Whistling in the Dark

God is watching over us,
They say.
When we feel afraid,
Grateful or anxious,
We look to the sky
For reassurance,
Hoping for protection,
Consideration,
Or tender mercy.

Hope lies only in the sky.
Fear burrows under our feet.
The lost wanderer is afraid
To look down and advised to look up.

So believers are blessed
With good posture.

Ashes in a jar

Ashes in a jar

 

It has been said, that the road to hell is paved with good intentions

Not always lies and deceit, or other people’s pretentious

How can we even know where the path will be

The sign often obscured, impossible to see

 

Is it the left hand path, or maybe the right

Or, perhaps the middle ground leads to the light

Left wing and right wing mean little to me

Sacred Path

Sacred Path

 

we walked the ancient path together

where ancestors had worn the land

into a waypoint to the barrow

 

carefully observing rituals and customs

under azure skies we stumbled on our way

across this land of Albion

 

the hops the wheat the barley

bowing heads in solemn recognition

of the passing of souls

 

as we walked we talked of many things

Modesty

relax,

now start breathing,

everything around is around for the same reason. 

Catastrophe, catastrophe its all the same feeling

i'm too old to move on, i'm too old to keep dreaming.

 

When to move on is to grow and to grow is not leaving,

in a promise land we grow, and speak of the same reason

we speak of heaven and hell like they're not the same demon.

 

Well to move...

Night

Don't be afraid of the night,
take the feathers 
and follow the light
for in the light we forever fly, 
eternally divine,  
immortalised through time.

Three Saviour's Meet in a Bar

 

Three Saviour’s meet in a bar,

escaping the multitudes of disciples harassing them

they order drinks.

 

Leaving disheveled and worse the wear

hours later,

each is arrested for urinating in the street.

 

Samples are duly collected,

primarily because these important figures are of public interest,

and justice must be seen to be done.

 

A miracle is declared a...

Lift up thine eyes

entry picture

A scarlet ribbon torn in flesh

to vent a life 

needlessly shed

the innocent

like lambs are led

 

Yet sometimes

its the lambs that lead

they take their place

and hold the ground

and with their slaughter

love is found

The Resolve

Reality proves daunting

bit tricky to comprehend

 

Rigidity seldom sustains

must learn aptly to bend

 

Time plays a role pivotal

in forging future ahead

 

For your cup to be fullest

or empty if deem instead

The Brink

On the face all is cheery

deep within bit suspect

 

With answer writ large

sans effort don’t expect

 

Coming on to very edge

wonder if be able to fly

 

All efforts withstanding

but own beliefs I’ll  rely

I believe I'm an atheist

This morning, God finally

Put on his hat, and said

'Right - that's it.

If you don't believe in me,

then I don't believe in you

either.

So there.

- and don’t go asking me

for any more favours!'


Bang went the door

and I heard Marlene's dog 

bark as he passed the gate

It's all gone quiet

But I'm worried now that

he's not really gone

Hero

entry picture

Once-upon-a-time, a barman worshipped the Sun.

Worked nights so didn’t see much of it

but in his head he’d got stories of

the Fire God supreme,

Blaze Lord,

vanquishing monsters who'd eat out your dreams.

 

He called the Sun ‘Hero’,

believed it had six pairs of arms,

giant wings of flame

and the handsomest nose in the galaxy.

Made moons blush

and g...

In the 18th century the people of Easter Island worked hard

creating the statues that their information showed

were absolutely necessary for their future.


In the 19th century Easter Islanders realised

that statues were a useless waste of effort

and put all their energy into the obvious need

to worship the birdman.


In he 20th century the stupidity of the Easter Islanders

was obvious...
