Governments

               Governments

Governments seem here to stay
With the public's money they waste away
On useless things that do the people no good
Get rid of governments I think we should.

We work and toil on our lands
While they take our money from our hands
A land of opportunity for some
A worker's work is never fun.

We try to build our homes to live
While governments drain us like a sieve
Debt they seem to pile up instead
With financial problems over our heads.

Our governments should look after us
Instead they treat us with disgust
Why do we have to put up with them
Those governments created by men.

The Olympic Medal

   The Olympic Medal

To be given a gold medal
You have to win the gold medal
To take drugs and cheat
Is winning without merit
To dishonour the olympics
Is to dishonour Yourself.

The Automobile Mechanic

           The Automobile Mechanic

The automobile mechanic was originally
a car owner who carried out his own repairs
during the turn of the 19th Century.
These days, it is a person who endeavours to fix
the car problems of the everyday motorist
he is part engineer, detective, and miracle worker
all rolled into one, when the motorist expects their car
virtually fixed at a moment's notice.
He is truly a modern day unsung hero to most
who keep their car in tip top condition
although the mechanic seldom gets
the credit that he or she rightly deserves.

The Fairground

                          The Fairground
 
I remember the fairground when I was a child, there
was the candy Fairy Floss machines, and you could 
See them spinning the spider webs of sugar which 
Made up the sweet delight, that children loved to eat
Then There was Sideshow Alleys with its clown stall 
With the moving heads and popping the balls into it's 
Mouth, there was the shooting galleries and penny 
Toss events and many other things to play, there was a 
Ghost Train and the Dodgem Cars and Boats, where 
Bumping deliberately was not allowed, the Penny Arcade 
With Pinball games and the Claw Crane  where you tried 
To grab a prize If you where lucky, penny slots which 
Could give you a free ball and your penny back by flicking
A lever, and now the main events, the Big Dipper or
Roller Coaster, it would leave you going back for your
Stomach, the large Slippery Dips, Hall of Mirrors and
The Tunnel of Love river caves, Ferris Wheel and the
Helter Skelter where you rode down a spiral on a mat 
But the one thing that stands out in the Fairground 
Was the giant Carousel, a beautiful hand crafted 
Turntable loaded with beautifully crafted wooden
Horses, which where all hand painted, children would
Always want to ride this iconic ride and if you where
Able to grab the brass ring, you would get another
Ride absolutely free, yes the Fairground was an event
In itself, as children would always want to go there
All of the time and even the adults would ask  their
Children to go, because inside every adult lived 
Another little child, they all loved the Fairground.

Ode To A Policeman

                     Ode To A Policeman

The policeman is the strongest man in the world
As he can hold up all the traffic with just one hand
But there is a serious side to the policeman,
A protector of the innocent, a man who will risk his life
For anyone, no matter what walk of life,
Fearless of the ever present danger surrounding him,
He is often shunned by the public,
Underestimated by criminals and accused of corruption,
But is never given the credit he rightly deserves.
People should take a better view about this unsung hero
Of our times, the policeman.

The Magic Wand

               The Magic Wand
        
Magicians around the world rely on their
magic wand, it is their main tool in their
trade, it creates the illusion of making
magic believable, it has the ability to 
trick your senses into believing the 
magician, when he has your full attention
he works his magic and makes everyone
shocked in amazement, magic wands
are not always used by magicians as in
the storybook story of 'Cinderella' it was
used by the Fairy Godmother to change
'Cinderella' into a princess while turning
a pumpkin into a beautiful coach with
white horses to take Cinderella to the ball.
The magic wand is nothing more than a
painted stick of wood, but when painted it is 
transformed into a wonderful magic wand. 


Written : 13th July 2013
A simple story of a wooden stick that when 
painted becomes a magical tool for magicians 
and fairies in fairy stories.

City Of Ice

                              City Of Ice

The South Pole, is one of the coldest regions in the World
with all the snow and ice. In many places large caverns
and icy glaciers make this resemble another world. large Icicles 
hang down on many of these underground cavern ceilings
looking like an amazing city of ice. The extreme cold prevents  
anyone from living here creating an amazing sight to see.

The Riddle

                           The Riddle                  

What get's bigger the more you take away from it
This thing has no real substance, but we see plenty
Of these on Earth, they are often essential to everyone
But in reality they are a big nothing, so what am I
Really talking about, something that is not living 
Or dead, it exists because we make it so, a nothing
To most people and a must to others it is a hole.

Dreams And Nightmares

                     Dreams And Nightmares
 
When we go to sleep at night we usually have pleasant 
dreams of happiness were we feel like we are on cloud 9
with some romantic partner or some beautiful island
destination, we see wonderful things of beauty, but all
of a sudden the dream drifts to another world of gloom
transporting us to the nightmare world were dark
evil happenings take place, it makes our thoughts change
our bodies grows cold and sweaty and we awake in terror
 we have just experienced our worst fears out of the 
nightmare world, we get up in wonder of what has 
happened but later we find it is all but an illusion, 
a trick of the mind, maybe this can be caused by guilt
or even food that has not agreed with us, or our
minds may have been troubled by a bad problem. We
must all go to sleep with a clear mind and dream happy
thoughts or we will enter the nightmare world once again.

Are dreams and nightmares similar, be inspired and enlightened by what my poem has to say about the 'Dream World'

The Mighty Atom

                         The Mighty Atom
                             
In the early 1900's Madame Curie, discovered radium 
for the use in medicines, however through the years
this material was used for destructive purposes, when 
they split the atom in the 1940's in an atomic atom 
smasher. Scientists discovered  a new material called 
Uranium and coupled with Plutonium created a new
energy source which if not controlled properly could 
wipe out all life across the whole planet. Uranium was 
first used in a form of Hydrogen bomb, as  times moved 
on they created an even more destructive device called 
The Atom bomb. In time the atomic bomb was able to 
be dropped from an Air Force bomber, it even ended 
the war with Japan when dropped firstly on Nagasaki 
then later on Hiroshima. When this war ended the 
atom was used in the 1950's for atomic piles, which often 
were difficult to control using control rods for containment.
In later years the atom was used for atomic energy 
power stations for use in electricity, but was subject 
to out of control meltdowns, were uncontrollable 
radiation was scattered for hundreds of miles. After 
all of these pitfalls it is still considered by governments  
to be a safe alterative for clean energy even though 
it has the potential to destroy all life on Earth.
Everyone on this planet are living at risk of extinction
if this mighty atom was to run wild and out of control.
