Shower light's still on
Cheap coffee's gone
Been asked where I've been
Can smell Mr Sheen
A liner in the bin
Toilet flushes blue Read more...
Poetry - On Yer Todd By Joe Hakim
I'm the last piece of spaghetti
in the jar in the cupboard,
I'm the kid picked out
by the nit nurse,
I'm the unclaimed purse
in the cloakroom.
I'm the only coin in the
Poetry - On Patrol in Afghanistan, A Soldier's Tale By Andy Grant
The call to prayer as dusk falls in
The moonlight starts to shine
All around fear grows within
With the sound of gunfire rounds,
The mortar flash the home made bomb
The small arms fire afar
The dessert night is cold and still
Poetry - No Practical Skills Required By Mark Walmsley
Congratulations and well done, on the purchase of your new kit
The enclosed easy instructions, will show you how to fit
All the packaged items, contained and arranged as seen
Will give you years of good use, the best that's ever been
Take out the parts from box 'A', and place them on the floor
Place bags '1','2','3' and '4' with the hammer and a saw
Get yourself a screwdriver, a tape and resin Glue Read more...
Poetry - Lonely Boy By Dayne Coyne
Suspended in the world of twilit sentiments
That flickered dimly through his sad grey eyes
Resigned to stagnant future the boy viewed himself
As now constrained by fate to tread the aisles
That retreat into the past
Between the half-forgotten memories
Where sorrow's line is cast Read more...
Poetry - The Unhappy Clown By Bronwyn Ellis
A glance at his reflection before painting on his face,
His scarlet smile stretched wide across a pure white, pallid base,
The gaudy stripes of colour worn in contrast to his frown,
A teardrop in the cornflakes from this poor and saddened clown,
A lifetime making others laugh makes humour seem so tragic,
The repetitious magic tricks had somewhat lost their magic,
Balloons transformed to animals before the children's eyes, Read more...
Poetry - Flag By Laurenceaux
I saw our flag
flapping and stuttering against its pole.
I saw our flag straining,
writhing and contorting
in a wind of change.
I saw the pole unbending.
Dogmatic in its stance,
leashing and lashing the flag
Poetry - Soldier, Farewell By Patrick Henry
Under the flag he chose to serve,
Marching no more down roads aflame,
The soldier fallen lies held in where the pall
Bearers pass the ranks for his last time.
Few words will tell or heal the loss.
Bugle notes stand for the unspoken thought.
Those nearest share the deepest hurt.
Poetry - Winter Rain 09 and A Tale of Romance By Phil Pretheroe
She wore red,
Like it was summer,
it was December.
Poetry - 500 Yards By Mike Watts (Video)
I side step
A wounded tampon
A crushed can
On somebody's bonnet
Poetry - Fall of a House in Ulster By Patrick Henry
To go across the sea to Northern Ireland,
Could mean curtains for you, closing your last day.
Thinking to see sunset ablaze along The Lagan,
It's your house torched by those wanting you out of the way.
Memory of tense times recent in The Troubles,
Jogs at sight of boarded windows, from where some had flown, Read more...

Amid the intensity
Poetry - The Modern World - Art Girl By Scott Rorrison
How I've watched
In rapt summertime bewilderment
Of your steel framed shopper
Careering down 'Grannies Hill';Read more...
Poetry - Lukewarm Water and Loneliness By Laurenceaux
I flow around you
giving at every turn,
carrying you above the rocks
and trying to cushion your life.
But water dammed for too long
can overflow its banks,
Poetry - Interpretations By Joe Hakim
This poem is about getting up in the morning
getting washed, getting dressed and heading
out into the day
This poem is about stubbing your toe
on the edge of a door
This poem is about all the people
who are desperate to see you fail Read more...
Poetry - Maybe I'm Just Crazy By Paul England
Maybe I'm just waiting
to move on to the next life
as thoughts cut through my mind
like the mad man with a knife
In the darkness of redemption
stood the poet with no voice
for my youth destroyed my soul Read more...
Poetry - Buy One Get One Free By Mark Walmsley
Buy now and save with 'splat' you will be utterly amazed
Our busty blondes that advertise it, will leave you purely dazed
It works wonders in the bath and around the kitchen sink
It turns all surfaces sparkling clean or that's what we make you think
By now you will be hypnotized, to our advertisement plea Read more...
