Oh dear O Deer
You’re in a rut
This time of year
No ifs, no butt.

Your future lies
In chasing out
The other guy
And his great snout.

He’s had a smell
Of Mistress Doe
“Yes, all is well
She’s good to go!”

So raise your chine
Let it be clear
“This lady’s mine
That buck stops here”.



A clear conscience is the sign of a fuzzy memory.

To bomb or not
The question is
Should we now plot
The end of Iz?

‘Aye Ess’ you say
The proper name
Isis? Okay,
Is all the same.

Tom Cat, Hell Fire
Some shock, some Awe
Our guns for hire
An ass’s jaw.

But Wait, just Stay,
Men in their prime
Will surely say
‘Peace in our Time..’

The rain, the rain
It does pour down
'Pon land and Main
And 'pon the town.

It waits to flow
Into the seas
But yet still grows
Beyond our knees.

Yon banks and brae
Are not enough
To hold and stay
That liquid stuff.

So build those banks
And lakes and tarns
To keep the floods
Back from our barns.

Twenty-fifteen
Is nearly done.
How's Christmas been?
Have you had fun?

The guests are gone;
The gifts are sent.
The lights are on,
The candles spent.

December speeds
Towards its close;
Santa recedes
And homeward goes.

Let's now abstain
From wine and beer,
But drink again
Come the new year.

Wherewith did he
Get down my lum?
That Santa C
With giant bum.

Methinks he keeps
A Master key
And while we sleeps
Through doors comes he.

He fills our socks
Then off he goes
His kindness mocks
Hard-hearted foes

Oh I can't wait
Until New Year
To eat his cake
And drink his beer.

Twenty sixteen
Has just begun
Twenty fifteen
Was lots of fun.

On yes it was
I kid you not
I didn't pause
But laughed a lot.

I laughed out loud
When my MP
Said he'd be proud
To stand for me.

I'd heard it all
You see, before
Just vote for Paul,
I'll get you more.

Amid the strife
The air is tense,
And public life
Makes little sense.

Our leaders spurn
Us common folk,
Who in our turn
Deem them a joke.

Electors dump
The ruling caste,
And Donald Trump
Orates full-blast.

The Brits reject
The dire EU,
And I expect
The French would too.

But though this scene
May make us curse,
1916
Was far, far worse.

This is the age
Of dumbing-down.
Out goes the sage;
In comes the clown.

From west to east
The people vote
For some plain beast
Who can emote.

Impassioned moans
Get more respect
Than measured tones
And intellect.

Crude demagogues,
Devoid of shame,
Give monologues
Replete with blame.

They call for throngs
To storm the streets,
To right the wrongs
Of smug elites.

And when their nostrums
Produce a crash,
They'll quit the rostrums
With tons of cash.

Now Trump has sway,
I'm not surprised
The USA
Is polarized.

Conservatives
Are heard to cheer;
The left wing gives
A hint of fear.

Will he be proved
The people's saviour,
Or be removed
For bad behaviour?

This drama's plot
Daily unfolds;
I wonder what
The future holds.

Wednesday August 9th

It's rained all day
In London town.
The skies are grey;
I'm feeling down.


The daylight fades;
The twilit scene
Brings rueful shades
To life's routine.


All gloomy-bright,
The streets reflect
The random light
That they detect.


May joy intrude
While summer lasts,
And lift my mood
Ere autumn's blasts!
