WASHED UP

Gazing down at stained water in a slow draining sink,

Arrested me in mid-motion and caused me to think -

Absent mindedly wiping a newly clean cup.....

How we go day to day until we're all washed up.

.................................................................................

◄ HANGING AROUND

CHRISTMAS SNOW - a song for the Season. ►

To Colin, Rose and Harry - and to think I had thoughts of
profundity setting these lines out on WOL! You debunked
that in delightfully entertaining fashion to add to the
blog in ways I hadn't anticipated. I am flattered that
my lines evoked your own contributions.

M.C.
Now you`ve frightened me!

Look what`s come out!


I`m strainin` me perishin` lug `ole
Attemptin` to figure out why
We all disappear down a plug `ole
When the time comes upon us to die.

love the poem M.C. but just couldn't resist trying to out-limerick Mr Hill,hence......

Gazing down at red stained water in a slow draining sink
they came in and arrested me and clapped me in clink
cos I absent mindedly forgot to wipe all the blood off the knife
now I go day to day in an orange jumpsuit
for trying to end Colins life.

(I'll get him next time! MWAH-AH-AH-AHHHHH!)

Pardon the lunacy Mr N.
