Christmas Day Near Massacre
When we were kids, kids we were without no pain or fears,
we’d do the ‘devilish’ of things to impress our peers.
The biggest dare or bravest feat would for the pack be tried.
Lord knows now when I look back how no...Read More

Another Brick in the Wall
Another Brick in the Wall

I went to St Peters School in Cambridge
The first time I ever heard Pink Floyd
Was at my friends house during lunch break
His name was Brendan 
And was kicked out of school for being disruptive
Because he used...Read More

Premium Member Curious George and Winnie The Pooh
I remember Christopher Robin
When helping Pooh find honey
Was my biggest problem
I remember the blustery days
We trusted each other in every way

I remember When we helped Eeyore
Find his way home from the Sea shore
Everything was good
In the Hundred Acre Woods

I remember...Read More

Premium Member The Lunatic Is On The Grass
Unknowingly unable again to ever feel
As I stand gazing at the gates of dawn
Arnold Lange in evening heels
Awkwardly walking across the lifeless lawn
The pipers playing softly in the rays of a new sunrise
Luring the horizon into interstellar overdrive
See the gnome,...Read More

Two Sisters
I’d been out of work for quite some time and let me funds run low,
Of course this meant some favoured treats are first things that must go,
And for me favoured treat that meant the most, I degenerated into fear,
‘Cause if...Read More

Love is lost within the world
Anger flares in light of misconceptions
Sadness comes and sees its flag unfurled
Feeding itself on varying perceptions

Premium Member Tickles and Pickles in Eve's Den
He's given me a pickle
with nary any tickle!
As in the shade I stood
[He wasn't very good!]

The apple that I shared
he gave to me unpared.
So I gave his snake a shake
to make him see the stakes.

Then the sky went BOOM
G-d came...Read More

Syd Barrett Tribute Poem
of an fanciful mind
camouflaged to a layman's eye

a vision with an 
uptopian trance
mimicked by 
the madcap laughs

"My God, if I was just able
to pick just four for my table,
Lord who would it be,
Yes, surely nette,
and Syd for we’d want a fable!

Now, in short, that makes only two
I know, our wee nikko would do
she’s not shy or...Read More

Premium Member Hallowed Ground
As the breath fills our hallowed chest with life 
and heart beats upon drum of anch’ring bone
so prayerful meditation eases strife,
through dance and strum, we know, we’re not alone.
Our mantras swell, their sibilance alive…
with searching sounds we join here to...Read More

Oft-times I gave my true love  flowers  -

Embodiment of  loveliness,

Well-shaped and  well-proportioned,

So pretty and so fresh,

So perfumed,  velvet

Soft,  and  filled with

Punk !
Punk !

Back then we knew what it was
T.V. screens were not our choice
But we sold ourselves
To a fashion
Said it was
Just more colourful than the last one

First came the music
And then the love
But Punks were all disillusionment
Trying to change the world
With...Read More

I had to say good bye to my beloved kitty, Sydney.  Syd-Syd as I called her, loved
