Revised version

PUTTING ON EMILY’S SHOES In the morning, when you rub your eyes, the door opens, and mummy calls… “Hurry, or we’ll be late!” Our jeep lies purring in the driveway. You sit above me on the stairs, Your brown hair, straight down your sides, You look at me, without a whisper, Waiting for something, eating […]

Methinks I must protest

Hi Janet, I understand what you mean about letting mum move the furniture round every day. It doesn’t hurt anyone, although it can get a bit exasperating. She often leaves things all over the floor which she could trip-up on, and she sometimes spills things which leave a sticky mess. My mum always liked to […]

Brighter than the day

There is a time, when we must rise, From darkness, pain and wrath, When we are stumbling on our knees, And black is but the cloth. When children pray, And old men say, That life is just too bad… Should I eclipse the Sun and Moon, The stars by which we live, Should I be […]

Budgen’s baloney

Went into the bad supermarket  for a stamp today.  Libby was getting shagged round the back.  One of the staff rushed up to me: “You’re banned!  You know you are” ?

Mr President. This is Andy Gallagher in England. The best way to deal with this is by showing magnanimity and generosity towards the apparent Victor. Apologise for the jokes you made about him and give him credit where it is due, even though the use of postal ballots is very much open to scrutiny. Be […]

Joe Biden’s teeth

Paid for by the poor and downtrodden…

Posted in First Contact | Comments closed


‘Well done Mike Pence! In tonight’s Vice Presidential debate you were great. Calm, composed and honest, in your defence of the President. The Interviewer handled this a lot better than the last one. Joe Biden’s running mate over-ran herself, and also spoke back to you. She was unable to defend her record, because she did […]

Good things about slavery

Just so you know

I keep seeing you around town Colin, don’t I.  How long ago is it now, that you turned up to my Writer’s group… In case you’ve heard a few mistruths from people down at the church, who in my opinion, are some of the worse gossips in town. I’m not sure if you read my […]

What makes a wizard?

Spoke to Julie down at the Centre today.  I spoke as loudly as I could so everyone could hear.  They were already watching for me through the front window.  While I was there simultaneous members of staff came round behind me to have a shifty.  Then, just as I was leaving the thick bugger security […]

There’s nothing wrong with Brexit

In the distant Referendum the country clearly voted to get out of the tyranny of the European club and take back control of our own borders.   People understood that this would mean a free trade agreement with the rest of the world without France and Germany dictating how we should live.  To be punished for […]

The sudden death of Andrew Harper

Is being called murder… Since we can’t believe the police, who lie all the time, and we can’t believe everything broadcast by the media, especially when it comes from the Establishment, who can we believe?  Certainly not the Authorities.  Has anyone ever asked themselves why we can’t hear a version of the truth from the […]

No title

Hödr stood outside the ring of men, because he was blind. Then spake Loki to him: ‘Why dost thou not shoot at Baldr?’ He answered: ‘Because I see not where Baldr is; and for this also, that I am weaponless.’ Then said Loki: ‘Do thou also after the manner of other men, and show Baldr […]

The Good old days

I remember my Aunty Betty getting lippy with my Grandad in the nineteen-fifties. She had been out until ten o’clock at night and was just sixteen years of age. They began arguing near the bottom of the stairs. He took hold of her, led her into the kitchen and put her over his knee. Then […]

The cards from Prue, With pictures from her gallery, And Pam’s letters, Rich in scenes from her family. Roger’s large and erudite hand, Scrawled across the page, His loving nature revealed, For the very first time. And Leo’s inspiring words, Giving me the will to survive, The injustice of this prison cell, All the way […]

Love poem

Fifty years from now Will you still remember me, Fifty years from now, On Marriot’s Way, On our journey from the town. Hand in hand we walked, Under the bramble bush, With the skylarks singing, And the rabbits on the path. The boy who passed us on his bike, The group of teenagers under the […]

Lost all my food

It was scorching hot here in Norfolk yesterday, so mum turned off my fridge to see if all the food would go off.

In your garden

Reaching out for Vivienne For about two years I watched you in the garden. Blue jeans, wavy golden hair. Small I thought. Quite petite. Your husband had a dark beard and looked like a wrestler. Then you were all by yourself. From my window, behind my lace curtains I continued to watch. That’s when I […]

Where the Sun don’t shine

You can take your boxes, your terms of approval, your fake smiles and your labels. You can take your recognition, your incontinence pads, and your tributes. You can take your Turner prize, your Green shield stamps and your remuneration. Your houses, your sports cars and your women. You can take your Sunday suits, your bow […]

Had a bit of a flare-up twice today with Chris; about human nature. The first was on Marriot’s way: I told her it was human nature to fight and control, to seek power. Chris told me that she ‘wasn’t like that!’ “But I’m not talking about you!” (I get sick of having to repeat things […]
