Stuck In Your Head (a poem)

To celebrate that I have completed posting the sequence of almost a hundred meditations (thanks to everyone for all likes and comments on those), and also in honour of it being World Poetry Day today (thanks to Dean Fraser for the reminder) - I thought I'd post this little something.... 

 

I've got a poem that gets stuck in your head
stuck in your head, stuck in your head
I've got a poem t...

Heather

A tribute to Wallasey born astronomer Heather Couper (1949-2020) and her passion for life

 

1986 Halley’s Comet payed its orbital visit

On the clearest, darkest night

Looking skyward with naked eyes

Comet and tail obvious against the stars

Media covered the historic occasion

The Sky at Night had a special guest

Heather Couper stood outside

Enthusiasm infectious

Findi...

It Must Be Him

The place is Birkdale during the British Open Golf, and a case of mistaken identity back in the late 1980’s, as related to me many years later by a friend

 

Seve, he’s my favourite golfer

I recognise him from TV

Look, it must be him

 

He’s going into that supermarket

Let’s follow to be sure

For certain, it must be him

 

Be discrete, play it cool

Keep our distance

'Sign' of the Times (Reflections on 'Rude'!)

 

Apologies, in advance, for the rude words !

 

Folk who pee in public places (treating them as ‘loos’).

‘Concert-girls’, on partners’ shoulders, blocking others’ views.

Kids that kick your airplane seat whilst parents just ignore.

Gits who queue-jump at the bar -‘though you were there before.

 

Those who walk straight past you, without thanks .... or smiles.... or nods.

“Old Heads on Young Shoulders”! 

 

”You can’t put old heads on young shoulders!”, they say. 

But I think that I may have ‘come-up’ with a way, 

involving some sawing - and stitching - and glue 

(and a bit of a ‘heads-up’, in just what to do!).  

 

But, if I decided to give it a ‘bash’, 

that would leave a spare head and a body (to stash)! 

Which seems such a waste of a woman or man.

So, now I’ve develop...

'Man-Sized' Issues !

So, now those ‘Man-Size’ tissues

are named ‘Extra-Large’ instead. 

It’s another “sexist” issue 

that is messing with me ‘ead!  

 

It seems, the major problem 

is all centred around ‘Man’. 

Folk find this word offensive 

but I’m ‘flummoxed’ if I can !

 

I’m fearing for the future 

if this nonsense carries on. 

‘Cos they’ll ban the ‘Man’ from everything

A ‘Snitch’, in Time ! 

 

My mother’s mother, Granny Brown

was ‘muchly-loved’ (once) in our town. 

The care she gave; her happy ways. 

She cheered us, in her ‘ember days’. 

 

She liked to knit, but not to sell.  

Such quality, (oh, you could tell!). 

Each item, thoroughly bespoke 

- for gifting to specific folk.  

 

“Gran, that’s great !” I’d often shout.  

“You knit them, then you han...
