Lament of the Garden Gnome

Sometimes I want it all to end The gloves are off I’ve had enough The dog’s my only friend… But he’s no good ’cause he pisses on my head Forever fear the moment that he raises his hind leg And lets fly with that acrid smelling stench his bladder vents One more unwanted shower and the dirty bugger’s dead I… Read more →

Steel Poppy

Forced in-two twisted land Try to break, slide from what’s the common strain They find it new ignore the talent, beauty, art Can not recognise what’s not seen, heard of to compare They will not can’t cut you down No matter how hard Don’t let them cut you down Child of dew, needless shame Will not show her hand, inside… Read more →

My New Shoes

Autumn leaves will fall and drift away Leave behind their place of youth Lonely tree is left with bark of grey Hibernating life in truth We see this world through a mono-focal lens Locked in the same tired old routine Why not this time look through the arched window Maybe we’ll find my new shoes Autumn leaf is swept by… Read more →
