P1040002 (1280x960)

 

The bed is for sale now.

The wallpaper’s gone.

The window is bigger.

The lights are all on.

 

The monster is missing,

But that’s no big deal.

He’s down at the big house,

 

Copping a feel.

 

The nightmares are leaving.

And so is the smell.

This room of my childhood.

No longer my cell.

 

The old moving finger,

That many pains writ,

Now pens a fresh panel:

 

Enough of this shit!

 


To keep me in coffee, you may wish to

Whatever the sum, I’ll toast your health.

I rather like

the Currawong.

 

And though it’s hard

to sing along,

 

It has a lovely,

lilting song

 

That makes things right

when they are wrong.

Girl Power Med Empire

Click pic to make big and bigger.

Girl evades giant Pac-Man.

Girl wins 300 metre dash.

Girl meets boy.

Girl starts BBQ fire.

Girl wins see-saw game.

Girl wins swimming competition.

What a fun, successful and totally empowering day!

Target audience.

God grant me

the serenity

to forgive people

I can change;

courage

to take out those

I cannot

and wisdom

to know the difference

at 1200 metres

in fading light

with a 10 km crosswind.

Bet

bank

on

this,

when

you

grabbed

my

attention.

 

 

Bitter lemon

I asked the grocer

why he was selling just

USA

lemons.

He said the sun had

fried all the flowers in

Queensland.

A melancholy

Eureka.

Alcohol’s a millstone

That drags you to the deep.

It poisons all your daytimes,

And Alptraums your sleep.

It steals ‘fun’ from your future,

Yet when it comes it’s gone.

And if you ever get there,

You’ll find that there is none.

Today is what you make it:

Thy Heaven, Earth or Hell.

But if you try to fake it,

It’s the most broken spell.

Let’s go bash

 

a horse about!

Dress up,

 

drink down

 

and bet

 

and shout.

And if

 

perchance

 

it falls down

 

dead,

 

forswear your

 

heart

 

and lose your

 

head.

Parentless husband.

And father to none.

No gift but the present.

The future undone.

Undertaker

gifts me a

branded

pen.

Lest

I

forget?

To write

dead

letters?

Or just for

next time.
