Biography

Have been on and off this site for some time now and found it to be a most enjoyable experience. I'm in my late eighties now, on the last lap as it were. I self published a collection of my work inspired by W.O.L. in 2016 entitled "NOW I KNOW WHERE I'M @" It's somewhat larger than the usual, containing about eighty pieces with varying depths of profundity inter woven with humour tinged with a gentle cynicism regarding most of life's aspects from religion and all its illogicalness through to the more tangible objects, where faith and good imagination are not required to perceive existence. I am a flat earther in one respect and that is when death overtakes one we're all shoved over the edge on top of "The Great Compost Heap" to continue doing our bit, albeit in a less sophisticated role. Oh and if you might be interested in my paperback it's on sale at lots of outlets including Amazon and Waterstones. £7.99 ISBN 978-1-78222-490-7

A SEASONAL STORY Up sprang a gust of playful wind scattering cherry blossom in this May time spring swirling round legs old and rickety a scene of enchanting serendipity 'Twas a canine's random steaming stools transformed into petal encrusted jewels euphemised on this fine day when God's wonders combined to favour the dropping from a Pit bulls antisocial behaviour An accidental work of art forged by the elements taking part this vision of wonder, the soul to delight. Blossom covered lumps of shite

Ken - what do you think of the latest utterances from the
EU's "John 'Claws' Junkshop"? Even avowed "Remainers"
seem dubious about the intentions. But it surely endorses
what has been suspected from when the Referendum
Party(Goldsmith/Walters) warned against what was planned
- including an EU army and non-accountable police force -
and was roundly mocked for its "ridiculous" assertions.
Power does strange things to those on the Continent!!
Perhaps JCJ sees an emperor's role on offer?

Ken - thanks for your message to my site page.
We agree to differ about the perceived benefits to the
UK of membership of the EU.
It is fine to dream of a Utopian world when, like lambs,
we lie down together. The jackals that come with each generation always seem to spoil the peace party and present a problem...witness the posturings and threats of the leader of North Korea.
Each has to be faced by the existing generation and
there's no easy solution, as our forebears have found.
We should always hope for the best and prepare for the
worst. Or - as WSC observed: Better jaw-jaw than war-war. But tragically, there are those who aren't
listening.
By the way, I enjoyed your site poem about age. Much to ponder and agree with!
Cheers.

Hi Harry. Hope your safely back in your rut.

Him in North Korea wouldn't be so belligerent if you and I had international bus passes.

Hi, Ken,
My worlds a bit mad at the moment so only saw your comment on my prof tonight.

You are absolutely right about your deterrence effect (I always wondered how those Koreans wrought up their courage...now I know - sheer opportunism, as soon as they found out that we were demobbed)

I`ll tell you what as well... If that big fat pig in charge there now ever comes over...well slice him into a million little bits with our pension cards.

Keep the poems coming!
