Premium Member Russian Folk Dancing

Russian dance groups blow me out of the water
Their synchronized patterns are amazing for every watcher
None out of line
Bang on every time
What dya think, maybe I too could be a dancer

The Right Feel of Wrong
When we are wrong (this might be trite),
the way we feel is watertight.
So what’s the deal?
How does it feel?
It feels bang on like being right....Read More

I’m a beautiful angel like you’ll see on a tree
My snow globe plays a carol it is so Christmasy

I bang on the casing and I scream and I shout

Dictionaries describe “fossil” as a cranky old person
Not flattering but it's bang on, not a very nice version
It doesn't apply to me
I'm as sweet as can be
Fillies flock around till I'm forced to charge a fee

Premium Member First Day of September
He has cold, grey, crisply creased trousers,
a shirt stitched with a blah motto 
and a bang-on-brand sweater.
A fixed smile almost lights
his small, pensive face.
The school bell rings.
Tears chase me.
He turns.

In the UK, school starts back from summer break in the...Read More

Watery eyed thoughts came,
Zap! Pow!  a short circuited brain.
Inward turned burned ocular pain,
too many thoughts to restrain 
I’m a cheap sheep making my mistakes again.
Smell my seared wool going down the drain.

Is it hot in here

I`m a physical, mental wreck, waiting for a beard
I have no sense of time, I`m definitely weird.
I`m peri-menopausal, go from blazing hot to cold,
I have wrinkles, bags, am fat, and very very old.
I sometimes find my...Read More

Act 2. A dark, empty stage.

It's all a blur. It’s all a little dizzy. 
I just have dreamed a scary dream as if 
two vagabond philosophers robbed me
and killed. I must admit it's a bit strange:

My life is fairy-tale, magnificent and fantastical because you’re hiting in it.
Every nightfall, I think of you before bed with the hopes of having you in my thoughts.
I bang on the entrances of your heart, just to make sure that...Read More

Cursed is a word that's sometimes bandied about
But in this case, it's bang on, there's absolutely no doubt
A car so possessed
Causing continued distress
Giving it away finally ended the enormous big ouch

Premium Member Things To Do Before I'm Forty Two
I wrote a list of things to do - 
To do before I’m forty two.

Jump in puddles - tee hee hee!
Eat jam butties for my tea,
Find myself the world’s best stick,
Trampoline until I’m sick,
Then climb up high and loudly sing:

The berger at the church gate
The Berger at the church door
he always lies at 
the door gate in 
of the church
every one walks
pass him 
some with kindness
some ignore 
even the big rich man
who gave the biggest 
church offering
ignores him 
what a world

Male Space
The study all alone,
in the corner of the home,
where a man can think,
reflect and have a drink,
be free of charging kids,
of daily cares be rid,
read what ancients say,
this is a male space.

In the wood with a gun,
tracking deer that run,
putting...Read More

Looking back on those years...
Everything was fragmented.
Everything was made by nightmare.
I got a lot of questions to ask,
But there were no answers found.
My life was a missing puzzle.
Trying to solve it every day.

Bang on with the person you're close to

Live the greatest misery of your life


let no one know the mystery with that blunt knife

That fashion style's come round again
for everywhere one sees
the young 'uns in their denim jeans
with rips across the knees.
Some sporting just a single slash,
others have two or more,
it must help ventilate their gait
don't know what else they're for.

Ray Gridley has a possible diagnosis
Alas, rabbits do catch viral myxomatosis
Since Jan's is a famous banging bunny
Who stays far from field and ANY honey
Energizer Bunny will bang on till unconscious!

My granda went away to sea
For many months on end
He'd travel on a fishing boat
With his brother and a friend

He used to write home regularly
And tell some quite tall tales
About being in a far-away place
When he was actually in...Read More

In Nashville
In Nashville, every bar is filled
With music and with booze.
The patrons fill the tip jars
Of whichever bands they choose.

The past four days we joined them,
Hearing songs and drinking beer,
But now we’re back at home
In our familiar atmosphere.

So tonight on Nashville’s...Read More

Bad luck
When it rains it pours
Bad luck soars
You're falling apart
Behind closing doors

When the lights go out
You're consumed with doubt
Your losing your voice
But dying to shout

The domino effect
Your life is a wreck
One wrong move
And you sprained your neck

A stroke of bad luck
You're...Read More
