Twenty-first century satirical post-rock humorous verse by Suki Spangles. To listen to my audio just go to YouTube and put Suki Spangles in its search engine.


Youtube link: Mind That Child Another poem: Granny Farm for Gatsby (text below) And those rare observational gifts justify your estate agent's fee: "So, This is the kitchen, That must be the bathroom.. Yeah, that dude outside is your genuine solar-powered garden gnome.. So, we'll throw the solar gnome in gratis.. [Smiley face] Delightful.. AspecttoSaturncrecheleaguetables Upcomingareagenuinelampposts Rareopportunitybargainbuyorlet AB1respectableneighbourhoodpets DIYgardencentregastropubdentist.. So made your mind up yet? FloordoorceilingconifersofthoroughbredbrĀ­eeding.. So, you've had my five minutes, So, please give me my fee, So, thank you goodbye, Exit stage left me" So, There you now are - So deep inside the mortgagee kill zone; You've dished up your bank a wage slave-loving home. Your soul gravy shall drizzle commuter zone decades, Tumbleweed eyes glaze, Your plaintive rockstar days sand-blasted away, dinnerware-damned and betrayed. A lobster on simmer-to-boil-to-cold, So here's your keys, And here's a sweet strychnine flavour of rope, And how about a glass of champagne to soothe your soul's mini-stroke? Just think, it'll all be paid for - in forty-four years, And then it's the granny farm for Gatsby, If you're still here. What a bargain - Fear. Wherever you are in the universe, you're here. You're flipping fish-headed coins beneath the stairway to starfish. You're a lifer, you're a hamster - A hamster stunned on the careering karmic wheel dealing 6 billion other lap-dancing tap dancers.. Watchful - The Great Sardines are blaring above the broiling Tiggers of Spam. I'm mixing my metaphors as fast as I can; I understand. Ison floored into the sun. Will Planet X be closer still on its fun run? So cheer up, You're one of the lucky ones: Your solar-powered garden gnome will help you take command, For this castle of sand is your castle of sand. So if you're happy and you don't know it, Clap one hand.

Thanks for your comments on Board games SS.

I was driving around Berkeley Square only half concentrating (naughty) whilst people watching. You know, admiring the scenery and plotting violent deaths for those I didn't like the look of.

I saw an old defence lawyer in front of the Rolls Royce show room window and for a split second contemplated impaling him on a Phantom, I resisted.

Anyway, this came from that snap-shot of life.

Thanks again.

Suki, thank you so much for commenting on "write, edit, re-write, write, edit, re-write". I've just noticed it. You are obviously a fellow sufferer! All I can say is, thank heavens for those (all-too-rare) moments when it all fits together, flows and says what we wanted to say!

Thanks again Suki, and best wishes with your writing.

Dear Suki,

There is some hero or heroin from a set of books my parents gave to me who was named Suki. I'm desperately trying to recall the story, but the name remains unmistakable.

I wanted to say thanks for your liking 1977 - I tried to convey the feeling of the time and how we inherit things and watch them disappear in a cloud of memory. I respect your work so much, and reading in particular your Poem of the Week gave me much pleasure with its rapier wit and probing sense of fun.

you know, ive called my first book 'casually discussing the infinite' but i may call my second one 'into the gaping maw of existential bliss'. actually, when i wrote it i was thinking it sounded like a shpongle song, but i can get behind a silver mt zion double concept album as well.
