thought of inference

is a figment of my mind or ...

You can’t judge a book merely by its cover

Like watching actors play their part on a stage

As the plot thickens a spotlight so bright

Highlights the victims terrible plight
