OK I got a bit silly with this one. A woman said that words do not matter in poems. HELP!

I wanted to blow up. Poems are nothing more than a wonderful collection of special words to tell 

an amazing story. So here is a twist on "The cat walked down the street"




The slinky slithery siamese cat slipped and slid strutting down the slippery street...

silly but sw...

Who could have known that's who he was

a man of Grump Land


His past added up to insecurity

that came out of his mouth

in the form of lampooning

Aspersion dribbled from his orifice

leaving a need for estuaries

in Grump Land for humans

to gain protection from his salty words


Yet there was a sweet spot

amongst the weeds and storms

A place he hid from mos...

“Mum, what’s a laboratory?”


“Well son, it’s a place where

Men in white coats

With hair all over the place

Make exciting things

That fizz and bang and sometimes smell rotten”


“Dad, how can the moon be all those different shapes?”


“Because it’s clever and it can.”


“Mum, what’s a Policeman?”


“Well son, he’s very smart and helpful

The things we say

1.The things we say


I suspect we are all guilty

Of saying things that just don’t make sense.

There are, of course, those oxymoronic little sayings

We all trot out every now and again.

I am guilty as charged, it’s an open secret

Old news if you will and, I would bet,

Even odds you have done it too.


So, whilst I silently scream and think “good grief”,

I do still ...

FunI love my words

SOS Abort

I liar, that’s what I am

I roll my dice from in my hand

I sit upon my throne

Forged from pain

broken promises, pretty lies

They’re all the same

traction, I’m unable to gain

I’m slowly slipping into my old ways

I was getting better

Now it’s worse

Every Name I hear, I curse

But hers’

I cannot do that

she is perfect

she is sweet

I lay my life at her feet

Daft again

1.Sounding my horn


I was zooming up the road

The other day

Saw you on the pavement

Walking towards me.

Put the window down

Gave a few loud hoots

Of my extremely loud horn

Stuck my arm out of the window hole, and waved.


Ah!  Oh dear!

Sorry if I startled you.

Made you jump.

Gave you a heart-attack.

Wrong person.

A genuine case of mistaken identity.

1.The Prowler


He’s creeping, quietly, stealthily

Hugging close to the treeline

Remaining concealed in the shadows


Ears attuned to every sound

A small rustling sounds in the undergrowth

Brings him to a sudden halt


He’s standing still now – rigid – sniffing the air

Weighing the immediate threat.

Silence restored, inches forward again


Assessing the wa...

Light hearted

1.Popping next door


I was in the kitchen one day

And Dad asked me to pop next door

And ask if they had any spare sugar


Not a big task I hear you say

Sounds pretty easy

Just to pop next door and ask


But the next door to us, that we don’t own

Is roughly five miles away

And that’s if I cut across the fields


I was tempted, to put it to Dad

That it w...

A bit of fun

1.Wind in my hair


I sit proudly upon my very finest steed

Feel the power vibrating under my feet


Picking up speed now

Enjoying the rhythm and undulations


Love the Wind, blowing through my hair

Living dangerously, no hats for me.


I’m grinning manically, hear music in my head

Relaxing, just letting myself go


It was all going so swimmingly well

Feb musings continued...

1.A birds-eye view of life


High up in my nest

King of all that I survey

Bedded down up on the crest

Watching carefully for my prey


Breathing slowly, breathing deep

Find that inner peace

Ready to inflict the eternal sleep

The provider of the final release


Lying and waiting for the go-ahead

Anticipation of the Green-light

The difference between alive o...
