Tom

Oh Tom – he was a liar, a conman and a thief
Who thought he’d blag his way through life
Thought he was the big chief
And as such he conceived himself
Untouchable it’s true
But all along the lies built up
Until they came in view

They caught him out; exposed him
Showed him for who he was
A scoundrel and a vagabond
Addicted to the buzz
Of hurting those around him
Not stepping to the mark
Of truth; responsibility
An ogre of the dark

For you see Tom met his maker
A grizzly end they say
Tripped up by all his lies and fibs
The trappings in his way
And beaten at his own game
He then threw in the towel
Lost everything but that is what
Happens when one plays foul!

Big Hair

There’s something ’bout big hair
That you really have to see
Like birds a-nesting in these wigs
All sat so tranquilly

Along with bugs and ladybirds
They all just bed right in
Amidst the curls and thick thick mop
Now isn’t that win:win

…..or maybe not! ;)

Telecommunications

Oh where did Buzby go
That little bird who flew
With voices cross telephone lines
All dressed in yellow hue
Who understood and helped
And served the public well
Assisting with a happy tweet
In a service that was swell

But now those days are gone
The bird’s been laid to rest
Instead replaced with robots and
Computers that all test
The patience of the saints
With call centres insane
That fail to comprehend; assist
And really are a pain!

So come back Buzby please
And fly our wires once more
With better public services
Than these we now implore!
And grab the gauntlet do
To try and sort the mess
With lines that operate and work
And customers less stressed!

Just A Thought …

Each day I am determined
To write a little ditty
A poem or some prose
That rhymes or … maybe doesn’t
An etching from my soul
My heart or from my mind
That help me understand the world
And fathom out mankind

And from the blue the topics
Just pop into my head
Whether I am feeling great
Or even just half dead
And where they come from is
A mystery for sure
But every day I jot down thoughts
To perceive more and more

So if they touch your soul
Uplift you; make you glad
Then that’s my job accomplished
Though sometimes they’ll be sad
And make you think or ponder
Or maybe question too
Is this the world we live in?
Whatever can I do?

But then that’s not a problem
When we challenge our mind’s mode
For good and bad and ugly
Form this world that’s our abode
So equally I hope it helps
When writing from the heart
To prompt us all to celebrate
The good or play our part!

Chaos

A state of sheer confusion
Lacking order; disarray
Confudlement and clutter
A jumbled kind of way

Turmoil and a maelstrom
Deranged untidiness
Now time to clear this hodgepodge
And sort out all this mess!

Sunrise

An early start and bleary eyes
But there behold and see
A marvellous sunrise on the hill
So magnificently
Oozing watered reds and pink
Across the dappled sky
In panoramic view behold
A vision there up high
And thus infuse the day with charm
Despite the threat of rain
As Heavens glory lifts the mind
Like nature’s own cocaine

Intolerant Society

Intolerant society
That always fails to see
The other side of the coin
That’s focussed on the “me”
That can’t perceive another’s thoughts
Or think another way
That has a mind-set that is fixed
That can’t see light of day

Intolerant society
Where is altitude view?
Blinded to perceptual vision
Failing to see the “you”
Where anything that’s different
Just simply can’t be right
Regarded so suspiciously
And laced in fearful sight

Intolerant society
A shameful place to be
A place that stands injustice;
Shunning diversity
A place where there will not be peace
Until the question’s asked
“How might that be, if in their shoes?”
Are you up to that task?

Intolerance
