Rule Number One

Rule number one:
Do no harm.

Just answer me,
How could you hold
Something so fragile
In your arms for so long,

And then just shatter it?

Answer Me.

All around this town
assumed that you got an idea to go back,
you know that they can't be around
all the lights that swallows lights
that brings you
down.

For any..
for any day.

And please don't hang quite high
as you used to do.
I can still follow you down in the same way
that i used to do.
There are thousand and more and more ways \
of coming through.
And we can

Every Last Chip

It takes a long time to figure out what you're really all about,

There's no definitive guide book that takes a frank look, and explains the mysteries of life,

You just have to, "Go in blind," and kind of work it out,

And face and embrace with good grace, its pleasures and its strife.

 

There's no guarantee that you'll see' "Three score years and ten,"

No end date to state or indi...

THE SILENT MARCH OF 2001

This poem, out of date now, is about the foot and mouth outbreak in March 2001. and is a reminder of the vulnerability of agriculture.

 

 

Hardened men,

grim as granite

hide behind their faces

as fires are stoked

with carcase after twisted carcase.

Smoke, held low by mourning miist,

blots out the winter sun,

silently stealing through chilled valleys

and lonely farm...

I am yet to surrender to the ways of heart.. 
Knocking  on the vestige of conscience is incessant ..
The euphoria and the magic though they impart.. 
I am yet to surrender to the ways of heart..
One hears the mellifluous notes of the Mozart...
But the fate is sealed from the very start.. 
All those dreams are nothing but effervescent..

Lonesome Complaints.

Lonely little life.

Lonely cold nights. 

Lonely empty dreams.

Lonely dismal thoughts. 

Lonely silent tears. 

Lonely vacant heart. 

Lonely fake laugh. 

Lonely bare hands. 

Lonely broken smile.

Lonely crushed soul. 

Lonely waste of time.

Only the mighty survive with all there lies they've had to strive,

Abnormal Behavior

 

 

I used to be normal

as dull as it gets

but my mind took a left turn

ain't been the same since

 

I like being abnormal

I make no pretense

people leave me alone

and give me distance

 

Let others be normal

for them it makes sense

to all be like robots

I prefer Difference

 

On being abnormal

I admit with a grin

I've learned to live with it

March 2nd.

Can't concentrate
Can't sit still
Still can't hide the fact my father isn't here
And for now he never will

Sick of trying to numb myself
With countless amounts of beer
As every march I hear wonderwall
I still shed a tear

I wear a smile on the outside
But just a front for all to see
Somedays I still wonder if my half brother thinks of me

So please excuse me

A Farnham Prayer

On being turned away from a place of worship

 

Passed the playing children

on through the garden gate,

in haste toward the altar

to pray it's not too late.

 

But pew on pew is filled with souls

already in Salvation, 

I hear the call to other world's

some other congregation.

Not Cricket

My wife's sister asked how airplanes can do that

I said it's all to do with thrust and flaps

She said I was being filthy and gave my face a slap

Annoyed, I got dressed and went back to my flat

stopping on the way out to kick her bloody cat

At home the wife was taking an afternoon nap

so I quickly put my pads on and went straight in to bat

New lease of life

She sit's amongst the piece's

Of broken glass

And photographs

Reluctantly releases

The last

Of what was her past

 

The door's they slammed like thunder

Her tears they fall like rain

The warnings from her family

Whirl like a hurricane

 

She's no longer drowning in emotion

She has made it to the shore

She survives

we use the music to drown out the sounds of reality

Australian Humour

 

Australian humour's dry-like

Dry and droll's can be

And as I am Australian

That's what you'll get from me

 

The humour which I give out

At times is hard to follow

Now Don you must be kidding me

That's really hard to swallow

Which ate someone's pet cat

Is just a joke that I made up?

Dying Art

In this modern age of communication

It would seem the art of conversation

Is fast becoming a dying art

Its deteriorating and falling apart

Shouldn’t technology improve our lot

But DM, IM and SMS

Have turned our comms into a mess

The standard of language is coming down

She, for sure, was  warrior,

When sky was black as gold,

Dragged across the sunless sea

By men without a soul.

 

Her stories and narrations,

Her lives, as yet untold,

From slave ships and from factories

Were heard amidst the hold.

 

She heard the tramp of wizened men,

Who shivered in the cold:

Men who never saw the sun;

Nor kindnesses behold.

The kids are alright!

It could be global warming
It could be global greed
But it took the kids to make a stand
To highlight our planet’s hour of need

And the cries went up of truants
How dare they defy what we say
How dare you leave school early
Come back now and stay!

Something needs to be done
You grown ups aren’t even bothered

Born from a floating skull
adrift amid the shards
of the Kuiper belt.

A winged god in full
trans-Neptunian 
flight.

Fertile as an egg you created
the universe 
out of loneliness.

But what strange creatures
glide now in your 
alien heavens?

We, in this village
of water hope to seek
irrefutable hatchlings.

So in your name, libations 
of flesh are made but in return

Letting go

Let me tell you this 

a secret lies within oneself,

many dare to dismiss.  

Alas,

Loving one who is broken, 

Creates complication 

And bliss. 

 

A problem to handle,

That is not ones own. 

A secret to help bury, 

Yet not to hold on ones own. 

 

The truth is set free,

When their true self is recognized 

By the one who had the power,

Azeotropic distillation

in svalbard, i watch the northern lights

a neon bruise on the tiny patch of infinity that 

fizzes endless chaos atoms above my head

 

we’re the ghosts of those who touched us

but if you distil the maelstrom down to its purest form

all that’s left is your heart pumping blood, your brain crackling

and the saliva that passes between our lips when we kiss

How beautiful everything seems, even all happen contrary

Don't get the idea whether it's a dream, reality or a story 

Neither she feel regret nor any worry, 

It's a kind of feeling which has made her heart awry. 

 

 

Continuously only for that face her eyes seeks.

Music swirls in caressing spirals,

embracing a shelf of favourite books

thumbed and enjoyed over the years,

each proud and stiffened spine caressed

like mist around oaks once young.

 

Some of those covers showing their age

and I smile

at the music, its immediacy

and at the desperation of stored print,

the ludicrous desire to know all.

Death On A Pavement

entry picture

On hard wet ground, exposed like a pulsing nerve,

half a yard from the comfort of grass,

 

it writhed unsteadily to unheard music, while the

connoisseur’s eye judged its girth from a bush.

 

Rainwater marinated and near wasted after a night
