beast before easter

beast before easter  (  h m m m m m m m  )


bats in the attic

the battle of jutland

is naps in a foundry

& houses in huts


woods on the woodchip

achoo & confucius

a clatter of cushions

a scatter of struts


stalking the morning

a pun in the oven

as sirius dribbles

& riddle's the mutts


mist is a vista

it's greener on venus

a deer in y' earwig

& stagger the ruts


sit isaac newton

it's grey in y' ashtray

the eye of a neutron

a tab for y' butts


queen nefertiti

a spoon in the treacle

& barks in the darkness

a trundle of guts


pearls in a swirlwind

a natter of napkins

so beast before easter

& may contain nuts


throbs of thrombosis

plus frogs & trombonists

a river of scissors

the kicks & the cuts

...

muffle-buggered sky thing ( a poem )

 




yes, it's squidgy in the riddle

said the lemon to the lark

as the catnip purred a lion

& the dogwood wolfed a bark


as the vicar played the fiddle

& the spiders spun an ark

neath a muffle-buggered sky thing

as the morris men turned dark


as the acorn chased a squirrel

up a flagpole in the park

& the marquis in his marquee

showed some aardvarks his birthmark


aye - it's vim-stuff in the fizzle

said the fishwife to the shark

oh but change is rearranging

it's that never-ending spark

cripes & out the other one

cripes & out the other one ( a poem but there are worse things … )


don't baffle the badger

or flummox the fox

don't puzzle the polecat

you'll give 'em the pox


don't bother the otter

or garble the lark

don't wobble the weasel

or things could turn dark


don't addle the adder

or tickle the toad

don't headfuck the heron

or you'll shit your load

...


































oh, scarecrows

oh, scarecrows ( 12 lines of amateur scrawl )




summer's snowmen, winter's patches

either mixes - neither matches

secret blinkers, sea-deep thinkers

staring scary - hairy thatches


pumkin bumpkins, rustic people

sometimes charming - mainly evil

herring red ploys, cheeky decoys

'neath a broad sky - life is peaceful


timeless styling, sleepy shirkers

muddy buggers, crop preservers

silent sentries, time aplenty

bird disturbers - stop the murder

...





















 

hot toes

hot toes  (  something i started on yesterday )



hot toes

puzzled troubles

scraping

soapy fumbles

thin-air

lemon scented

wednesday

part-fermented


vest strings

gently plucking

cowslips

tipping - tumbling

much is

doubtless hiding

scared or

elsewhere skiving


fuck off

dizzy dribbles

gobshite

pissy quibbles

belt it

chuckle buckles

sweet as 

honeysuckles


werewolf

pickled onions

sealed tight

phantom bunions

pop this

in the kettle's

song-sing

( hope things settle )
