Tyson Our Gypsy King

Tyson Fury our King, The champion in the ring. 

He wins the fight effortlessly then starts to sing 🎤 

A pleasure to watch The Gypsy King fight

Hold  on to your seats tonight is the crowning night 

Wilder had not a bloody chance to win this one

Everyone cheered as each round moved on

Third, wilder tired, fourth he was done fore 

5th troubled Wilder thinking please no more

Little Miss Purity

Little Miss Purity

Little Miss purity a lady who wanted a man 

Decided to get one anyway that she can 

She prayed to the heavens and planets beyond 

For a dark-haired blue-eyed man, not ginger or blond 

The planets delivered a man who was dapper and flash

She took him down and spent all his cash 

Before long he was broke and under her thumb

Miss purity called him a fat lazy...

Snag Tights

A poem about Snag Tights 

I never looked good in tights till Snag 

now I wear them and oh boy I brag                                 

They never pluck they never drag or roll            

My love for Snag Tights  I can't control.                

They are made to last, no plucks or tears                      

With confidence they wear and wear.               

I show of my legs n...

Yesterday all my troubles melted like soft snow 


I loved you more than you could ever realise or know


Hand in hand our future ahead.  Today, I wake you're dead. 


Taken in the blink of an eye. Can't make sense of it all.


Knife crime on the rise, now you're the victim my Paul.


I vow to get you're attacker locked up forever inside 


He has no place to hi...

Sad Valentine

💔 Today I ached so deep in my heart for you 

Yet my tears where all in vain, and wasted

You don't want me, you never have really care

A fool I throw myself at you, I love you dearly

24/7 I pray you will be mine, yet your with her

There is no real love why should you care

My head thinks about you 24/7 can't stop it

I am deeply in love and I honestly admit 

Your my night and ...

happy days when a visit to Wales it pleases

To sit by the sea as the ocean roar teases 

A gentle breeze seagulls above, I am in love 

Wales my lovely Wales I thank our god above 

So many shades of green you delight so me 

I just love it when free days reunite me with thee

To take my shoes off.  My feet caress the sand

A packed lunch and can of fizzy in my happy hand

I tell you that I love you, you are loved dearly by me 
You don't say a word as you say its never going to be 
I know I am foolish to love, when we have never met
The last 21 years I have totally loved you don't forget

Sometime we get on ok, we laugh you make me smile
I pray that you could love me and show it for a while
You resist saying its never going to happen no way
I try yet, I just...

Blow wind blow

Strong powerful it hit the shores, sea waves crashed over sea walls 

Powerful determined to be free. Death total rising trees falling. 

Thunder lightening flashing the sky. Tin cans and dust bins pass by.

This storm out to destroy everything in its path and beyond tonight. 

Rain lashing down, drains can't take this water, we have floods now

Its worse than a monsoon feels like a TV f...

This Tree

entry picture

The tree stood years witnessing everyday life

Snowfall, rain, wind and thunderstorms heat

Surviving year after year growing old and strong

Growing in a town of poverty and pain and death

This tree has seen the afterlife and angels love

it has witnessed laughter, romance and sorrow 

It grew old, it is old but knowledgeable and strong

A gift from god so birds to nest and rest an...

Arthritis (This Poem Is About Me)

I won't ever get any better said the Doc accept it please                  

No your wrong I said it will get better, pain will ease 

I remember crying desperately wondering why, YES WHY

My head was clouded with misery, as I looked at the sky

Arthritis no it's not, it came on suddenly with out warning

it hurts to stand and walk,  first thing every in the morning

Only In Dreams

How wide is the ocean, how far away are the stars

Is there really life up there on Mars ?

heaven they say is above us and hell below

Many question but answers are few you know 

Nothing is for certain except I know I love you

in my dreams your my lover with out you I'm blue

Its Valentine's Day made for lovers who care

Yet  we only meet in dreams your always there

We make lov...

Someone Farted

entry picture

Someone farted on your poetry page 

caused a great big smelly outrage 

every where around was smelly

good job that's gone from their belly 

think that they had beans for lunch

people who fart out loud need a punch

so if your passing the page not farts 

please mind how your gas departs

to keep it inside is indeed a good start

or sound a horn to warn before it departs

Wood’s For The Tree’s

                                                                                     (Not me or my life) just a poem 
Sometimes you can't see the woods for the tree's

you think it's love in a mad confusion of time

When you see him and want to brag he is mine

six months later pregnant it's end of the line

he likes his fist but leaves no visible mark

No one could come close to you in my eyes it's you 

I think about you constantly, with out you life is blue

you tease sometimes you hurt my feelings, I cry 

Yet with out you I would curl up and just die

you are my everything, my love, my man yes you

I could walk away from anything except you,  my glue

got your letterLove


Grandads old chair is empty now, he gone

People say a lovely man hats off to John

a coal miner in his working years, poor sod

His lungs where damage by when 40 0dd 

pit dust rotted his chest and lungs inside

Suffering we watched we could not abide

They sacked him his job he couldn't keep

couldnt catch his breath, nana would weep

he coughed up coal dust from in his chest

Crystal - Poem by Marie 

My crystal I hold you in my hand
Take me to a far away land
here on earth or up in space, 
Take me to a far away place

... Show me heaven and a far away land, 
as I hold you tightly in my hand
wrap me in a blanket of spiritual lov
Through time and the veil now we rise above

Magical crystal work here with me
show me that which I want to see 
A glimps of the fut...

Tree of death

The Tree Of Death - Poem by Marie 

It was a really lovely tree
Roots deep spread underground
Its beauty made the people smile
They came to see it from miles around

Then one day a mad man came
Hung himself on a branch
Now passers by say its cursed
They never give it a second glance

Man took its beauty and destroyed it
His corpse rotted hanging from that tree
Now no one will go near it

Two Angels

Two Angels - Poem by Marie 

Two angels in a sat bar one night 
Thinking something's wrong, it isn't right 
its like a silence has fallen over the earth 
no one needs saving no deaths or births 

They did not know that they had fallen 
they had been bad and missed their calling 
god banished them from heaven to earth 
calling it their second birth 

so over a beer and a smoke or two

I am still here

Am Still Here - Poem by Marie 

Hello I am still here 

My mother used to visit a medium 
A lovely old dear 
She would say I have your father 
'Whispering in my ear' 
She would relay his message 
Loud and clear 
Granddad had gone 
But he was still so near 

Beyond the veil all still go on 
When we die still we live on 
As I got older things took a turn 
I heard those voices 
Yet I had...

She woke up dead

She woke up dead, yes dead in her heart 
She thought they would never ever part 
The Wicked man of stone ruined her life 
Why did he ask her to be his wife 

He knew he already had one tucked away 
She tries to cry but she woke up dead today 
A bigamist and a sweet girl of twenty three 
Signs where there she just didn't want to see 

Three week into the marriage a knock on the door

Snow - Poem by Marie 

People say its lovely, picture postcard looks 
In reality picture postcards are better off in books 
I have never liked the white stuff, or slippery ice 
Something about its dangers tell me its not nice 

It covers most of England, like a blanket of death 
I have never liked it, walking in it leaves me out of breath 
I slipped in it once and broke my leg, so I curse t...

Floaters in the eye

Floaters - Poem by Marie

I have big dark floaters in my eyes interfering with my vision 
the optician said its old age, from which there's no remission 
I remember when I was twenty I could see for miles ahead 
Now these eyes are not like mine, imposter's in my head 

I sat there and I got through the eye tests only to be told 
You need to wear bifocals. I picked some trendy glasses

Boy on a platform 4

Boy on a platform Wanted a date 
Waited to see her but train was late 
He watched her daily she looked posh 
He wanted to ask her out for some nosh 

Boy on the platform disappointed again 
British trains are such a blooming pain 
tomorrow She will be on time and say yes 
This boys love life's Such a untidy mess

Girl on a platform

Girl on a platform sat alone 
seems she is a long way from home 
wish that she would sit with me 
Alas I know it will never be 

This poem was inspired by the TV add 
About a young girl and a wishful lad 
I hope to write a whole lot more 
Girl and boy poems by me galore

Boy on a platform Dripping in sweat 
Looked so sexy, I'll never forget 
In his hand a diet coke 
This is just my kind of bloke 

Boy on a platform wipes his head 
How I wish he was in my bed 
His train pulled in he never knew 
he'd turned me on in every ones view 

As the train started to move away 
I hoped I'd see him here again one day 
Boy on a platform was it a dream

Boy on a platform 2

Boy on a platform in tight jeans 
In an instant caught my eye 
Made my heart start to thump 
as he passed me by 

He was about maybe 20 
out of my reach as I am 32 
Yet I smiled right at him 
There was nothing else to do 

He face went redder and redder 
his blushing drove me wild 
Yet comparing ages to me 
The hunk is just a child 

Boy on a platform got on train 
I wished it was my rid...

Boy On A Platform 1  
Boy on a platform looked so fine 
How I wished he was mine 
My glasses steamed up at the thought 
I wish I had a net, this boy would be caught 

He looked so fine in his check shirt 
I imagined him rolling me in the dirt 
Boy on a platform was joined by his girl 
But I will never forget him, I am still in a whirl

Johnny stood besides his brother 
crying Tommy look after mother, 
He was going to fight a bloody war 
tears fell as he walked out the door 

His mother prayed all night for peace 
asked the lord to let the gun fire cease 
innocent children taken from this life 
pain explosions sharp cuts the knife 

dying men decay in the ground 
A solution to peace has to be found

Were all born to die so why do it with Bloody War

Dear lord when I sleep tight tonight let me lose a stone 
I promise if you do this god I will no longer moan 
Make cakes, sweets and fast food, be free food everyday

Dear lord also make my Bust shrink and my Bum

My Friend Phil

My friend got abducted by aliens, they took her in their ship 
The beamed her with a magic torch, it made her kip 
She woke up quite Drowsy, No idea what they had done 
One said in broken English 'Boy that was fun' 

She thinks that they looked in her mind, laughing as they read 
The prong marks on her belly itched and where all red 
Before she knew it she was home in Ireland in her bed

Last Night

Last night as I lay thinking, you sneaked into my head 
I tried to turn you off from thoughts, but you stayed instead 
you made me remember valentines nights from long ago 
Me and you out for the night, kissing dancing slow 

I remembered how you said you loved me, and I you 
Then came the laughter and the places that we knew 
making love was easy that was before the war 
then out came a sid...

Wanna be a star

She wanted to be a star, Well known near and afar 
Someone posh in a Brand new car 
She wanted to be a star, Her fave in glossy mags 
dressed so fine, not in rags 

she never made it to be a star in her life 
She got pregnant and became a Gypsy boys wife 
Always shabby chic, kids in tow 
She wanted to be a star but Could not say NO

You say that you love me, yet you still hold a grudge 
I have tried every trick to erase it, still it wont budge 
I told you I was sorry john time and time again 
I would never have hurt you or caused you pain 

If you would shout at me god I hate you then OK 
instead each day you punish me making me pay

Lottery - Poem by Marie 

I have never won the lottery 
but if I ever did I'd buy 
A lovely little run a round car 
something pleasing to my eye 

The color of my car would be yellow 
it would be nick named The sun 
I would drive to all the beaches 
having loads of holiday fun 

I have never won the lottery 
maybe that's because I do not play 
but the thought of winning millions

Poetry - Poem by Marie

I do it in the Bed room do it in the hall 
I have also done it leaning on a wall 
I tried it in the grass even on the beach 
There is no where sacred or out of reach

seems that in verse I have a lot to say

There was a time when she lay on the settee legs slightly parted it turned him on 
Now at fifty two it does nothing, her magnetic sex appeals gone 
There was a time she would look in the mirror and see a sex goddess 
Those day are Dead her beauty no more a subject to address 

There was a time when wolf whistles made her blush when out in the street

Then she had seven others, men where just a toy

On the way home I held it close and very tight 

I almost dropped it, there was snow on the ground
