Premium Member A Hop, Skip, And A Dance

Britainers have no idea of distance
Ontario to B.C. is just a hop, skip and a dance
About 3,000 miles
London to Aberdeen 450 miles
Holy crap, no chance to change your underpants

Of the elves have two blonde haired blue eyed
Princes who will one day reign
In the beautiful forest of Aberdeen.

Premium Member Forest Green
Lovely are the woods of Aberdeen,
With many a grassy hill and sudden ravine,
Far beyond the most recent care,
Where the ruby sun doesn't dare.

Color as rich as soft velvet,
Deep green now and deeper yet.
Dense and dark and coolly calm,
Heart's serenity, nature's...Read More

Short Ribs G: A Gaelic Fashion Statement
A giraffe who was new
At the Aberdeen Zoo
Heard a bagpipe askirling one day.
He tracked down the player
And offered to pay her
If she kindly would teach him to play.
He gazed at the piper,
A Hebrides viper,
As she uncoiled and let out a...Read More

The ballad of James Skene
His name was James Skene
He came from Aberdeen
Sent down to Edinburgh to die,
The brother of the Laird
Land and power shared
Everything that Scotland could supply.

But inward treasure captured mind and heart
The noose won't drag him and God apart,

So death where is...Read More

My Abuser Raves
It was a small school community, 
Close and cliquish, but a special one,
For physically disabled people, kids,
And so sometimes it was fun.

But we were paired informally, by the school’s ethos done,  
For those serious friendship conversations;
About disability and our...Read More

The Jester and DeLilah
The jester made a gesture
To the queen of Aberdeen
A soulful crave
A willing knave 
His passion could be seen

DeLilah Grace McGahee
She wears the wounds of war
Her heart she gave
A love to save
And offers up no more

Premium Member Chambermaid With Ravens
The Aberdeen bus arrives, deposits and boards
the same people daily. One is the dark-haired
chambermaid at the tourist lodge, awkward
in her print dress and wearing a scowl. Her
breasts look soft although her legs are
not perfect.

Skyline of rowed houses
Rolls past and
So do the greys of labour, 
Conservative and otherwise
Are boarded on the decks of
Oil tankers; hollow
Hulking HMS something
Sleeps in the docks
Of the town once red
Now muddy brown
And sick, 
Labour wise and 
Reading Caledonia.

After the Kiss
Tension so thick
All started by a kiss

Eyes lock
Bodies in shock

Moves closer
Gently caress your shoulder

Eyes Lock
Bodies in shock

Breaths heavy
Hands mold your body while you let me

Eyes lock
Bodies in shock

Controls your desires
Whispers in your ear hot fantasies as they leave my mouth...Read More

Dusty streets lined with trees 
and dry water channels
petrified veins in the scorching sun

The large stately homes
hinting at a more favourable era
Shells of buildings filled with 
memories of farmers’ markets 
and ghosts of Jewish pedlars

Monuments of rubble and decay
to drunken...Read More

The white tower reaches for the heavens
a lighthouse in a motionless sea of grey

Beckoning the road-weary traveller
like a palm tree at a desert oasis

While an ominous fence of black spears
keeps the unwanted at bay

Nightmares on Halloween part Two
As it was when we have left,
Not from the very begining,
As this is Halloween,
Or the Night of Samhain.

Where the horror unfolds,
Of this tale of four lost souls,
Trapped in a forbidden place,
Where once terror and 
bloodlust reigns.

As we were frighten to...Read More

Rhyniognatha hirsti
Four hundred and eight million years or more
ago, these mandibled arthropods were alive
left years to languish in the fossil drawer,
unearthed again, just crushed remains survive.

These natives of what would be Aberdeen,
by nearly thirty million years, predate
the oldest bugs that anyone...Read More

A confused grin, with brazen abandon.

Like the ones in his dream of Aberdeen
With the color of deepest red and in bloom
Silently awaiting her eternal groom

I saw in her green eyes a tinge of sorrow
Seeing her groom ailing...Read More
