  1. Rescued from Oblivion

    If you’re feeling a little bit low
    why not purchase my poems below?
    diverting and cheap
    with nothing too deep
    you carry them round as you go.

    When going by bus or by train
    you can read ‘em again and again
    just put up your feet
    on the opposite seat
    and agreeably tickle your brain.
    By keeping the volume close by
    you can use it for swatting a fly
    it is lethal and keen
    and will quickly wipe clean
    - another ...

  2. You’re Welcome

    If winters are warmer well, that’s down to me -
    for I run over bikes with my SUV,
    I put bottles and tins
    in the wrong colour bins
    and then just for fun,
    burn coal by the ton.

    My unnecessary drives

    cutting broken hips
    from frosty slips,
    wintery chills,
    and energy bills.
    But please - no applause,
    it’s for a good cause.

  3. Snotty Nose

    Snotty nose, O snotty nose,
    where it comes from nobody knows.
    It’s not a cold, I’ve had the flu -
    the Swine, the Bird and the Man type too.
    Recovered, scrubbed up good as new.
    but the stubborn, sudden, snotty nose
    still hangs around, it comes and goes,
    its conquest needing several blows.

    I’m offered tissues
    by girls who have issues
    with a hanky.
    They’re manky,
    they squeal, unhealthy as well –

  4. Nothing going on

    When you’re facing the realisation
    that you’re lacking divine inspiration
    and you’re struggling to bring to mind
    a topic of the worthy kind,
    and you wonder what occurrence might
    inspire you to start to write.
    You may proclaim in a poncey way
    ‘O whither Muse shall I go today?’

    There’s nothing in the daily news –
    no burning topic you could use
    to weigh up every view and then
    dispense your worldly acumen.
    Whatever ...
