Sometimes I wish I

were a little more happy.

But I just feel

so darned sad.


Sometimes with myself I

get a little angry.

Sometimes I get

a little mad.


It's said to "Look

for the silver lining."

But all I see

is the dark cloud.


I try to quite

the uneasy voices.

But sometimes they are

The Ballad Of Billy Nomates

The Ballad Of Billy Nomates


You were bigger than a bus,

with a face as red as Martian dust

and a neck that started somewhere in your crown.

I was small and insecure,

as I approached the guarded door,

knowing that you were about to put me down.


You were giving me that look

that said you couldn’t give a fuck

for my need to get beyond the ticket box.

By: Ali Taha Alnobani
He was lying on the grass
Looking carelessly at his watch
He needs to relax
But a voice is slamming his head:
Tick … tick
Seems saying: life is just a trick
He took a picture out of his pocket
Ripped into small pieces
Paths and routs
Plants and shoots
Telling the happiness rare story
About the unlucky traveler

Blue Lights, No Siren


Blue lights, No Siren
The ambulances whiz past to Alder Hey…..
All day and all night.
They pass.
Some without blue lights and sirens, I hope…..
Hope……They are just going to pick a little boy up
And, take him home
I hope he’s going to a nice home……
Where he lives with people that love and appreciate him.
For the gift he is.

Four Leaf Clover


Four Leaf Clover
I saw two leprechauns last night
Doing a dance around our garden light
So I snook out the front, and down our back alley
with my hood pulled up just like a scally
Scaled next doors fence, then over ours
with a fishing net and two jam jars
Then I crept up…..I caught the two
They didn’t know just what to do
