Losing Face

There’s something quite incendiary
About some folks I find
For push their button, yank their chain
And they reveal their mind

And with predictability
They bid as they are called
Reacting to the stimulus
In ways that let them fall

Fall prey to their conditioning
In ways like Pavlov’s dog
As each time they cannot resist
And end up in a bog

They always tumble in head first
With mouth a-gape; so wide
Or maybe with feet first again
To lose all face and pride

And then all full of bombast they
Exude just who they are
Least not for sure the smartest sorts
Of cookie in the jar

Lincoln Minster

Vestibule of Lincoln’s crown
Set high upon the hill
Still reaching out cross the shire
In awe and wonder still

Set out against the clear blue sky
The Minster’s mission proud
To welcome, greet with open heart
To beckon all aloud

And through the years it’s stood transfixed
In garb of mighty stone
A church, icon, community
Alive and not alone

Rethread Our Heads

Lets rethread our heads
Unwind our minds
Through neural corridors
Potentially with active might
Synaptic strength and more
Controlling what we think and do
Project or indeed say
The way we rock to innervate
Our outcomes every day

Hello To A New Week

Hello to a new week
What do you have in store?
What fun and games are up your sleeve?
What tricks perhaps and more?

For let’s hope that you’ll bring happiness
Let’s hope that you’ll bring grace
But most of all let’s hope you’ll bring
Friday at a quick pace!

Autumn Hysteria

Let’s cue autumn hysteria
It happens every year
Not in the sense that leaves drop gold
Or hops are making beer
But on a scale enormous
The worse that there has been
By far the biggest threat to man
For spiders have been seen
Invading every household
Intent one must presume
Of eating its inhabitants
The kids perhaps consume
But most devouring sanity
By stealth; weapon of fright
Arachnid armies on the move
And nightmares night on night!

An Ironic Sunday Haiku :)

A day to sleep in
On Sunday; the day of rest
Church bells wake me up!

English: Church Bells

 

Conscience

When will he hear his conscience?
The little thing that speaks
To keep him on a straighter path
And his behaviour tweak?

The guide that hides deep in him
That whispers through the years
That tells him what is right and wrong
When will he stop and hear?

And listen once again to it
This voice that lies within
To really, stop, appreciate
His conscience through the din

When will he pay attention to
All that it has to say
To cease his hell bent lifestyle
And open up one day

To reckon with this narrative
That guides and aids his heart
To cherish what is good in life
Before he falls apart

His conscience; his persuader
The plumb line on his soul
When will he stop and notice
And once again be whole?
