The Banter Wagon

There is a wagon rolling
On the way called “Jokers Road”
A carriage or a coach perhaps
Where humour can unload
A zany, playful, happy place
Where fun is all the biz
Tomfoolery and old hi-jinks
That buzz with kick and fizz

But careful if you board it
For you need to understand
That the banter wagon can upturn
Unless you can withstand
The raillery and funny gags
That lads and lasses band about
All in the name of craic, as
They chaff and shout it out!

 

Weekends

Ah the weekend’s round the corner
I feel it on the wind
I can sense it soon arriving
As the week will then rescind
Its clutches on our time and life
All pressured and harassed
To welcome in the weekend for
A break that’s unsurpassed

A time to spend with family
To down some wine or beer
To rest, relax and contemplate
With good times and much cheer
To unwind and put feet up
To socialise; party
To partake in our choice of things
Our loves and our hobby

A time to mow the garden lawn
Or wash the car and dog
To frequent gym and tennis courts
And maybe try leap frog
To shop and cook and maybe clean
Prepare for the next week
Whilst keeping kids all occupied
Without a tear or squeak

To decorate that back bedroom
To plant the borders up
To polish all the silverware
To fix that broken cup
And then when we’ve quite finished we’ll
Drop on Monday stressed
And need another break to then
Recover from our rest!

Statistics

Have we now become a species that
Need numbers every day
Statistics that will tell us just
What we should do and say
That tell us what to eat and wear
Where to be; where to go
Statistically speaking then
Numbers run our lives just so!

But where is our autonomy
Away from the main crowd
To be the one outlier that
Stats say are not allowed
For in essence it’s those numbers
That makes the difference big
Not sitting right next to the mean!
But out there – don’t you twig?

So don’t become a number nor
A minion or norm
But make your stats significant
Lest dare they all conform
Ensure that you become the one
Who makes the largest range
For your variance might stimulate
A worthy helpful change

Time for Tea

Whether you’re a quaffer, a guzzler or sipper
There’s one thing for certain ‘bout tea
That wherever your are or whoever you’re with
It’s a drink that makes one feel so free

Yes free from the rat race and crazed life
And free from the mayhem so mad
When a brew hits your nose, you will curl up your toes
With a smile on your lips to be glad

And your pinkie will rise all in one go
With a tinge of the ‘how-do-you-do’
For this china affair of the tea cup just there
Will refresh in an instant – it’s true!

Time for Tea

 

If The Cap Fits

If the cap fits then please wear it
Though cautioned as you do
To understand that you will then
Take any blame that’s due

And akin to Cinderella
If slipper fits as well
Whatever mask you might then wear
Such fitting rings the bell

Or in the case of fingerprints
When image matches up
Admit that you were in the frame
And drank from guilt stained cup

For throughout our lives we walking so
Indelibly with tracks
That leave a trail of suggestion
To fill in all the cracks

So be sure to first acknowledge
If you have hidden guilt
For by your words and actions sure
The truth will then be built

And all will then unravel full
Right there before your eyes
Exposing just where you have been
Despite any disguise.

The Cat Burglar

He came just like a stalker
To mark out his territory
To seal his scent upon the ground
For power’s supremacy

He trespassed in the garden
And sprayed his odour foul
And then he left – the cat burglar
In quietness with no howl

Nor hiss or spit or catfight
He left without reward
For all he found was emptiness
That failed to strike a chord

And bar the scent – the mark he left
He left not one surprise
So powerless to elicit more
Dressed in cat’s disguise

Believe In Yourself

Believe in yourself
You’re worth so much more
Than you portray now
Your life’s not a bore

Believe in yourself
Accept who you are
Love your reflection
And shine like a star

Believe in yourself
Build up your esteem
Your worth is immense
For you’re the cat’s cream

Believe in yourself
Give you due respect
Honour your value
With pride not neglect

Believe in yourself
Content being you
Smile that you’re worthy
Yes – know that it’s true!

 

Laughter

Laughter – such an infectious thing
That brings us all to life
Give it a go and see just how
It takes away your strife

Go on now! Raise a little smile
Or let it all just rip
And from titter to full chortle
With joy your heart will skip!

So have a laugh and “lol” a bit
And feel glad tidings fall
For chuckles have been said to be
The best medicine of all

From sedate giggles giggling
To boisterous huge guffaws
I swear you’ll end up feeling great
From laughter than before!

Lifelong Friend

For just how long she had forgot
He’d sat upon the chair
Her old teddy in the corner
The worn out little bear
With the ear that had come adrift
And missing button nose
So bare in parts from all her love
He’d seen her highs and lows

But what a friend he’d been to her
Her confidant, her mate
He’d been her comfort blanket and
Sat with her while she ate
They’d cuddled up to go to sleep
He’d travelled many miles
And in those very early days
He’d watched her cry and smile

He’d held her hand and been her nurse
He’d sometimes been to school
He’d even joined in country walks
And taught her all the rules
And then as years had trundled on
And she’d grown up so tall
He’d been retired from his duties
To sit once and for all

And since that day he’d simply sat
On that chair just where he fell
But as a friend he’d still watched out
To see that all was well
And she; as age had crept up
And taken her by stealth
Just knew she had her friend close by
In good and in bad health

And as her years came to their close
That partnership survived
The old bear in the corner chair
Where friendship always thrived
And though no words were ever said
He knew he’d served an end
As lifelong mate and confidant
Past teddy bear to friend

Litter

If you simply must drop your litter
Walking down the street
Just think about the impact
It will have upon our feet
For in particular if it’s sticky
Say goo or chewing gum
You might just get a little stuck
Or end up on your ……
And please don’t drop bananas
That can cause a slip and fall
For combined with all those fag ends
They’re the worst culprits above all!
