Don, in what way did my poem on Coarse Work, offend?

And since you described it as 'what a load of rubbish,' it would be really nice to have your constructive take on it.

Might prevent my going down a dodgy road again in future. P.

So, at last, we can rest at ease

you are not a victim of that nasty disease.

If I had the dosh and the stupidity to boot
I'd jump on a plane that would be a hoot
sitting for hours with a mask over my face
and finally at last with gods grace
we could sit in that cafe and drink coffee and chat
about righting the wrongs and stuff like that
I miss the banter and weird exchanges
bugger I can't think of a good ending

Still your here and your OK
Nothing else to say, mate

Don you can post lots of stuff
but I don't have time enough
to read every post I get
in my inbox at least not yet.

I lurk as well you know
I have unsubscribed see below.

It is not because I do care to read your musings
No my dear. So Don, have no fear
I always will be lurking near.
Here or in the blogosphere.

Lots of thoughts your way go
this is just to let you know.

Where are you hiding
Are you down that rabbit hole
I know your lurking
you know I am no fool

I wrote you a little ditty
about the reaper drinking tea
nip along to this link
and join in the party

Thanks for the comment on H&M Don! From what the gossip mags say Episode 3 won't be far off! I suppose one could admire them for saying they want to be financially independent, even if I gather it is Prince Charles who is coughing up large sums to keep up their lifestyle. It just seems a pity about the family bust up, and I would think he might be a little lost in Hollywood after the novelty value has worn off. Let's hope I'm wrong.

Hello Don - am I right in recalling you mentioning Adelaide as your
part of the world? I've just been watching the cycle race Tour Down
Under on Freesport TV here in the UK - featuring the countryside
around Adelaide. A big event in a big country, given big attention.
AND won by a certain big name: Richie Porte. Hurrah!

Thank you Don. Your rhymes are good. Poems are hilarious still have deep meaning. To know you is difficult through your work. Like an ocean deep, your words have hidden mysteries. Yet, there is a drive to explore and discover those mysterious zones.

Don you might have read your version of it somewhere, but I specifically recall having seen the expression phrased as: A Picture Saves a thousand words. In other words, both of us could be right if there are 2 contexts. But thanx. Will check out the phrase elsewhere and if different to what I have just said will return to the arena. P.

Hi Don

You don't see what has been on our TV the last few weeks

Sometimes, some times we reach the mainstream news, most of the time, thankfully we don't.

It's why I come here to write, and more importantly read and ride the roller coaster of life.

Don - re Junk Mail - the big difference with your system and ours is that we have to provide an A4 page and envelope - requesting opt out (back through the postal system) every 2 years. With 41,000 residential homes (not including business premises) occupied, in my area alone we are talking big numbers of felled trees nationally over a single generational lifetime - and that is before we even get to the question of the junk mail itself. I know of no other country that does this in the English speaking world - and where the post office ignores the householders request in writing (usually a sign) on the door. It is a total farce - even 3rd world countries are showing better recycling ummph than ours. Makes me so cross. 😡

Hi Don - Brewing Up. Certainly is politics and driving us absolutely potty with the different takes of MP input and delay. Politicians all seemed to have reached a new level of public disapproval - and it will take them a very long time to regain their street cred if they ever will. But I for sure, am not the lone voice in the wilderness. P 😫

Hello Don. Thank you for commenting on my poem.
I think we're all developing all the time as poets. I cringe at my early stuff but it was all part of a process or an ascent, to use your analogy - though I'm not sure I'll ever make it to where I'd like to be.
I used to live in Ausyralia. It's a beautiful country. You'll have to open an open mic night there! If you don't already go to one!
