We Don't Move Very Much

entry picture


My wife doesn't move very much

when she's watching the TV at night

I supply the occasional coffee

to provide much needed respite


Set in a self-induced coma

she's not really lazy as such,

just fixated on life in The Jungle

where they also don't move very much


I can't extricate the remote

held tight in her vice-like clutch

so I'm forced to watch what she ...

A Minor Roasting

entry picture

Dear Father

I hope you are very well.

What a spiffing time we had last evening, myself and the other fellows. After prep we lit a roaring fire on which we toasted muffins and marshmallows.

Chadders said that Parkinson minor hadn't put a decent enough shine on his boots so he gave him a damn good thrashing, which was an absolute hoot.

Then we roasted him in front of the fire till he squ...

Jack, being a responsible lad, before going up the hill

took Jill to the clinic and put her on the pill.

But Jill, being a devious girl with her body clock ticking

didn't take the pill before she let him put his dick in.

Four months down the line she felt the baby kicking.


Jack went mad and said you've ruined my bloody life.

Jill said you can fuck right off I'm not your...

Waiting to Leave Home

entry picture

As they waited

his eyes surveyed the room

at all the things she'd amassed,

so recently risk assessed.


She'd become a virtual prisoner

in the house she'd strived to own.

The house she'd made a home

was now a source of danger for her.


As he wheeled her out the door

she asked how soon she'd be back.

Couple of weeks he lied.

He felt his stomach churn.

He k...

Westonbirt Arboretum

entry picture


Arriving en masse in Barbour green

middle class mummies in SUV's

with kids named Willow, Sky and Breeze

allergic to various nuts and cheese

and designer dogs on ten foot leads

(tripping hazards for OAP's)

pooping in the fallen leaves

beneath the beauty of the trees

Going On A Demo

entry picture

I'd love to go on a demo, a mass protest or political rally

Perhaps a sit-in...anything where one can oppose

But my hair's too neat, I don't have a beard

and I don't wear sandals or hippy clothes


I don't know the words to 'Ooo Jeremy Corbyn'

I can't relate activist stories

and I know I wouldn't feel comfortable

saying fuck Trump and fuck the Tories


So I don't thin...

Uncle Seamus

entry picture

Uncle Seamus was quite infirm

and couldn't get up the stairs

So he lived and slept in the living room

but still managed two affairs


The first with a local widow

who set his heart on fire

the second one more ambitious

with the Malvern Hills Girls Choir


He kept himself quite healthy

though his hygiene wasn't best

just washing round the edges

of his sweat-...

Unhappy Hunting Ground

entry picture

Here they come in droves,

the humble pot boilers 

to worship at the feet 

of the traitorous elite

with hair pulled out in clumps 

in frustration at those

unable to muster 

the inspiration to rise 

above the level of lacklustre 


Now nowhere to be found,

The Enterprising have packed up their teepees 

and headed for a happier hunting ground

SOAP : Corrie

entry picture


Where's the most dangerous place in the UK to live?

Is it an inner city ghetto

such as Mosside, Handsworth or Camberwell

where gun and knife crimes are rife

and violence is part of everyday life?

No, it's Coronation Street with an unbelievable level

of accidents, incidents and murders

all within spitting distance of the Rovers


The residents should be living in fea...

Chicken Bhuna

entry picture


She said she'd like me to cook her a chicken bhuna

but I thought I'd much sooner

do something else instead of spending half the day in the kitchen

making the whole house smelly 

and whilst doing so missing the footie on the telly.


Anyway, it never tastes quite as good as you thought it would

so I had a lazy day and in the evening we had a takeaway.

I stuffed myself a...

She's Hot Stuff !!!

entry picture


At eight o'clock this morning

as she was getting changed

suddenly, with no warning

my wife burst into flames


I shouted for my daughter

who stifled the screaming

then doused her with water

which resulted in her steaming


We buried her by the garden shed

Her face had lost its lustre

She told us that she wasn't dead

but you know...you just can't trust he...

She needs to lose a few pounds

my wife, mother of the bride

Pounds that clothes won't hide

So it's Slimming World

and counting points

and not eating what you please

such as crisps and chocolate

and full-fat cheese

To help her I've devised a solution...

she can have cheese but only emmental

which I'll cut thinly with my Swiss Army Knife

I'll eat the cheese, she can ...

Small Man Syndrome

entry picture

When wearing his built up shoes         

he's barely five feet tall

His hairstyle adds another inch

It's not much fun being small


Bullies call him tosser and fucker

and the word that rhymes with hunt

Who cares, as long as they don't put

shortarse on the front

House of Fraser

So House of Fraser has been bought by Mike Ashley

Sports Direct owner, lump of lard

Before he changes it completely

I think I'll shoot down there on my Pashley

and max out my credit card

Tyson On Death Row?

entry picture



I can't believe what I've just read in the local paper

Tyson (Keith-from-up-the-road's dog) is going to be put down

Apparently he's bitten a few people recently

including the postie, who had to abandon his round

He spent half the day at A & E having a tetanus shot

which explains the small number of birthday cards I got


Hold on a minute, isn't that Keith and Tyson o...

Have I Missed Out?

entry picture


When I was a child

I was never defiled

I wasn't abused, belittled or beaten

I wasn't made to feel a fool

My mum never made me go hungry

She always ensured I was clean

and always attended school


I had a good education, good jobs

and now a good pension

I have no debts

I'm very happy

I've nothing to worry about

But as I read the blogs of others

I can't...

Turning Up The Heat

entry picture

I was safe, boxed in against the world

with no wish to change the status quo

but you did something that hit me hard

and then the cracks began to show


You turned up the heat on me

and I'm really in trouble

I'm going crinkly around the edges

and now my yolk is starting to bubble

The Tempest

entry picture

There's a storm coming

You can feel it in the air

We don't know exactly when

We don't know precisely where

But it's coming soon

It will hit us when we least expect it

Waiting silently in the wings

it won't be deflected


It's building up its anger

It's building up its power

and will unleash its fury

like a wounded beast

It will vent its spleen

Its bile wil...

No Spitting, No Gouging

Home from holiday

Back in Britain 

A country divided

Not by the usual things such as football

We're all flying flags and wearing waistcoats now


And there's no longer a north-south split,

not now they've got their powerhouse

and the midlands has its engine

Besides, the north starts at Luton now


It used to be religion    

Christians and non-believers

The Line Call

entry picture

The ball leaves the racquet like a bullet from a gun

The receiver assesses that the ball is going wide

He stands his ground; there’s no reason to run

He couldn’t if he tried.


Was it a gust of wind, or intervention from The Lord?

because the ball now appears to be going in

His previous decision not to run is looking flawed

He’ll have to take it on the chin.


He pond...

Taking a Cat on Holiday?

entry picture


We're off on our hols next week.

When my wife suggested self catering

I said "I'm not having that -

there's no way I'm taking my own cat"


No, we're going half board.

Let's hope I'm not fully bored

lying around the pool doing nowt

but slapping on the factor ten.

I could always take a bike out

and go beyond the local town

but what if I have a puncture?

On Heptonstall Moor

entry picture

He was fourteen

she thirty four

but that did not matter

as they went up together

onto Heptonstall Moor


He the pupil

he that she taught

each day in school

and that Sunday morning

on Heptonstall Moor


He a child

in the eyes of the law

She made him a man

in those erotic few hours

on Heptonstall Moor


She was voracious

demanding much more

Tina + VAT

entry picture

Remember Keith's wife Tina from up the road?

You know...fat slag, designer bag?

Well I couldn't help noticing

she's recently piled on the pounds

She's not just fat

she's morbidly obese

If you rendered her down in a copper vat

you'd have a lifetime's supply of axle grease

Herman's Hermits

entry picture

Just heard Herman's Hermits on the radio

'I'm Into Something Good' 

Of course he wasn't really called Herman

and they weren't hermits

but that's not the point

The name was sort of catchy,

they were popular and had a few hits

Wonder what they look like now?

Probably like me...old gits

but at least they tasted success

before they called it quits

I wasn't too bothered

Kemo Sabe

entry picture

He had no face, he had no name

He used his silver bullets

to shoot you down in flames

I was Tonto to his Kemo Sabe

We were friends; I was a fan

When he rode off into the sunset

I was left to ask...who was he?

Who was that masked man?

What's he doing there?

entry picture

Who's that just pulled up outside my house?

I don't recognise him.

Perhaps he's going next door

but why pull up outside my house?

There's plenty of room further along.

He's not getting out, he's just sitting there.

Must be waiting for someone to come out.

No-one's coming out though.

He's just sitting there.

Why is he just sitting there?

No-one's coming out.

The Auditors

entry picture

We called them the seagulls

Graduate Entrants from HQ

Average age twenty two

Incorporated in the corporate loop

They would arrive in a flock

circle around for a while, then swoop


Having never worked at the sharp end

they were nevertheless fully qualified

to peck at everything

highlighting non-compliances

where they could find them

then fly off again

Something For The Weekend?

entry picture

Ever had a skip on your driveway?

They're not too expensive to hire for the weekend

You can get one with optimum fill

Exactly the size you want

One that perfectly fits the bill


You half fill it on Saturday

and look forward to topping it up in the morning

refreshed from a good night's sleep

But what happens overnight?

What you see makes you weep


Some bastard ...

The New WOPs

Italians entering America

with no documentation

were processed as WOPs

at Ellis Island station


Now migrants disembark at Sicily every day

Italy has no choice but to let them stay

There's nowhere to send them back to

Because in a modern twist of irony

they've thrown their papers away

Not Chuffed

entry picture

I've had it up to here with the railways

They can't seem to get things on track

so I took the opportunity  to get my revenge

I bought a return ticket and didn't come back


That'll show 'em!
