Thanks muchly, Stephen, for taking the time to read and comment on Care. Have tinkered with it a bit now. The industry is a real disgrace eh? It needs nationalising, now.

Beautiful poems Stephen. I particularly enjoy 'Memory Tax' β€”it is honest and witty but also a little darkβ€” a bit 'Dark Mirror' esque. Well done on all your publications. πŸ˜ƒ

Conniption is an old term
remembered fondly by old men like me
whose mothers always used to tell them
"don't have a Conniption Fit!"

I really appreciate your kind words. It's part of a series called, rather pretentiously, 'Poems of time and place'. I'll put some more on the profile.

Not a catholic, even part-time. I did once have a mitre. It was a football signed by Bobby Moore.

More power to your pen.

I don't usually read poets or poetry.
I'm just different that way.
But I read this and was impressed.

Each time he climbed another mountain peak,
He took a slice home as a souvenir;
Nothing too big, just a vanishing scrape.
One day, on cue, he heard the mountain speak,
And through dawn’s modest light, it shed a tear
At such a violation of its shape.
This act would likely finish his career.

You used the same term, "Atmospheric"
that the other guy used.
Is this a new thing?
Is it caused by Global Warming?
As I think about it,
My pressure is rising.

Paul Sayer is even in here.
He is everywhere.
I think he may be an anarchist
trying to infiltrate each site for devious purposes.
He even changed his name to disguise his real identity.
I think he may be a double agent poet.

Your recent comments on my poem "Well planned return" inspired me to wtite "Monkeys filled the vacuum".

I hope you don't mind me including ideas from your comments.
