Messing Around with Boats

Row, row, row your boat Where it's never placid Scarily, scarily, scarily, scarily Life is like the rapids


When I am Dead, My Dearest

When I am dead, my dearest Write no sad posts for me Remove me from your friends list And wipe me from the ether Whether there are balloons or bears Abandoned and mildewing And if you want, remember And if you want, forget I shall not see the banalities I shall not miss any connection...

At the Beach.  Sunny. 

Milk-bottle white, lobster red Scantily clad, covered up Legionnaire hats Naked tots, entire family clad in bodysuits And the one family, always one, in heavy shoes, trousers and jumpers Just in case or taken by surprise? Sun cream: in blobs, by stripes There's no love like a mother with a wet wipe Two-year-old making a... Continue Reading →

The Day They Got it Right

I don't much trust weather forecasts, maybe because I am something of a sceptic when it comes to Science, it seems that Science has pretty much become the religion of the day with us mere mortals putting blind faith into the whims and translations and perspectives of Scientists.  I do not naturally go along with...
