  • The Prosperity Plane

    Wednesday, October 22, 2014 | A Poem/Artistic story

    (Based on 'The Freedom Train' by Langston Hughes)
    I heard on the TV about the Prosperity Plane!
    I read in the papers about the Prosperity Plane!
    I searched on the Internet for the Prosperity Plane!
    Lord, I've been waiting for that Prosperity Place!
    Belfast, Dublin, Amsterdam, Berlin!
    Way across Europe!
    Over to Central Asia!
    Lord, over in Britain the only planes I see!
    Have Economy Class seats wai...

  • The Sidewalk of Life - Portia Nelson

    Wednesday, June 4, 2014 | A Poem/Artistic story

    Chapter One
    I walk down the street.
    There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
    I fall in.
    I am lost .... I am helpless.
    It isn't my fault.
    It takes forever to find a way out. Chapter Two
    I walk down the street.
    There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
    I pretend that I don't see it.
    I fall in again.
    I can't believe I am in this same place.
    But, it isn't my fault.
    It still takes a long time to get out. Ch...

  • Writer's Block

    Thursday, December 13, 2012 | A Poem/Artistic story

    Father forgive me, for I know not what to write!
    All my anger can't be expressed!
    My issues are all coming home to roost for me!
    But my inhibitions lave me repressed!
    Thank Crunchie it's Friday!
    But it just isn't my day!
    I have gone insane over an 8 digit code!
    What the hell's wrong with me?
    I have lost my umph!
    My Lulu publication just didn't sell!
    I feel depressed and melancholic this Christmas...

  • The Madness of today

    Friday, October 26, 2012 | A Poem/Artistic story

    This is madness, said the Persian to the Spartan.
    The Specials said the same thing 34 Years ago.
    Today, I was a right lazy so-and-so.
    My Gran has 'Lock, Stock and Two smoking Barrels' on TV.
    She'll watch anything.
    She wanted to have RTE One on, but found the Playboy Channel.
    Thank God I hadn't subscribed to it.
    Didn't wake up until 12:40.
    Had to take my Brother to Dungannon Tech.
    Then to Cookstow...

  • Crystal Meth

    Friday, July 11, 2014 | A Poem/Artistic story

    CRYSTAL METH
    Walking from here to there getting nowhere
    Walking backwards through your dreams; ending up somewhere
    Remember the addict in the attic
    Play the game insane bang the cane
    Crystal meth its in your brain
    Throughout your body there pain in my vein
    Good to blow the junkie snow
    Its always there so here we go
    We don’t slow down for slammed back kix never stop
    Until we fix what was sh...

  • Setting Aside The Past

    Friday, July 11, 2014 | A Poem/Artistic story

    SETTING ASIDE THE PAST
    Crumbling the sun in the palms of my hands,
    Watching the source of my days grow shorter by the second.
    Shaking, devastated in fear,
    Following the same path seen many time before.
    From head to toe, soaked in cold sweat.
    Quickly setting aside the past.
    Preparing myself for coming of the day.
    Saying goodbye to the last,
    That’s all I have to say.
    Blisters on me feet, sunb...

    Friday, July 11, 2014 | A Poem/Artistic story

    I have about 150ish poems 5 of which are published in table top books and vairous poetry sites.   thought I would share a couple.
    WORLD OF COLORS
    I want so much
    To have nothing to touch
    I’ve always been greedy that way
    Being alive and being free
    Meant everything in this world today
    I came with nothing…
    And I shall leave the same
    Everything in this world was here to share

    Wednesday, January 30, 2013 | A Poem/Artistic story

    emptiness
    the elephant in the room
    dramatically stomping
    everything with
    black blank
    eyes
    frantic movements avoiding
    reality
    and really you can't blame it
    at all
    caged creatures rarely
    realize the confines in which
    they confide
    one shot and it's over, one
    drink
    fuck
    cut
    never solved the
    love you lacked
    from birth
    for yourself
