Serendipity

You’re like a perfect picture of everything
Your mind, your laugh
That genuine smile 
You’re like a breath of fresh air
So pure, curable
It’s insane how you made me feel 
You want me to believe I’m sane. 

I almost lost in all hopes
Love, life, happiness in whole
It was a downfall, endless hole
Somehow you came into my life 
And proved the world isn’t that bad after all.

Your words ...

I COULDN'T CARE TUPPENCE

Nippity-pippity, flippity-gibbity,

I couldn't care tuppence about serendipity!

Life is a craps game, a stage-play, a dance;

Life is a sap's game fate plans in advance!

Nippity-pippity, flippity-gibbity

I couldn't care tuppence about serendipity!

“Mummy,” queries Oliver, “What does serendipity mean?”

“Let me see your teeth, Ollie. Are you sure you brushed them clean?”

“Well?” persists the little lad as she rushes him out the door.

Words like that, she thinks to herself, should be against the law!

 

She chats about the day ahead, his attention goes astray.

But now it all comes back to him as they are on thei...

The Choice (a true story)

The Poetry Spoke raffle

Two prizes remain.

The first is a G-string

Of chocolate. Insane!

 

The second's a diary

and calendar twee.

Heh, someone's got a choice.

Oh heavens, it's me.

 

My ticket has been pulled.

I start the long walk.

To cheers and crude comments

I feel a right dork.

 

I could take the G-string

and give it to Izz

Serendipity and Happenstance

She’d lived a life of chastity

Devoid of boys or men

Some fifty years of life alone;

Well, almost – until Ben.

 

He met her quite by accident

Both at the Old Folks Dance;

They chatted over biscuits,

Discussing potted plants.

 

Ramrod straight and military,

Grey haired and nuthatch-neat,

His gentlemany tete-a-tete

Complicit and dis...

Serendipity

For finding a nail the shoe was fixed.
For gaining a shoe the horse was available.
For having a horse the rider was on stage.
For involvement of the rider the battle was won.
For winning the battle the kingdom was gained.
And all because of the horseshoe nail.
