Could you stay alone when the crowd departs? Can you hold your ground when the trouble starts? Will you keep the faith in the dead of night? Would you play the villain to do what’s right?   When the road is long will you forge ahead? In the face of defeat will you keep your... Continue Reading →

The Noisy Voice

Fortunate voice to an audience held, Captive by a box of luminous spells, Around the image their evening dwells, An open door on the slopes of hell.   Authority’s voice assumed and accepted, All thought and search have long been neglected, The infallible ones cannot be corrected, Let your reason remain unaffected.   Emotional voice...

I had a fish, I called him Rolly, What his real name was, He never told me.   He sat on my lap, While I sang him songs, Then I’d throw him back in the water, Where he belonged.   He was blue and grey, With a yellow stripe, Kind of like Batman— The Adam... Continue Reading →

They Say

They say he is too old now, That he has lost his place, But still when someone meets him, You should see the look on their face.   They say he doesn’t matter, And anyone will do, But sleeping at night is not the same, As resting in what is true.   They say that... Continue Reading →

Blind Fire

The fire of youth, enraged and wild, The first steps out from the shaded child, Into the waiting jaws of men, That dying dreams may live again.   Minds are cradled, knives are drawn, Cutting a path for the blazing dawn, Journeys begun without a choice, Following after their master’s voice.   Shaped and formed,...

In his smile I see a love, I didn’t have to earn, Never given at a price, But rejoicing in return.   In her laugh I’m lifted up, Above my troubled view, She walks along a path carefree, And I should walk there too.   In his eyes I’m Superman, He thinks I do it... Continue Reading →


Sinking in the farthest reach of night, There, in a moment out of time, I slip away as my body sleeps, Lost in my mind.   Entering a realm beneath what’s known, Things familiar grow untamed, Faces gone return to view, Not quite the same.   Slipping from gravity’s weakened grasp, Horizons melt into the...

The Endless Marsh

Within a dark and endless marsh, A thousand knights were damned to march, Knee deep in festering mud, The price for spilling innocent blood.   Once an army, now divided, Each for his own glory minded, Broken ranks now strewn apart, And none can see the original path.   An armour suit each knight must...

Ode to a Pastrami Sandwich

Inventive twist on old roast beef, I set you now between my teeth. Sliced thick and pepper crusted, Wholemeal bread with a little mustard. And why not add a slice of cheese? Don’t mind if I do, make it Swiss please. They know their cheese, those Swiss folk, They make it so smooth and holey... Continue Reading →
