  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Famous Last Words

    Wednesday, March 27, 2013 | A Poem/Artistic story

    I think part of me knew the second I saw him this would happen. it's not really anything he said or anything he did. it was the feeling that came along with him. and the crazy thing is, I don't know if I'm ever gonna feel that way again. but I don't know if I should. I knew his world moved too fast, and burned too bright. but I guess I just thought 'how can the devil be bringing you towards someo...

  • Sweet Child of Mine

    Friday, May 3, 2013 | A Poem/Artistic story

    she's got a smile that it seems to me, reminds me of childhood memories, where everything was as fresh as a bright blue sky. now and then when I see her face, she takes me away to that special place, and if I stare too long I'll probably break down and cry.
    sweet child of mine, sweet love of mine.
    she's got eyes of the bluest skies and if they fall with rain, id hate to look into those eyes and s...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Finding Heaven (Poem)

    Monday, October 27, 2014 | A Poem/Artistic story

    Finding Heaven beyond the Stars!
    In a Galaxy far, far away!
    Kids don't believe shit these days!
    Ruddy Priests who abused kids!
    Happiness needs to be bottled!
    Have the Government doesn't regulate it!
    The Lord is still my saviour!
    Proud to be Christian, but ashamed of our Churches!
    Rip it up and start again!
    Like what Edwyn Collins said in 1983!
    Back then the world was more free!
    Before Uncle Sam c...

  • If a house could talk...

    Tuesday, December 30, 2014 | A Poem/Artistic story

    As I sit in the house where I grew up, I think about the first time I was here. 
    Maybe I was nine or 10.
    I looked around it and thought it to be a pretty good house. 
    When my parents and the Realtor were out of site, I climbed through the rectangular hole that allows you to peer through the kitchen into the den. It was my usual circus stunt, doing kid-stuff for no reason I guess.

  • Have a Chelsea Morning Kind of Day

    Tuesday, February 24, 2015 | A Poem/Artistic story 
    I'm not a morning person. 
    Upon awakening I'm more like the old John Denver number, "Sometimes I Feel Like a Sad Song". Still, that doesn't keep me from imagining what a Chelsea morning must have been like. Or the feeling of that kind of day. 
    I recently rediscovered 70s legend Joni Mitchell. While surfin...
