Barba Tenus Sapientes

I never knew there were so many

Professors there they go again

Pontificating like regular

Mahatmas but some

(I dont say all) are hardly

Paragons or even that clever, one I

Knew researched female

Post-grads while

Plagiarism and skiving not to

Mention internecine warfare are not

Unknown in the more elevated reaches of

Academe so, while watching the latest

The New Curriculum

It used to be murder at school

Evading terrorists lying in

Ambush at the tuck shop

Life or death battles with tapioca

Blistered fingers for smoking in the

Cycle shed

An army of Latin grammar at war with my head

Jimmy Jones smashing my best conkers

Miss Evans the Head's secretary

Scourging my hormones

Sadistic Algebra wanting blood

Above all dreading that fight with...

Surfaces

At school we bullied Billy for being fat

Stole his homework pulled his

Hair broke his glasses

Accused him of all-sorts made his

Life a misery so in the end they took him

Out of school then

Years later I went out with a plump lass

Called Norma she pecked at her meals but

Never lost weight I

Accused her of hiding food and

Bingeing on the quiet and made her life a

NHS Reform

As Homo Sapiens crushed the

Neanderthals so robots have got our

Measure its a matter of time before the

Take-over then no more humans

No death those endless crude

Diseases a

Historical blip and naturally

No health means no NHS

Imagine the savings!

Just an on/off switch where the

Mouth was no

Stone Age ventilators or

Expensive buggering about in

Collusion

There they were beyond the

Railings in broad daylight, flouting

The rules, hundreds of them

Socialising cheek by jowl while

Above ground, as if

Condoning the breach

Sat an older couple on a

Bench having a

Picnic by the looks of it

Sandwiches flask the lot, I

Wondered if they'd been barred from a

Funeral and had come to

Say a deferred farewell before taking

Ea...

Hot Bloomers

You had hidden talents, special skills

One was bakinng bread

When first I smelt your crusty loaf

I could have dropped down dead

 

The staff of life, the staff of life is bread

A hot bloomer cant be bettered

The sight of you kneading fresh dough

Left my loins on fire, my lust unfettered

 

That first taste left me spellbound

Nothing was ever so evocative

From then...
