Just A Minute

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Just A Minute ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

Just A Minute

Give me a minute, she says
So I offer her a leaf of my life
A minute slice, a minute
The most insignificant of moments
But also the most significant
The purest, the most precious gift
Because this moment, this minute
Is all I have to give

I could have...

Read a poem
Had a blether
Checked the time
Watched the weather
Made a coffee
Grabbed a bite
Kissed someone
Seen a sight
Looked at my e-mail
Blown a balloon
Shaken a hand
Whistled a tune
Called my daughter
Done a crossword
Stroked the dog
Said something absurd

But no...

I choose to give you a minute
Beating millions to this moment
And hope you treat it well
For it's the only one I have

Short

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Short ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

Short

Most poems are far too long
Like some interminably tedious song
Your mother likes, am I wrong?

Crusaders

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Crusaders ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

Crusaders

Teetering on faith's shaky stilts they come
Heralding the one God, no fake lord of course
What they can't get by coersion, they'll pilfer by force
Crusaders of the bugle, cross bearers of the drum

Ode to French Cuisine

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Ode to French Cuisine ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

Ode to French Cuisine

The French eat anything that moves it's said
When on a pleasant night out on the town
Yet it's the sordid snail that I most dread
Like chewing gum soiling the sodding bread
And a glass of rouge to gulp the damn thing down

Frogs legs leap up to number two methinks
In three litres of oil the victims drown
Now there they are a-sitting midst the drinks
All spindly limbs like some weird kind of jinx
And a glass of rouge to gulp the damn things down

The awkward oyster ends this list of crime
With a consistency to make you frown
Let me offer you one mouthful of slime
An experience that's far from sublime
And a glass of rouge to gulp the damn thing down

Going Grey

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Going Grey ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

Going Grey

Like a comfy chair
Like a favourite sweater

I'll wear you
Take this skin
These bones

And put them on
And call them me

Like a cozy café
Like a favourite walk

I'll bear you
Take this weight
These stones

And cast them off
And call them he

Like a precious song
Like a favourite book

I'll share you
Take this hand
These thoughts

And wrap them up
And call them thee

My Dog

Poetry Of Sorts
~ My Dog ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

My Dog

My dog's got a mind of his own
My dog calls a bone a bone
My dog jumps from windows gaping
My dog flies through curtains draping
My dog poos in precious places
My dog enjoys licking faces
My dog slumbers at my feet
My dog always loves to eat
My dog breaks out once a week
My dog gives my toes a tweak
My dog loves his daily walk
My dog ignores me when I talk
My dog follows me around
My dog keeps his nose to the ground
My dog's a sheep in wolf's clothing
My dog's absence is my loathing
My dog's a food finding sleuth
My dog's cool and that's the truth
My dog adopted me one day
My dog is here and here to stay

Now There's A Job

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Now There's A Job ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

Now There's A Job

Christmas rubber stamps another year
The leaves have all been roused and rounded up
With those funky new-fangled leaf blowers
Now there's a job

The relatives will come, they always do
Like ants to sugar, we will live it up
Whatever 'it' is, then we'll tidy up
Now there's a job

In time to see the old year truly out
Like a drunken uncle on his ear
The resolutions rain like fireworks
Now there's a job

The spring will out and summer come again
The leaves will rust and readen on the bough
Civil servants will start to wrap things up
Now there's a job

Moving On

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Moving On ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

Moving On

This dying business is a bit of a pain
I've just bought the damn tickets for the train
That last poem I wrote was utterly vain
I'll be blowed if it doesn't look like rain
This bloody timing does in my brain
& if she has to do the ironing again
She'll kill me

If I'd known in a few hours I'd be gone
I wouldn't have left the heating on
I guess I've been looking kinds of wan
But I'd never have had these pyjamas on
If she feels likes she's fallen for some sort of con
She'll kill me

This fading away is a bit of a bind
I hope the bank manager doesn't mind
It might sound like I'm being unkind
But if she finds out I went and left her behind
She'll kill me

I never thought I'd be off tomorrow
There's so many things I still wanted to borrow
& if she gets stuck with the brunt of the sorrow
She'll kill me

The Right are on the right
And the Left are on the left
But what I'd like to know
Is who's right and what's left

My Room

Poetry Of Sorts
~ My Room ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

My Room

Here in my room
There are no walls
For me the wide horizon calls

Here in my room
There is no ceiling
Leaves imagination reeling

Here in my room
There is no floor
I'm going deep where there's no law

And down the stairs
And far away
I hear kids' cries
And traffic's hum
And distant sighs
And someone's mum
Feel fading day
Sense shady lairs

But here in my room
Windows are wide
The door's open
Nowhere to hide

For up in my room
There are no walls
There is no ceiling
There is no floor
Yawning wide the windows
Always open is the door

5 Minutes

Poetry Of Sorts
~ 5 Minutes ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

5 Minutes

It's getting late, the hour's come
To sleep, perchance to snore
But when I say it's time for bed...
"Just 5 minutes more!"

In the wardrobe, magic lift
Rolling on the floor
And when I say it's time for bed...
"Just 5 minutes more!"

Jumping on the sofa
Hide behind the door
But when I say it's time for bed...
"Just 5 minutes more!"

It's story time, we're in the jungle
Lions leap and roar
And when I say it's time for bed...
"Just 5 minutes more!"

Shunning Time

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Shunning Time ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

Shunning Time

Today I'm shunning time
Walking the dog, it's after dawn
Rush hour's come and gone
The streets are calm and satchel-less
Léo's at English school which makes it
Midweek or thereabouts
But I don't care
There's a chill in the air
And Dasco's coat is thickening
Must be autumn settling in
Ignore the church bell
The grey sky gives nothing away
Another wrinkle in the mirror today
At 47
Where did that come from?
I didn't know mirrors got wrinkles

Mystic Rhythms ~ "Taking Sides"

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Taking Sides ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

Taking Sides

Eddie and Billy
Pencils fly like daggars
But don't get things wrong
The class they're in's the same

Ronaldo and Messi
Balls fly like daggars
But don't rate them wrong
The sport they play's the same

Barack and Hillary
Looks fly like daggars
But don't get 'em wrong
The party is the same

Obama and Romney
Words fly like daggars
But don't judge them wrong
Their county is the same

Bush and Bin Laden
Planes fly like daggars
But don't read them wrong
The planet is the same

Zorgo and Kirky
Lazers fly like daggars
But don't think them wrong
God remains the same
