The Builders are in (a Stream of Unconsciousness)

image.jpeg

If I build with words
What sort of edifice could I create?
Would my construct be believable?
My credibility be retrievable if a false façade was fashioned?
Or am I inevitably going to build upon a foundation akin to a swamp?
Would the contents be immense
Or would there be a sense
Of pretence?

When done and my travails all finished that I had begun…

Would a shed be ashaméd?
A gazebo have to go?
A lean-to try to, mean to, but fail to amuse with it’s shadowlands views?
A conservative conservatory need another story?
And its basement need replacement?
And if my floors and walls, Windows and ceiling
Were to be put on view,
Revealing their inadequacies;
Failing to please,
Perhaps I should have stuck to a simple tree-dwellin
Rather than to be consigned to history
As a mystery
Needing felling.

Some Words and Sum Symbols

image

More than this
Or
Less than that

equals (=)

Mathematically speaking

> this
Or
< that

But what does it all + up to?

I haven’t a clue.

The ‘ordinary’ word

Is the ‘ordinary’ word
Enough for me?
If ‘so’ would you still agree
When something ‘less’ than perfection is heard?

1066 – the year of 3 kings.

1066 and all that

You may have missed this news item
But, 950 years ago this year
The Normans arrived and defeated the Anglo-Saxon forces under their king, Harold.

Tim and Julia watched Time Team
Because they really dug Mick Aston And Phil
Digging trenches in East Cheam;
On The History Channel,
They’re probably digging them still.

Alfred was great at burning the cake
Hereward was awake to the possibilities
Ethelred was always unready
Edward the Confessor was not much of a professor
And when ‘he’ died things were a little unsteady.

Harold Godwinson fought the Danes
At Stamford Bridge
Which is not near Staines
He won perchance
Then had to rush back to Hastings for battle
With William from Normandy, France.

The battle ebbed and flowed until an arrow flue true from a Norman bow into the English king

(Add music here Am / F)

“That’s one in the eye for Harold
And William’s made another conquest.”

(C / G)

(Am)

1066, 1066, the year of three kings
1066, 1066, the year of three kings.

1936 is the other year of three kings
In Britain

The Ruff (a ruff draft)

The Ruff (a ruff draft)

One ruff is surely never enough!

How can it be

A man should have at least two, or maybe even three.

And, by man losing the dignity that a ruff would afford,

(If he could afford a ruff that is)

Man,without a ruff around the neck,

Has become a little ruff around the edges.

A long time away (in the ‘very’ distant furniture)

Future Furniture

I’m looking forward to the furniture!

The furniture? Don’t you mean the future?

Okay. I’m looking forward to the furniture of the future.

Wow, but ironically; like an open wound needs a suture.

How? Apart from phonically, does that expression suit your face?

Being ‘wrong rhyme, wrong place?’

No. Just being wrong in the very first place!

A perfect rhyme, you clever goose;
Pray tell how ‘you’ did avoid the noose.

They sought me here
They sought me there

You wished you’d worn clean underwear?

Haha, you fool, you loon, you win
I must leave off when you-

Begin?

I shall. Is there no future in the future?

Now there is a question
That hinders digestion.

A year on and nothing much changed. G:)

And ‘Stupid’ is with me

Always.

..

I ‘am’ the living embodiment

of stupidity.

I know, I shouldn’t be a boaster

Shouldn’t stick knives in toasters;

Shouldn’t set fire to lofts

Or leave spoons In microwaves;

And a stitch in time saves

The jeans that rip after I bleached them

I thought they’d be all white

I thought they”d be alright

But, they weren’t

And I wasn’t;

And so much more

That I am sure

You’ll agree

With me

That I am with ‘Stupidity!’
