Grim Reapers All

Mar 23, 2020

A few stragglers walk the streets Some avoid all they meet Whilst most stay in, safely locked away Others not listening to what government’s say The sun shines bright, Spring arrived Temptation to mingle, to feel alive But carriers all, potentially are we Grim Reapers all, death we take to thee We don’t learn, until […]

No Dance with the Devil Yet

Oct 19, 2016

This happened to me earlier this morning and it was a close call indeed. A yawn as I awake in darkness Thinking on the weekend ahead The city of Dreaming Spires A light to guide my week I mount my bike Peddle power keeping me fit The ride fresh as the sun rises Good to […]

Not one drop Did I miss Not one drop Did pass my lips Not one drop Of beautiful Guinness But one drop Wouldn’t go amiss… *Note: And yes, I am sure I have had a drink with this Squirrel at some point or three?

Prelude

The silent dawn greets tired souls Not a thing stirs out in the chill of dawn Rough sleepers snug tight in their sleeping bags No birdsong their alarm clock this morn Some up to prepare for Sundays roast Kitchens hot with their toil This a day of rest for many Whilst others work to pay […]

Reversal of Mind

Dec 5, 2015

We are born innocent Learning as we grow Right and wrong The in-between The line we all tow But do we ever learn Or is our state reversed? Decisions made Too late to change Or is it we ask But committed now are we In for a penny Gather the pounds But at what cost […]

Down in Brighton Town

Dec 5, 2015

Defiance
