My Injury Time

I was once injured in a time gone by. 

To describe my dread I now shall try.

I broke nine ribs and gravely hurt my arm,

I asked, 'Do I really now deserve this harm?'

 

Twelve days in hospital I spent,

So slowly by they all surely went.

I lost my freedom and my dignity 

And no-one understood my agony.

 

I was in great and constant pain,

And like this I thought I wou...

False Advertising

One thing I can't stand is false advertising,
Though it happens so much, it should not be surprising.
So while you think you are getting a wonderful deal,
Later you may discover those claims were not real.

When you make that transaction you may feel elated,
But when you get what is sent you may be deflated.
You may then be cross and you may be distressed.
You may feel foolish and are far ...

Nature Poem

I adore our Sun for it brings me cheer.
It takes my angst and takes my fear.
It makes me happy and it sends me peace,
I then believe this feeling shall not cease.

I relish the great, green rolling hills,
And with so much joy - my heart it fills.
And I love the sky when it is blue -
I then rejoice at this delightful view

With wildlife one sees all around,
Such beauty it must to us asto...

Ukraine

On Putin's hands much blood does stain,
From the dreadful invasion of Ukraine.
Russian tanks and armies have been sent
To destroy lives - much of whom were innocent.
 
Senseless and evil - it must be described,
As many Ukrainians flee or try to hide.
Putin - a man the world must surely despise,
As we hear his words, which are full of lies.

While Ukraine still tries to show resistance,

Drunkenness

Being drunk can take us to a wonderful place,
Where we may be merry or just stare into space.
We may become silly but reactions are slowed,
And we may either be calm or we may explode.

Invincible is how we often do feel,
Where the world is all great and life is ideal.
We may believe we'll be like this for ever.
We can become lively or think that we are clever.

We may reveal feelings or...

The Wall of Life

In life we build our special walls
Behind which we choose to hide.
It makes us feel safe and secure,
And it keeps us all dignified.

It shelters us from all the world,
And it makes us feel respected.
But this wall can be knocked down,
Which is often unexpected.

And if your wall is now destroyed,
You may now feel quite exposed.
And others may then stare and laugh,
And your faults beco...

Justice

Sometimes justice does not prevail,
And life becomes unfair.
Sometimes the hardest workers fail,
And hope turns to despair.

Sometimes we see the fat cats thrive,
And the little people do then suffer.
Sometimes the careless do survive,
While judicious lives do become tougher.

Sometimes punished are the good,
While the sinful are rewarded.
Sometimes the best are misunderstood
And the ...

Bowls

Bowls - it is a wonderful game.
And each time we play it is never the same.
To reach the jack - it is the mission,
But first we must put it in position.

Pick up your bowl and take your stance,
Then right ahead one must now glance.
Round in an arc your bowl should go,
Something of which we all must know.

But in certain moments when times get dire,
One may even feel the need to fire.
S...
