Blue Umbrella

sun shines down on love

rain spatters lonely grief

only my blue umbrella's

a consolation and relief

 

she's left me for another

I'm stuck in a Scotch mist

imagining her in his arms

the passion of their tryst

 

but for my blue umbrella

I'd sink down and drown

or reach for my hat and

decamp to another town

 

the storm rages overhead

my umbrella keeps m...

Drop The Tears

No-one likes to see tears, that

Liquid form of human distress,

Yet human life being what it is

They render make-up a mess

 

I'd never observed you weep

Your trusting eyes always dry,

Till catching me with Matilda

Made you break down and cry

 

Tears clear the air like a purifier

Provoking a quantum of sympathy

From anyone that can summon

Imagine leaving behind that cash

Lovers weeping at the bedside

Tho...

McFlurry Saved the Day

`




McFlurry was the beast
that preyed on the
old ogre of a day
spent too long
in lectures & humidity

Across the river
of the campus jungle
McFlurry crouched
and pounced upon
the grizzly weariness -

ripping it to shreds
with creamy razor teeth
& cookies & cream claws
as we ended yet
another uni day
