Conundrum

CONUNDRUM

We wish for stillness
No echoes, no ripples but
Wishes are thoughts too

The Other Shore

THE OTHER SHORE

I look forward to
Laughing together, planning
Our next adventure

Wisdom Of The Ages

“You have to grow up!”
“Never,” I cried, and laughing
Watched myself decay.

You’re Havin’ A Laugh – A Villanelle

YOU’RE HAVIN’ A LAUGH

So you think it’s easy? Bloody hell!
This challenge went out (sadly, no money)
to squeeze some humour from a villanelle.

Why not have a go? It’ll soon begin to gel.
You’ve always liked being funny,
so you think it’s easy. Bloody hell!

This nonchalance is bogus; Can’t you tell?
I s’pose I could try for something punny,
to squeeze some humour from a villanelle.

It’s thinking cap on; thoughts rush about pell-mell
like some amphetamine-fuelled Easter Bunny.
So you think it’s easy? Bloody hell!

But you just can’t fail with a personal smell
and the heat of an Australian outback dunny
to squeeze some humour from a villanelle.

It may not exactly be Dylan Thomas, but well …
I’ll get there. Pass the bottle, my honey.
So you think it’s easy – Bloody hell! –
to squeeze some humour from a villanelle?

SAMURAI HEE HAW

John scribbles, Bill smears
Marc and Peter fine dice time
A feast for the ears

Two Tribes

TWO TRIBES

Two tribes on this planet hand to hand
Two questions: how and when (if ever)
Shall we convert this armoured nightmare
This fortified dungeon run on greed and fear
By its bastard sons, rampaging ironclad
Roughshod from poverty to exorbitance
To a life built on sharing, love and laughter?
As above, so below; as within, so without
And the starting pistol is here at hand
