With his endless packs of words.

He write and snore while sleeping.

The Wandering Minstrel

When poetry and lyrics written in rhyme,

Writing and singing, to bestow delights
On ladies, peasants, and errant knights.

A kangaroo in dungarees hops hopefully 
	To win first prize in the Favs contest hot
		On the heels of an enlightening glow worm

Surely life is no competition but the stage lights
	Reverberates all the promising contenders

With Crystal Ball I might have found 
Some way to weave my way through time
Instead I played without the rules

SO MUCH DEPENDS...(Inspired by The Fault in Our Stars)

Chimera World
Misleading, minacious maze now thwarted,
eschews stealth as sandal-clad steps resound.
Determined and dour, destiny draws near;
completing this quest: forever renowned.

Stygian sky grants a much-welcomed boon:
conformable clouds cast curtain aside.
A radiant pearl suspended aloft,
reveals route to where...

While Freud sits at the mind end of the couch phallus in hand
shapes others’ dreams in unspoken imposition ‘must-abation’
analyses abuses his daughter in metaphorical incest projects

Play with word pun in flow and fun;
Opt to fling thought in lines that rhyme;
Etch a fond run in rain and sun;
Taut and loose plot that stretch each chime;
Ink flow and feel with love that...

POETIC LICENCE

A poets prerogative, poetic licence
It has to be said in whispered silence.
To misspell a word to make it rhyme.
You know some do it to end a line.
Its poetic licence, like a rapids dimple.
Whirlpool, avoid, like...

I've been granted my Poetic Licence,
Which allows me to write as I find.

Power of the Pen
History has often shown, that with acumen,
the sword pales in comparison to a Poet’s pen!
It cuts, not as does the sword forged from steel,
but with a piercing words, a conscience can feel!

With subterfuge and sweetness,...

Or poems so obscure that no one can read
Sadly, after investigating some dreadful examples
Writing poetry is now banned - the police have decreed!

So writing poetry is now illegal
