Puppet Master

Expression of ideas with a sock
The puppet master shows part of his skill
We listen, he makes the characters talk

Imagination the key to the lock
We're somewhat surprised he gives us a thrill
Expression of ideas with a sock

They say you have to crawl before you walk
I guess this is the way he pays his bills
We listen, he makes the characters talk

He opens up doors with a subtle knock
With story telling he gives us our fill
Expression of ideas with a sock

There is so much laughter mixed with some shock
Lost in the excitement staying real still
We listen, he makes the characters talk

The puppet master he really does rock
He controls the strings we go where he wills
Expression of ideas with a sock
We listen, he makes the characters talk

TV Ads

There's nothing like a TV ad.
A crass intrusion to a play,
It shreds my nerves and makes me mad.

And some of them are really bad
The products too – they'll make you pay;
There's nothing like a TV ad.

The use of animals is sad :
Chimps “talking”, drinking tea all day !
It shreds my nerves and makes me mad.

But Russian meerkats make me glad,
To buy insurance ?  Well, I may –
There's nothing like a TV ad.

A bicycle pushed by a lad
Up cobbled street with brown loaf, aye,
It shreds my nerves and makes me mad.

And now I'll take a break, by gad,
A drink's the tonic, so they say,
There's nothing like a TV ad.
They shred my nerves and make me mad

Villanelle: Those whom the gods disdain bloat tough in hubris

Villanelle : Those whom the gods disdain bloat tough in hubris

Those whom the gods disdain bloat tough in hubris
Vesuvius sank isle strung duckweed in Mid-Sea
Tectonic plates clash Zeus’ curse sinks Atlantis 

Tough talk across Atlantic makes Olympus hiss
Triumphant magnate tandem with pale Yin on knee
Those whom the gods disdain bloat tough in hubris

No Plato to lament holy Lost Angeles
Split through Grand Canyon guts out at New Jersey
Tectonic plates clash Zeus’ curse sinks Atlantis

Meru’s father stomachs no campaign mudsling blitz :
« Stop the la-di-da now or I’ll make you float free ! »
Those whom the gods disdain bloat tough in hubris

« Let Minerva win or I’ll split Oval Office ! 
I’ll not say it again : You’ll lose Land of Free ! »
Tectonic plates clash Zeus’ curse sinks Atlantis

No curse worse than what shatters Olympus bliss
« Come to your senses now : Trump card will make you flee ! »
Those whom the gods disdain bloat tough in hubris
Tectonic plates clash Zeus’ curse sinks Atlantis

My Love Is

My love is constant as the clouds
That flit across the sky.
In sleep I call her name aloud

Though when awake I am too proud
To let her hear me cry.
My love is constant as the clouds

Her fertile valleys I have ploughed
And over them I fly.
In sleep I call her name aloud

Does her affection wear a shroud?
If so she won’t say why.
My love is constant as the clouds

She picked me from the madding crowd,
It’s her rules that apply.
In sleep I call her name aloud

With such sincerity avowed
Am I to be denied?
My love is constant as the clouds
In sleep I call her name aloud
