Industrial Ghosts

image

Chimneys smoking across the steel city
Where industrial ghosts of the past
Spiral heavenwards
In plumes from the remnant furnaces
Lingering in the ether
Smelting past memories
Smarting the landscape
Haunting the skyline
In whispers; in echoes of a bygone era

WOW!

Magnetic, resonating
Addictive, infectious gusto
Penetrating every bone
Seeping into every nook and cranny
Fervently eager
Passionately zealous
Abundant and energetic
Inspired, creative
Exciting!
Galvanizing the heart,
The mind
The spirit
With enthusiastic enthusiasm
WOW!

Revision

Swot and study
Memorise
Constant going
To get wise
Or is that worn out
Who just knows?
Learning facts
And writing prose
Mind maps, post-sticks
Notes on wall
Books of jottings
Getting full
Cramming! Stuffing
Will it stay?
We’ll just see
On exam day!

Revision

To All School Leavers

And so to all who leave today
Fly from the nest that’s school
Go forth resolved to grab the cup
Of options and the tools
That you have gained these years now gone
The lessons you have learned
Inspired to contribute; enjoy
Where work and play’s concerned

With goodness, grace, integrity
Go onwards with respect
Responsibility and care
Determined to prospect
A future that exceeds your dreams
One where you shine with might
A future that you’re proud to own
A future that is bright

Psychodynamics

What hides beneath that wretched skin
Sewn in unconscious thread
Affecting heart and mind and soul
That weighs heavy as lead

What conflict duels within unseen
N’er to see light of day
Stirring the bowel of discontent
In subjective array

What means are employed to relieve
The angst from such a fight
Defending mind from warring mire
Yet always out of sight

What veil, what fog, what miasma
Plays out subliminally
Within the core of every one
Within humanity?

Goodie Two Shoes

Don’t be a goodie two shoes
Who gets on people’s wicks
All prissy and so perfect which
In essence makes us sick
But be true to your own self
For that is just ok
No pretence and no masking
Of who you are each day

 

The Sky Is On Fire

The sky is on fire
Burning the embers of the day
Into the oblivion of night
With a wild ferocity
Blazing in the heavens
With the passion of hell
As a sea of flames combusts
To herald in another glorious morrow

The Sky Is On Fire
