Poetry - All To Come By Mike Watts
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...
Poetry - Dream By Phil Pretheroe
I've seen bombs on trains,
And buildings meet planes,
But I've never seen a black man in the white house.
I've seen boys walk and wave,
Turn to men and march to graves,
But I've never seen a black man in the white house. Read more...
Poetry - My Mate Dan By Andy Grant
My mate Dan is a very silly man,
A very silly man indeed,
He wants to change his life and risk his bloody life
To jump out of a Hercules,
A territorial man with dark red hat,
He has chosen to follow his dad,
Poetry - First Love and Your Love By Laurenceaux
I love you inside.
Deep inside, protected and warmed
where no-one-else has been,
and as with undercurrents
you move unseen in me,
you stir my heart
kick me inside
Poetry - Brief Encounter By Terry Ireland
I was walking to the station
To catch an early morning train
Not a very nice day
Dark with drizzly sort of rain
When this voice beside me said
Hi would you like a lift
I'm not normally here at this time Read more...
Poetry - Battered By Michelle Dee
Did you fail to turn in, are you getting too thin?
Is this the year to finally stop all the drugs you're taking?
Kid yourself it's all okay. You already know
you'll have to pay. So lie inside,
die inside, it doesn't really matter.
Just another night and day, when you got battered. Read more...
Poetry - The Speaker of The Commons By Patrick Henry
Mick Martyr, a Clyde worker, worth his metal,
Falls on his sword, they carry for State Opening.
Rows rage on MPs, on two home loans, two jags,
Two lav. seats, two blue films, two mistresses,
To show the masses, who now their master is;
Two turtle-doves, to bill and coo, in their cote,
To house the ducks, spare no expense; to float Read more...
Poetry - We interrupt your programming to go live to the BBC News desk ... By Mark Walmsley
'Reports are just coming in that...
Democracy has just been assassinated
From the comments from the gentleman in the hat
He witnessed the murder as orchestrated
There is widespread panic on the streets
Carnage, devastation an attack on the elite' Read more...
Poetry - Relationship Ret-con By Joe Hakim
the staples that bound us
have come unstuck
as we fall to bits
like a ripped up book
you rant and issue
your prime directive
our horizons shift into
a Jack Kirby perspective
Poetry - People By Mike Watts
Don't ever be afraid
To speak your mind
Even if you find
Your words smacking
Like a fist
Into the face
Of the person that
You're speaking to
Poetry - A Wish for Unity By Suraya Begum
It’s time for us all to unite,
Stop trying to separate Black from White
It’s time for people to get along,
Everyone together will make the world strong
Racism can have such a bad effect,
People coming together is what will earn respect Read more...
Poetry Larkin 25 - The Farmers Market By Gary Clark
I saw a farmers market today on Prinny Dock side
A good place for a market thought I
How long have farmers made plastic tractors for kids?
And little aeroplanes that fly around on a stick?
Looked a bit desolate, the traders bored stiff
Not many farmers and nowt for a quid
The fat and the skinny the big and the tall Read more...
Poetry - The Right to Rule By Patrick Henry
The Bother Boys come blowing in,
By stealth through the back door.
Euro Polls gave them the nod.
Round corners lurk dozens more.
Garbed like bouncers, they’re in fact
Gatecrashers, sneaking backwards in,
Thought a loony fringe safely outside; Read more...
Poetry - Poetry versus Art By Mark Walmsley
If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then art is a personal expression
If diction is a rule of language, then poetry does not have a connection.
How can an art critic judge, when he has no talent of his own?
Poetry - Hannah By Steve Rudd
The snow. That's what it came down to.
And, of course, the cold
That penetrated the folds
So the sheep couldn't see the shelter
Amidst the pristine whiteout.
That's why they roamed
At right angles to shepherds,
