Borderline Poster Child

Who am I, oh, who am I? Just a poser child Borderline? A series of bold contradictions Led on by doctors false predictions Diagnosing all the time... Angry outbursts fill the air, Throwing objects everywhere, They drug me up, because they're lazy It's too much work to help the crazy I hate the pills, but they don't care Take the drugs, and you'll feel better, We'll smoke some bud, and chill together But even if I smoked the weed Surely that's not all I need The lovely high won't last forever I get attatached to everyone, But when they get too close, I run So many arrows in my heart Cupid shoots, but then I part Not phased by all the wrong I've done So put me on more medication, I'll throw in some dedication, But even then it's not enough This emptiness is still too tough All that's left is contemplation

The Found Girl

Madeleine McCann, The Lost Girl
Imp with the ink-stain iris
Would've been 14 soon, the paper said
Would've been, I read
How heavy and final, the past tense

Dna blunders, false leads, dead ends
Her parents said that the police had let them down
Said she would never be found

But in Neverland
Madeleine McCann and her friend Peter Pan
Dance around a bonfire with wild tribes
Trick Captain Hook
And fly across an oyster moon

The Pancakes are ready to eat
My Granddaughter's help was so neat
The eggs she did crack 
The smiles did not lack
As eggshells were part of the treat

My 4 year old granddaughter helped me make breakfast this am, pancakes from scratch.  Lots of fun.

There's No Place Like Home

Once was a gal who felt so alone
Tornato came up rooted farms home
Landed on wicked  witch
Munchkins came out of ditch
Gave dog lollypops instead of bone

H is for Happy

H is for Happy, a tickled pink smiley
A jam on a pancake, made of strawberry
to start-up a day 
when you can just play
dress like a princess, and mom is the fairy.

H is for Happy, a birthday wish for you,
to feel in your heart, though everything is new
to laugh and then giggle
to dance and then jiggle
run, skip and wiggle like that day at the zoo.

New Life

Hiding in mummy's tummy, kicking happily away
 I'm kissing you warmly, clapping and singing in play
 They say in a few weeks
 I'll be able to kiss  your new cheeks
 I can't wait for the morning I'll lift you in a sway

There Goes Ethan

One day on the trampoline, my nephew, aiming for the tree,
overshot his leap and jumped as far as the eye can see.
If you squint hard enough
you'll see it in the buff;
a minuscule dot orbiting the galaxy!

NOTE: My nephew Ethan is one of those kids where it's not enough to say he's skinny (if he inhaled enough helium I wonder the possibilities of him floating away).

My granddaughter's name is Mahala
She plays with lots of great stamina
We run here and there
We play everywhere
Pretending to be a tarantula

A dull three - aka Adultery

Love lived in the hearts of Him and Her,
 But distance shrouded fear over Her
 And to punish Her reluctance
 He gave another girl a chance
 And she brought triplets nine months later.

A Child of Nine

When I was a child of nine
I thought I had all the time
Time to live and be happy
Time to fish with my pappy
But death had crossed the line

Little Susie had peed her new pants Such an unfortunate circumstance In front of her mother She blushed a red colour … Then invented the ‘Wet knickers’ dance! Mum's reaction to this was not cool As Sue pranced around like a fool To add to her woe More started to flow Down her leg and formed into a Pool Susie knew right away, she was Toast With her face turning pale as a ghost When the Cork in her ass Shot out with the gas And Mother got blasted the most Desperately needing a breath of fresh air We ran out of the house in a state of despair It is far from a joke To splutter and choke On a stench that melts noses and frizzles our hair In disgrace, she stomped off to the shed Where a cunning plan entered her head Her gas mask condition Needed stiff competition So she's joined a Bad Ass Commune instead Sue was accepted as one of the troupe After she curdled Cow’s milk into soup And once it was dark She thought it a lark To 'Blue Flame' her gas for the group In a national contest for which she was keen She entered to take on the best there has been But to Susie’s surprise They gave the Top Prize To a bloke farting 'God Save The Queen' 'Porton Down' is off limits so no one can see The 'Boffins' who work in white coats, secretly MI6 sniffed around And Susie was found Then Pressed into service as their new WMD Collaboration with Rob Bettridge

Nerd Dad

There once was a child with a rattle
Who liked to crawl among cattle.
Until its mom found out
And to her ex did shout,
You just lost your custody battle.

Spring Pogo Stick Tricks

There once was a boy with two sticks.
He bounced on both pogos; planned tricks.
One day he fell down
He laughed like a clown.
Then, sprung off; one foot on each stick.

Merry blue dressed Bob, the builder,
Please return my reddish toy rooster,
I’ll give you my toy elephant,
A bubbly grey buoyant infant,
He is a long nosy mister.

The summer of change

This summer, different from any other
I watched two girls to help out their mother
My kids, a job and a half
My family shared a good laugh
As my quiet time, they knew, would smother

As always, I refused to listen
Their clear, blue eyes would glisten
Accepting the challenge
A work load benge
Now that their gone, I find myself missing

Before long, I learned, it was me
I was right where God wanted me to be
I helped a friend
Meet her ends
Helping myself unknowingly

An angel, disguised as a ten year old
Oh at the scenarios that would unfold
A precious punk
With fiery spunk
In my heart, she quickly strolled

She taught me things, my aged eyes couldn't see
Imagination, excitement, to her, came easily
With every pinch
I budged an inch
Before long, I was on a fun living spree

True price of war

The mighty warlord shakes his fist and sends his troops to the abyss
Families broken and torn because of an oath that was sworn
Fathers and sons die in vain but no one can feel their pain
Mothers cry as their children are sent off to die
Innocent blood is shed, does no one care for these dead
Sadness grips the heart of man as many a persons blood stains the land
Cries from the public go unheard as the warlord shouts his mighty words
Kill them all he says, make these people pay
The screams of wounded go on through the night begging for the warlord to end the fight
No answer comes from his high up throne for his heart is cold as stone
Only a child dared to face him
He begged for his people 
His words so moved the warlord he again shook is fist this time calling his troops from
the abyss
Families are pieced back together after the mighty storm they have weathered
The child is proclaimed a hero
Sides that once wared against each other now call themselves brothers
Fields are resown and homes rebuilt, no longer does the warlord feel  guilt
But nothing can replace the loss of life for that is the true price of war

Lonesome Past

Growing up with my grandparents wasn’t so great,
Having to hold onto so much weight.
While my mother was “at school”,
And my father acting like a fool,
I only hoped someone could open the gates.

At some point my mother came back,
But there was something that I lack.
When I tried to let out my voice,
She saw it only as noise,
And in return she gave me a smack.

She forced me to move out of the house,
I was running around like a mouse.
Burning plant was used to let herself loose,
Alcohol was her form of abuse,
The pillows were quickly douse.

My father quickly came and picked me up,
However, I was still down in the dumps.
After the therapies and baker-act, 
I was still abstract.
Taking anti-depressants with water in a cup.

That’s when I began to write letters.
And slowly but surely I got much better,
It helped me let out stress,
Just as much as playing chess,
Happiness engulfed me like a sweater.

Now I have exceeded everyone’s expectations,
As they stop and stare at my creations.
They said I wouldn’t make it anywhere,
But now they’re the ones who glare.
A celebration across the nation.

Lullaby Music Box

Tender aged and very afraid of the dark,
Mom would comfort me with her soothing remarks,
night light bright,
still having fright,
she invested in a lullaby music box,

Lullaby lulls my grandson to sleep today,
helps him fall asleep after he prays,
the beautiful tune,
fills his bedroom,
feeling like Mom never went away.

First time a Parent

Smiling at fatherhood’s expected visitation
and responsibility’s challenging salutation
it came as a freebie
great joy to a newbie
turning back now, an absolute abomination.

Air Pollution

A lad of the ripe age of four
went with mom to the grocery store
as the youngster did scoot
he let out a toot
several customers ran for the door.

Next mom and lad went to the vet
along with their cute canine pet
they tried not to show
that the lad let one go
folks think it’s the dog, I’ll bet.

There was a boy named Billy
Many called him silly 
One morning he looked up to the roof
God, am I, really? Give me a proof
His faith was peeling

Visitation is Over

A onetime hit and unforeseen is this quick crack
a father some time ago in a sour flash back
oh where are life’s sentinels
standing against death’s colonels?
comforting hands, convert it not to a fair sack.

My Daughter at 17

Goes with the trend bravely but with half sight
ripe sexuality, her massive headlight
following growth so damp
every act gives a cramp
scaling through with my ancient words, she might.
