I am a person


It's coming at me through the trees A Pumblechookian monster Invisible to human eyes. "You cad," I say, "you bounder, You shervishable villain," And still it struggles onwards, Growing in stature with every word I mutter... Will somebody please tell me why I'm so terribly afraid, Always so terribly terribly terribly... And now it's raining as well Isn't that just typical? A Pumblechookian monster Singing in the rain, And me, a lonely old Dick Swiveller, Pennyless, yet strangely hopeful, Having to go without breakfast To feed my darling Marchioness.

The picture of the owl is by Arthur Rackham.

The Naked Ape is one of those books I keep meaning to read but never get round to. Maybe one day.

Thanks for your comments and interest..

Fab photo on your bio. Terrific bio too. Interesting how, in the small version by each entry, the picture looks entirely different, like two glowing eyes.

Did you ever read 'The Naked Ape'? Could well be eons before your time. But, maybe not.

No, there is no suspense here at all!

A Pumblechookian monster will be shervished by any half-way competent halberd-bearer loyal to the crown!

Surrender not! No, never surrender!

Fear is the ticking of a clock. The dawning of a day. The passage of the sun.
Fear is the growth of hunger, the resurfacing of thirst. Fear is time unplanned for....

Fear fears the planning of a day. Even that. Shervish fear forever!!!

Welcome to Wol....i quite like your sample poem.

There is a saturation point for everything beyond which nothing pain, no fear, no loneliness....HOPE and SURRENDER!!
