Mundane

My insides writhe like pit of snakes
As my mind runs away.
It flees from my mistakes,
Made with good intent,
As fast as my ambition got me there.
Why does my ego tote me around like a child?
Why does it feel like I'm always being punished
By my mundane thoughts?
What am I doing?

Rotting.

I eat the snake.
I abandon my ambition.
I punish myself from now on.

(with apologies to Lewis Carroll)


‘Twas Brexit, and the slithy Gove
did frottercrutch in dwarfish glee;
he snicker-snacked the Camerove,

Beware the stabberjock, my son!
The empty eyes, the robo-glint!
who fellobrates the Murdocrone
the Ruperturtle übergimp!

He pallerised the BoJo cloon
they chummed upon their sunderbus
emblazoned it with fibberoons

Sadness Slain

Sadness Slain

 

Endurance is salvation’s gift,

To help your inner spirits lift,

Don’t let fear blockade the door,

Have the ambition to explore,

Defeat is something to toughen your skin,

Keep on fighting and you will win,

To overcome with great speed,

Neptune’s fury you shall need,

With power and dominance in the mix,

Let temperance hold your mortal wish,

Sancti...

Ambition

I’m going to the top of the hill

And by hook or by crook

I’ll get there,

I will

 

It’s sunny at the top of the hill

With sun beds and free beer

And friendly people

With goodwill

And cheer

 

When I get there

I’ll relax for a while

And contemplate my climb.

Now I’ve reached the summit

Things can never be the same

And I can only go downhill

Again.

Above, Beyond

entry picture

The morning, crisp and broken by the curfew
Of rising larks and pigeons in the choir,
Its breaching sun is bursting through the grass dew
And thinning out the misty dawn's perspire.
Many rest upon their linen sheets around
And you, the only currently arise,
Solo is your ally when breaking the ground;
Undistracted, undisturbed - your alibis.

Your muscles twitch uncertain of their purpose,
Or whether purpo...

The Template of my Being

Been there

Done it

Eaten it

Drunk it

Almost drowned in it

Nearly died

 

Praised it

Cursed it

Dodged it

Traversed it

Just you name it

I’ll have tried

 

Smoked it

Snorted it

Been traumatised by it

Reduced to tears by it

Laughed and cried

 

Run it

Walked it

Chased it

Caught it

Wished I hadn’t bothered s...

18 months experience

entry picture

18 months experience in:

filing, stacking and procrastination.

Got all the skills you need

to capture your attention.

I' ve made a million cups of tea

and then watched it, undrunk, swirl down the plughole

with a gurgle it was gone,

Like my ambition.

£250 a week

to sit and chat,

wonder what to do at the weekend,

Wondering, where's the party at?

Finally five o'clo...
