A Bridge Too Far
A fisherman entered my favourite pub
He said he’d been fishing for that evening’s grub
He carried some salmon, a couple of brace
Which rather explained the big grin on his face

He said to the landlord, ‘Can I use your fridge,
For these fish...Read More

A bridge too far
Here lie a dentist and his wife.
Long in the tooth they left this life.
Young Smith inherits in the will
Some gold crowns and a dental drill!

Where was I on "Bull" Conner's day,
When the world saw white-hate on display?
Attack dogs, hoses, and lawmen's feet,
Blacks felled like timber on a southern street.
As fists and batons flayed the air,
Hate left the wounded laying there.

They’d crossed the great divide, to the other side of the ‘Oh My God River’.
Our Trolls were struck by the ‘Bridge Too Far’, it set their hearts, to quiver.
Yes, their curiosity and their great big Troll hearts; were pounding all...Read More

 A Bridge in Portugal 
There had been much rain in the upland and the river ran strong, so forceful
 that a pillar, on the old bridge, broke off and half of it fell.
Misty night when a bus crossed the...Read More

Let me hold your mic
Let me feel your pain

Let me disappear in your depth

Let me paint with your tears

Let me read from your wrinkles 

Let me hold the gem that makes you 

Let my tongue speak of the strength, that's you

I hear you

My Hypocrisy
In my rearview mirror lies tarnished remains.
Ahead of me are the souls of past generations still decaying.
I'm living in the middle of a war zone,
but this zone of war is where I call home.
Where are all the fairy tales that...Read More

Cool as ice yet warmed by scent
     that sets tortured hearts aflame.
Distant like the furthest star

On The Bridge Too Far
The distance to you where you are,
spans too wide on the bridge too far.

I run the distance, yet, still I see,
There's more stretched out ahead of me.

Too far the bridge, too long to cross,
unless your wings to me you toss!...Read More

 we crossed the border into No Man's Land.
On the convoy's eastern flanks...

and a bridge too far as we led
 the first wave on north-west passage.

From out of the...Read More

My ode to the Netherlands
Beneath Australia’s expansive sunlit sky, I recall the patchwork quilt, where my life began
12 provinces united, one country created; uniformity resists when anthems unite the parochial clan

From staunch Overijssel in the north, to Limburg’s laughter in the south
From Drente’s eastern...Read More
