The Sandringham Sonnet
The Queen released a long and weary sigh
Her cherished grandson, Harry, had jumped ship
He clearly did not understand just why
His fellow Royals are joined at the hip

‘Your destiny, dear boy, is to remain’
said Charles, his father, clearly under stress

Fence and the fox
Cattleman's pride
who put the bounty
on the head of the
Danger City Cowboy?
somebody said something
and those Varmitts responded to it.
Otters curiosity.

People say “Harry, how WILL you two cope
having nothing - apart from each other?”
I say, “Look, don’t you worry - I’m hardly broke,

Premium Member Old Flame

Not knowing she were alive or dead,
I kept her memory sedated
in the three-walled room.

Now I hear she is alive
(though a little arthritic),
and living in Sussex with four cats.

Of course the affair now must cease,
the fantasy cauterized.

I won’t, after all these...Read More

Premium Member In a Sussex Graveyard

His name is John Albert Cummings, 
born 1878 died..... well we are not sure,
the stone is much worn.

Up we hop on the green mound,
dance the frantic dance.
The sacrilegious sex
adds risqué flavors,
drives us into an underworld
where flesh struggles
atop old bones.

Let me be the sunset
All I have is the sunset
These colours and the light
Since when did I love pink and grey?
But I stare,
Do not dare to move
I lean to enter their display.

This beauty may not form again.

And sadly...i start to drive.
Through the unremarkable village with its tall 
Georgian Bay window panes, lightless,
devoid of visages; outwardly staring back at my 
Abject countenance with detached contempt and utter disdains.
