And stag do fights
The homeless here read books
There always a sense of fear any time of year
Seeing seagulls give hungry looks
There's the Blackpool tower
Where you can escape the occasional summer shower
But the price in is obscene
On the streets, there are fortune tellers
And joke booksellers
The beach never looks clean
But for the kids, it's all fun

Tell your best mate that you love him
and tell him that you miss him
embrace him warmly when you meet
and if you have to
this does not mean you want to fuck him!
Just let him know you value him
that you're glad he's in your life
confess you have no interest
in making him your wife
ask him how he's doing
and be prepared to listen
provide encouragement to share
it could be...

Blind, I grown blind.
No color, no light.
Pain, I felt pain.
No matter, no gain.
Looking through the mirror glass,
things happen afar.
Taking notion of them,
as they were part.
There's no true,
there's no lie,
everything stays shy.
Scream, scream for those who can't.
Deaf, I am deaf.
No sound, no play.
Help, they need help....

How could she go
cause her daddy wasn’t far away
unless she really wants
to kiss to this sad song
the difference is we both wake up
to the cadence of a different love
then I am made like the villain
I only want a peaceful morning
do you remember when
I saw you fucking him again
don’t you forget
to say you’re sorry
the bloom is off the rose

He’s the guy
He’s the guy
all the answers
all the solutions
He’s the guy
He’s the guy
the spot in your undies
the hole in your sock

What a night
changed my whole perspective
tiny square piece of paper
dissolves on my tongue
hours of deep thought
time filled with colors and laughter
the world is big
I’m just a kid
someday I’ll have to wear a suit like my pop
pay the tax man
stand the picket line
I just wanna get laid

Stand at attention
sir yes sir
you are worthless
run till you puke
you aren’t even human
wool uniforms in the dog days of summer
we are gonna make men out of you
crying is for the weak
pain is fear leaving the body
spit shined shoes and foot lockers
made beds and floors you can eat off of
your mama can’t save you
you're a plebe

Streets filled with purpose
The Silicon valley is alive and well
Suitcases and Range Rovers
Palm tress sweep the sky
motorists hurry to plug in
horns honked with kindness
coffee filled with sugar and whipped cream
more a milkshake than a jumpstart
two hour snack pow wow
heated ping pong power lunch
making apps to scratch your back

It’s hard being alone
at least for me
I see folks kissing with promise
smiling with dignity
cupids arrow is dull
for the most part
it’s not real
maybe your elders have stuck it out
your folks are worn and torn
treated with cheap topical cream
the fear of embarrassm...

Life by the beach
students on fire
chicks with tattoos
streets filled with hope and crank
the guy from Hawaii is the coolest
away from mom and dad
high school was so yesterday
party at the Bob Marley house
after party in the morning
beer belly and whiskey dick
fake tits and nipple rings
warm beer and cold pizza
mac and cheese fill...

actually it’s early
brain never stops
mix between good thoughts and bad
this should be over since the end
of my drinking life
my dogs life
is this one of those nights I’ve been waiting for?
what to do…???
my best pal comes to town tomorrow
happy about that
maybe this shouldn’t be over
maybe this is just the beg...

I worked a summer in San Fransisco
they all stared at us
aliens in their sterile tube
sorry my ladder is an in convenience
I could see their computers
money traveling through space
mixed with twitter and “The Bachelor” clips
cubes with confetti and pictures of Hawaii
photos of baby Bro...

When we speak
Why you gotta look that way?
why you gotta spit on the stage?
you see we are young wolves
and we’re hungry for the last guy outside
come see us when we’re walking
they don’t know our kind of night
Sick and wear our hearts outside
on our sleeves
and we just can’t take no more
Yet the skies say we should come back home
I remember in disguise...

I tell myself to let her go
Is it her I miss?
just the idea?
just the company?
actually i miss them all
they all still hurt
kindness to strangers
makes a man comfy
just for a little while
then they hurt
they tear my gut space
suddenly I’m the Sunday funnies
and they lose weigh...

I create stress for myself
even on vacation
I’m working on it
“simmer down” they say
Am i that bad?
even the pope takes an angry shit right?
everyone has to worry about something
nothing but truth,
I’m not comfy unless I worry
I envy those who walk without baggage
how do they do it?
I can make it a day
then she scr...

I don’t wanna be on of those guys
out of place
emotional problem solving, constant
it sounded good on paper
now just more different
he’s being such and such a way
they don’t know where things are
why are they even arguing?
what people are we?
is today the same as yesterday?
yesterday as in when...

The army and fucking
Folks just need to know
The army will get you shot
Why the confusion?
Commercials don’t impress me
guns are loud, and blood is depressing
héros are human
bullets are real
Life is a deep breath you don’t wanna lose
young men with no options
thanks for your death
I can buy contraception
from a man from a country who shot you

I’m different from all the rest
these words will change you
stay with me
important info is to follow
the world is on fire
the mountains are moving
Susie has a gun
buy this, sell now!!
stay with me
This is an interesting group of letters
people like you.
heartbreak and iTunes
Facebook and menopause

Bleach and Cork
Darts, endless darts
a passion I never desired
guitar and words don’t heal the soul
no such luck for darts
I saw a blonde haired woman in a van today
I needed cigarettes and human contact
Thanks to her for making my drive
I suspect she will stay in my mind all day
What if she had car trouble and broken dreams?
More importantly: who...

I sat on a bench for an hour
ugly dogs and sad people
grey men with bad backs
carrying shit and ancient thoughts
I wonder about a blonde lady
was she the one who gave blowjobs and never made you call her
I wonder how long he will take to realize he’s gay
or hates his father
how much of that college degree do you really use?
do you feel pre...

scathingly steering myself towards salvation.
School Run: teacher testimonials and tallies.
an outcast from tradition.
Rousing the reluctant offspring,
combative to my requests.
We breakfast briefly,
on little balls of sugary synthetic yellowness
We arrive at school,
greet the countless glamorous goddesses
oozing out of the orifices...

I hear them,
I hear them calling out in the street
Issuing calls of despair and asking for help
And I would,
If I could,
If I had the power of legions
And armies and,
No, that just wouldn’t do
Any good at all,
Not anymore where
We are - fearing the worst
For a world where war,
Has become the only winner?

On Being Judged
A hundred cries of delight
Echo from red brick walls
As they tussle for a football,
And the girls are skipping in time
To melodies and singing rhymes,
Watched keenly by the dinner ladies
And playground monitors;
Just how will life blossom,
What scenes will introduce
Their hearts to the world outside?

The problem of domestic violence in UK households is a contentious issue. Everyone seems keen to point fingers and lay blame on one another without really addressing the issue. It has been prevalent in UK society for centuries, and is unlikely to go away overnight. Women, have for centuries been placed under the dominance of males, and only during the ear...

This short, has ben re-edited. Please do not read, if offended by the Author in any way. Above all, it is only one persons opinion on the backside of a one sided system, forgive him if you do not agree, it is in the main a response to the injustive of not being given the rights of a Father. It is okay for me to go to war it would seem, but when you come back a casualty nobody wants to know.

The Prague spring is a well known thing, but its summer burns intensely and all is overheated.
The last time I was here was long ago, and I think it was October, I’m sure it was October.
I have no elaborate plan, but the plan is elaborate enough: I really need a holiday, really need to chill
and relax and drink coffee and go to the gym, but also wild adventures with the characters I...

Win Win Win Till Money Kills All
Yes we have faults,
And I as a guy didn’t need the
Criminal record you gave after war,
So how do we now effect change?
How do we stop what is happening
Around this desperate - a Globe?
Mum and Dad now
Both have to work – placing

The British Have Soured
Have you lost touch old bean?
Or pondering the security to place law
Upon law to reaffirm laws –
Till blue in the face ‘we’ cannot breathe;
You wrap up a world that is done!
UK angered is laughing stock now –
With microphones in lampposts and

Can you, be bought?
Have you, been bought?
Economics dictate there is no money in the pot,
But are you, being bought?
All the country’s pride is at stake,
Has it, been bought?
Once ago, The Police never
Entertained the Gun,
Never penalized so badly
The man who claimed a run for freedoms,
Time ago, Bev...

So many sad and plentiful of nothing
Sad and plentiful, as if stuffing
Children like the rotting carcass of dead animals
Appeases all their needs,
Too many sad and plentiful
Without knowing the teaching of greed,
Too many lied to in concrete,
Denied every right to be free.

I Forgive, But Something..............Else, Doesn't! May It Never Find You (I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy).
2 Mortimer Avenue – Higher Blakely! Man if ghosts exist then you may find a few there, one perhaps being the originator of this rambling text. It was probably the first time I died; thrown on the floor for crying at my chicken pox that were irritated by urine contained in my rubber pants. I used to wet the bed back then with all the abuse I was going through, not so you would notice of course,...

Killing Down the Planetarium
Did you really think it was just;
About one’s sexual leanings?
Perhaps maybe a spat with ancient authority –
Maybe a calling for my father to
Raise his solemn head and
Gaze with morbid wonder at the dead
That walk The Earth?
Did you think a mere entertainer from
A demon or a saviour,

There is a Sun Up There!
There is a sun up there! It has been shining today and over the past weekend. I am pleased to see it, as for the past three years there has been little rays of light over the Northern parts of the UK. There is a moon up there too as I write these words, it is at the moment at the halfway point of its...
