  1. It is a sin to mock the dead. As we now stand beside deathbeds Mourning they have popped their clogs We morn their death in synagogues and churches up and down this land... Because going out was not banned Po
  2. Another victim Tearing though the sinues in my skull sucking all the air from my lungs Gasping for breath. I could feel my very soul departing with each exhalation Drowning in a vacuum of hopeless turbulence and despair. As I stepped out upon heavens stair. Nothing......
  3. Closed minds My hands reach out to touch you To break a binding spell That grips you oh! So tightly How far my friend you've fell So insidious and commanding, compelling you to obey Implanting words inside your mind, the things you're meant to say. Thinking these thoughts...
  4. Shine on Oh! Light of Silence How You resonate deeply within my soul my very being Lost in an eternity of incessant noise. I sense freedom at last Now like a crescendo from the Gods it bursts my limitations Shattering them into an infinitesimal smattering of smithereens far beyond...
  5. Don’t Cross The Line There is something wrong here, there is no denying So many of our youth, daily are dying Stabbed with a blade, with malicious intent Blead out on the ground, lay under our tent A blue and white tape, flaps in the breeze That cordons off a crime scene. There on their knees...
  6. Another day on the job At the end of the path, a broken door smashed shards of glass lay on the floor Cross the threshold, enter in another crime scene, let’s begin Walk the hall, climb the stairs the crime unfolds, hold back the tears ‘Must’ needs dispassion to fully comprehend precisely...
  7. Parts of me A tiny tear forms in my eye As you laugh, it makes me cry What’s in the tears that now you see? Broken fragment’s, parts of me. The candle too sheds a waxy tear As you turn and leave me standing here. Po
  8. Ahead of the game Determined to stay ahead of the game One has to remember, there is no one to blame When things begin, to go horribly wrong Instilled in my head is that repetitive song “Always look on the bright side of life… de dum - de dum - de dum - de dum - de - dum” Then the...
  9. Life could be likened to wandering a maze With each twist and turn there are new things to gaze Some are quite wonderful and fill you with awe Others you may wish, that you’d never saw Like the feeling we’ve come to another dead end But then when we look it’s simply a bend It may be, we...
  10. Little lost ant can’t find his way home As over the carpet and floor tiles he roams Amnesia overcomes him from a bump on the head As a crumb falls from the table from a giant loaf of bread Po
  11. A lonesome tear Many a candle has shed a lonesome tear At the sound of a quill, on the parchment of despair Only being witnessed by introspective surmise Sealed within his cranium, the poets reprise Po
  12. The music box As I am reading I am watching this old music box, I have just gently lifted the lid The ballerina is turning, the music is playing, however the clockwork mechanism is loudly clanking and the ballerina is crying tears of blood. On the inside of the lid is a mirror that shows an...
  13. It’s a numbers game Got out of bed jabbed my finger, no time lost, best not to linger Up flashed the number 5.4 I’m glad it is not any more I’m happy with that It must be said. Jumping in the shower then making the bed Making my brekkie ‘Weatabix’ and butter I hate um soggy. Now to clear...
  14. COME ON! The chameleon ran vertically, straight up the wall and disappeared though a crack infinitesimally small “Did you just see that”! The post man exclaimed “Their the masters of disguise”, I quickly explained Running across, peering through the small crack The post man kept...
  15. HYPO In that hypo’s long, sharp, silver, needle The fentanyl curse left me feeble With dragons coursing through my veins Oxygen depleted starving brain Just an empty husk, and to my shame Nought of me... Just death remains. Po
