Who Are We With Tonight




In this amazing world of digital
where change is at apace
beyond the scope of most of us
communications multi-place

Meeting up in face to face
though really not quite there 
as interface takes precedence
no longer here but where

There was a time when contact
looked for meanings in the eye
where sharing time was focussed
on the ground not in the sky

Time will come when voices shrink
the proletariat confined
like the myth of Samson’s haircut
snuffled by the binary bind



When  a text is the next big moment

Susan’s Cat




It seems to me you have it wrong
that I don’t understand
I’m just quietly considering
all possibilities at hand


Your presence has face value
though I never second guess
I’m checking on your inner strength
it’s the way that I assess

Inspiring 'Cat Picture' prompted this rhyme:

Friends (A Poem)




Just an ordinary day when two friends meet
yet that day is never forgotten as time passes

The road to friendship can be a slow walk
as beliefs persuasions and opinions are tested



Good friends are not afraid of differences

differences are signposts to a deeper knowledge
In friendship everything matters continually
in pursuit of balance harmony and blend



Though each will take turn in carrying the other

there is no drudgery in each other’s burden
Friendship has little need of demand or duty
for the spirit seeks only principle and integrity



The streets of life are a universe of choices

made much clearer in the company of friends

Nice Bristols












Hi you folks from way down there
Rodge and Bea the Bristol pair


So pleased that you will stay with us
chuffed to bits we love to fuss
 

A surprise for Joan is most sincere
the Bristol pair will bring much cheer
 

The weatherman say's lots of sun
August 18th a load of fun


To our good mates Beryl and Roger

Everybody’s Drinking



Everybody’s drinking water
fashion statements H2O
handing over loads of money
the store of dripping profits grow

chorus
Looking out in the shopping malls
water profits tightly squeeze
skipping over the notion
of thirst to ease


Everybody’s drinking water
thinking magic properties
drinking more than one guy oughta
they give much less for charities

chorus
Looking out in the shopping malls
water profits tightly squeeze
skipping over the notion
of thirst to ease



Harry Nilsson's version is quite good too

Train of Strain a Downright Bane










There’s something downright sinister
if by train you seek your way
they come and go whenever they please
travellers standing in dismay

Packed compressed like cattle herds
hushed in cramped despair
politicians have no driving force
should one ever think they care
 
The free for all scream give us some
we have this cunning plan
to screw to penalize to profiteer
the rolling stock tin can.

When Tomorrow Came to Stay

 


I’ll take the southern coastal road
catch the morning by surprise
find myself a pleasant place to be
where light is not so heavy on my eyes

I’ll try to do some clear head thinking

make my list of things to share
accept the lonely storm is passing by
rest easy in a town without despair

Walking streets of no predictions

Embrace a dawning atmosphere
In fresher freedom laundered clothing
Agenda’s now more visible and sincere

Facing my reality no longer chasing spells

taking special time for each consideration
out there in the early air counting every breath
as my heart beats like a rhythmic incantation
