phantom tangents by crispin comma

tantalising

wet wipe ghost

sothic cycles

buttered toast


beowulf

& cantaloupes

reinforcements

lost en route

inner-schisms

how d'you do?

paradoxes

foxes too


badgers - badges

ramparts - rampant

same again please

phantom tangents

there the pastry folk dwell

~~~

there the pastry folk dwell by so far today just tea & look what happens anyway …

~


under earth's fragile crust

well there is no hell

but the planet is hollow

there the pastry folk dwell


it's a secret society

/ pastry based race

their bodies skin is choux

shortcrust is their head / face


so ignore modern science

with its gobshite shite lies

coz it's more jules verne

meets some pasties & pies


their capital's flanballah

it's a quiche meets citadel

it's breath taking in springtime

there the pastry folk dwell

...







 

good morn thing britain

good morn thing britain by gareth photosynthesis

~~~

good morn thing britain

i'm wearing mittens

you're sunny in places

yet some galey traces

with grey in between

your hills are still green

& bonfire smoke's yonder

it's sunday you tosser


the kettle is calling

the telly is boring

i blame the phoenicians

the black hand & titian

as certain as swanky's

the same thing as wanky

the rest we forget

- is this a poem yet

( ? )
