Racing past the post
one winner but many losers

Long distance truck driver, a strange encounter - - - now he fights for his life
She stands motionless waiting
a lone hitch hiker
Observed nervous awkward manner
Where are you going?
Hospital bed, inquisitive nurse asks
Where were you going?
Falling into deep trance
body paralyzed, room lights up
Mystic fiqure looming above
unsettled spirit beckoni...

Searching for socratic inspiration
pen craves poetic appetite
emotional sunbeams golden moments
first taste not enough.

Weather forecast given
clear as mud
sunbeam window gaze
Summer says hello
coming out today?
white T-shirt, jeans
ready in seconds
halfway down street
dark as night
realizing minimal protection
ambushed without mercy
fast and furious
I returned home
the Gods laughed.

Dreams to come true
kept us moving forward
A lifetime of promises
crushed inside a changing world
A disillusioned today is beyond repair
tomorrow now becomes isolated
As we fail to remember
how it once was.

Slipping,sliding downward slope
brushing off past mistakes
fighting talk not enough
prove yourself to the cause
loyal supporters all rally round
proud champions Northern League
Stockport County Football Club
first leg of comeback complete.

Asking various questions of yourself
ability can easily be in doubt
Asking others helps support this quest
disbelief ends only when awareness begins
Asking yourself again, answers will wait
till such time rejection means nothing.

Evil predator strikes
places of worship
killing assembled praying
easy targets slain
millions replace victims
each praying harder
condemning barbaric atrocities.
Guilty as charged
murderer stands unaffected
prayer book placed
grey stone cell
anxious spirits inflict
inhuman silent screaming
life sentence passed.

He hides, he waits
what he does not know
are the fatal consequences
that in this waiting game
will soon take place
unfortunately then it's too late.

The faster you run
distance never really alters
only when drawing breath
something or someone says
your dreams never left.

Six rainbow cloudburst smiles
spectrum of radiant colour
leprechauns dance throughout the night.

Disagreement at the Randy Dandy Gentleman's Club
fruity vodka cocktail thrown, hangbags at dawn
choice words, full verbal onslaught, heated encounter
Tory Boy hurls insults at the Red Queen
as two lovers quarrelled chess match agreed
forfeit for the loser paying for splash out meal
winner has Silvio Quickfinger the barman for the night
Q C Cyril Boychaser voted in as referee...

On the run
left everything behind
no one believes
I was nowhere
near the place
preying hungry fox
unearthed shallow grave.

Manor house countryside views
weekend club exclusive membership
Security measures private grounds
secluded from prying eyes
Oxford Professor Sidney Oddball
Master Keeper bondage dungeon
Physical Instructor Fiona Feelgood
Sauna Mistress, temperature hotspot
Kinky submissive Nicola Toylover
Pink tickler playmaker fantasy
Cambridge Lecturer Herbe...
