Re: Poem??

Poems from the Dark Side?

I just want to be a moaner and a groaner
so what the hell is wrong with all of that?
I just happen to believe that the world is full of sleaze
and there's nothing good it just so full of crap!

I wake up in the morning and I feel oh so depressed
I just light a fag, a slug of scotch and wander in me vest
I never open curtains, or answer phone calls too
I try to watch the tellie but the news is all so blue!

the weather it is always raining and the paths are full of poo
and the vandals are all vandalizing (cries) "I just don't know what to do"
I switch on the computer and I clack on message yack
At last I've found a haven of like souls who love the crap

I love it when they post a thought, and just complain about some rort
they say they don't like this and that -and someone should fix it - go in to bat
I just love the moans and groans no solutions just bare bones
of all our absolute negative sides it's good to wallow with no guides

so don't criticize us moaners and our cousins groaners too
we like to share our miseries and want you to feel blue too
this world is is not all happy it was never meant to be
so come on El Presidento - wallow in this crap with me!

Re: Poem??

Great stuff MB, I like your gritty style.. I have written some dark poems..................


ANXIETY

What is this name less, faceless fear
That gnaws at me endlessly here
It fills my head with cares and woe
Where it comes from I donít know
Ah bliss its gone again leaving no reason
For tormenting me this long season.
It will come back to cause me pain
No question, it always comes back again.
My stomach knots my legs arms quiver
An icy dart and my back begins to shiver
Itís useless to hide or try to run away
For it will wait to crush me another day.
Hark, it speaks and says itís name


ďMy name is Anxiety & have come to claim
All that I can gather of the human race
Render them useless in every place
While their minds are filled with me
They are blinded, and cannot see
There is an answer to this deadly game
But donít ask me to speak its name
While I exist with my brother Fear
The plans of men will disappear
I know your hearts, I know your plans
I wreck your days, Why, because I can.Ē

Re: Poem??

Re: Poem??

you've got me on a roll RJ - here's one of me old time favorites:

Reflections Across a Table

I came across intentional as he sat with Ms Maybe
I asked him why his glasses shone - my reflection beckoned me

Maybe said its accidental don't take it all to heart
He trained for taxidermy but once he went to far

There was a terrible accident when once he whirled his knife
He started with an elephant and it ended with some mice

So now he's incognito with marguerites standing by
His stare is a reflection of the blueness in the sky

He has an alto ego that swings from he to she
One minute a cool sweet boy the next a **** for free

So do not make assumptions when his knife is on high ground
I'd hate to think your taxidermy time had just come round!

we'll get back to the nice ones soon - should we?

Re: Poem??

MB, I spent quite a lot of the years between 1976 - 1995 in Basingstoke where I had a retail outlet.

Didnt ever go into the old town so all I remember @bout it is countless roundabouts.



I get down on the floor
only now and then
my poor old back is sore
and I cant get up again

So when I have a minute
I make a little list
and when son visits
he does the jobs quite quick

son really is good hearted
and soon has done the lot
we avoid him when he's farted
he does it quite a lot.
