First performed Manchester Green Room 1998 Co - Hosted THE BIG BANG at The Ducie Bridge with Big Bill Doran. I currently work out of a studio within Islington Mill, Salford, Manchester where I spend most days painting and writing with Augusta Darling. She is still very much part of me and intends to continue writing and hopes to publish her poems soon for those who may be interested. As for me, I wish I was as good a poet as she , I wish her the very best of luck. The link to my my blog site is: http://wwwarteefarteemanchesterman.blogspot.com
Where Do We Go From Here? Where do we go from here? Not an uncommon question I hear you say Gone tomorrow Here today Where to go When to stay Here one minute Gone the next For one who has got there The question 'Why' is the catalyst? Was he pushed? Was he pissed? Or for that matter Nothing's offered on a platter So who gives a monkey's uncle? The question nonetheless remains Where do we go from here? Dear Even, as it invariably is, singular Where do I go from here? Having got here From there With little or no time to spare Is neither here Or there A mere bagatelle Can't you tell And I for one Don't care I don't care A flippity gibbet A fuckity Duck Still Where do we go from here? Despite all the fuss Time and tide waits for no man Ebbing and flowing At our comings and going Next thing you know You will have missed your go No second chance No backward glance The bus of life will pass you by All because you stopped to stare Three will come along At the same time And guess Who won't be able to afford the fare Fair? I don’t think so Do you? So where do we go from here? A glass of crack and a smile of beer Well once again We stand alone Seen it Done it Worn the vest Tread the well worn path My friend Lay back and think of England Mendacity at its best Drown your sorrows In whiskey Drown you sorrows in beer Where do we go? I really don't know Where do we go from here?
