Solitaire

entry picture

The Rook,

alone

bewildered stood,

 

he, 

fallen from his

flock now flown,

 

one wing seemed

bent,

for flight no good,

the other useless

now alone.

 

The Gent, 

unsure

in aimless wander,

 

she,

fallen from their 

path well planned,

 

his stick seemed

loose,

where once was stronger,

held by a firmer

surer hand.

IDS

Iain Duncan Wots-his-face
has now resigned and left a space
in Cabinet. The explanation?
Tory party machinations.
But then again, perhaps the bloke
just had enough of pigs, and coke.

THE CLEANSING TIDE

entry picture

The child in his arms, such a precious gift,

her sweet little smile would make his heart lift.

Born into a love that none could compare,

baby blue eyes framed with curly blonde hair.

 

Conceived and born on such love filled days,

from the moment he held her he was blown away.

His heart did a flip and his smile was so wide,

his devotion to his daughter could not be denied.

Significance of the Nineteenth Autumn

entry picture

As the nineteenth autumn has come upon me,
It’s a whole new world I see.
Treacherous creatures, so often, hush and hide,
And it seemeth to me, a change in tide.

The poetry of soothing sensation has gone,
The glimmering golden glow of the sun is now none.
Some say,’ The Head is battling with the Heart’.
Well ! All Logic has been torn apart.

As I gaze into the vast emptiness
The dawning...

The Fifty-Ninth Minute

The Fifty-Ninth Minute

 

 

     Don’t jump oh Lord,

Do not ponder expectations of living here,

Give yourself some room to manoeuvre

And sway instead the rhythm of life

As blues take an arbitrary hold,

For we are old and tired,

And sick of living lies.

    

     All our collective tears,

All our raging hysterics flowing

Salt, water, emotion,

Are not apparen...

Marks In The Sand

Marks In The Sand

 

Sitting in his ivory tower,

built on the sweat,

blood and bones

of those who helped him

build it – then, when they

had served their purpose,

sacrificed on the

gleaming altar of greed.

 

High ambition in this

glass and steel Babylon,

where His armies

were to take over the world.

Britannia slain but defiant

Each Branch I Snap

 

each branch I snap spills
accusations of every broken neck I ever wished
so out of politeness I bow my head
to show the dotted line,
the hemp tattooed severance knot;
that grace, which allows my hands
such time to forsake the face
of saved history
when everyday swings
the way of an ending that wont be changed
the grass, as always, redder
on that...
