On A Brighter Note …

ON A BRIGHTER NOTE …

You are being
lied to and
indoctrinated
day after day.

Being expected
to conform to
unquestionable
empty rituals.

But at least
on a brighter note
there isn’t
a deadly virus.

That’s A Relief Then

THAT’S A RELIEF THEN (One for Charles)

There
Is
Nothing

Wrong
With
Humanity

Genocide
Wouldn’t
Fix

Fortunately
They
Are

Working
On
It

Plandemic: Scam Panic

PLANDEMIC SCAM PANIC

We don’t want
To end up, do we?

Like the blind man
In the dark room

Looking for
The black cat

…….
That isn’t there

Not To Offend: Shadorma

NOT TO OFFEND

A writer
Learns over the years
When someone
Says it’s “deep”
It’s “incomprehensible”
(They’re being polite)

End Of The Line

END OF THE LINE

Caution for hopes may easily
Expand themselves interminably
And without astute management
Arrive at that terminal station
Known as disappointment

A Gift From Heaven

A GIFT FROM HEAVEN

Walking
With loved ones
Or close friends
And talking

Sometimes you don’t
Need anything more
Beautiful surroundings
An added bonus

A gift from Heaven

It’s The Wine Talking

IT’S THE WINE TALKING

The scum rises to the top
The dregs sink to the bottom
I’d point this out more pointedly
But my mum always said
It’s rude to stir (or point)

She also said
There are three things you should never discuss
Politics, sex and religion
Unfortunately
Nothing else has ever interested me much

Except
Of course

Writing

… She’d be appalled

Fellow Travellers: Shadorma

FELLOW TRAVELLERS

We’re always
Travelling alone
Companions
Merely serve
To distract us from what is
Inescapable

Three Steps To Love

THREE STEPS TO LOVE

One: I think
I love you.

Two: I learn
to love myself.

Three: I know
we are one.

Next On The Agenda

NEXT ON THE AGENDA

Perhaps sometimes it’s not
About you trying to connect
With another but about you
Waiting patiently for them
To try to connect with you
