I-solation

entry picture

Frantically he taps on the glass

Louder as they pass

Now he screams

But not through a window

It's a screen

Nobody knows

He's scrolling

His soul away

Ruth
needing a recharge
soul has returned
talking to someone
finding without text
a meaningful conversation
mentally unbearably painful
hard to maintain
without screaming again.

Don
Orstralia sounds good

Christmas Downunder

Our friends all send us Chrissy cards
Bedecked with snow and holly
And riding on his snowy sleigh
You guessed it, Santa jolly

Forget it's 40 degrees and everyone's sweltering
We all dance round, be jolly (make out)

We open Chrissy presents
In paper tree'd and snowy
You guessed it Santa stars again
All centre-put and showy

Forget it's 40 degrees and everyone's sweltering
We all dance round, be jolly (make out)

We sits ourselves down for our din
Roast turkey, chicken, duck
It's bloody hot, still 40 deg
All I can say is f......

Forget it's 40 degrees and everyone's sweltering
We all dance round, be jolly (make out)

I'm sure card/paper sellers
Must know some Chinese guy
With piles of cast-off Chrissy stuff
Us suckers always buy

Looksee Aussie Aussie Plenty Santa. Going cheap......

So good Ruth....

Here's my little Christmassy tap tap contribution

That tap you heard on window Ruth
Was really our friend Santa
You didn't hear red Rudolph
Doing little canter?

Of course you didn't Ruthy
He won't come tap tap tap
Until the eve of 25th
Till then there's quite a gap

He's gotta oil n grease the sleigh. Rudolph needs a nose refresh (fades to pale pink in 12 months). Elves gotta be rounded up and brought back from hollies in Bali (and an acceptable paying contract sorted. One year they went on strike over pay. Can you believe that Ruth?). He's then gotta send the team out to all the charity shops and collect gifts for the kiddies. I hope he don't leave you a secondhand trike in error.

As writer of this 'drivel' I get as much pleasure as you the reader. Maybe I could publish my own book 'Drivel According to Poet Don'

Followed up with 'More Drivel.....' 'A Whole Lot More.....

Who's this driveler Don Eth?......

Dunno pet. Some oddball from Orstralia.....

Isn't it Ostrailya Eth?.....

Not according to my cyclopedia pet.....

I told you Google is the latest update Eth.....
