DINING WITH THE TURKS
‘How to Confuse Facebook’ by Zoolon
Recently I’ve mentioned a mate of mine who has a habit of messing up. I think he may have surpassed himself on the stupid front this week.
He says, “It’s took me five hours to fit a roller blind.” I say, “Five hours? Never.” He says, “I spent two hours looking for the scissors to cut it to size. Then I spent ages wondering what the little brown things that were in a packet that came with the blind along with some screws were.” I say, “Rawlplugs.” He says, “Do what?” has a think, then says, “Is that what they’re called? Anyway, I couldn’t work out what to do with them, so I ditched them and just screwed the screws into the wall.” I say, “Brick walls?” He says, “Yes.” I say, “That’s amazing. Screwing screws into bricks without a power tool.” He says, “Not really, there’s been damp up there, they screwed in easy enough.” I say, “You must be pleased with yourself?” He says, “I wish I was, but no, when I woke up this morning it had fallen down.” I say, “You’re putting the curtains back up?” He says, “I can’t, I chucked them in the rubbish.”
At the moment I’m stuffed until my Mac gets fixed. I didn’t realize that all leads lead to a Mac and business wise I’m dead in the water without it. Bored senseless and still waiting for the engineer to turn up I wrote some words. Not an easy thing when you’re in an evil mood. In case you wonder, it’s about a Mac in a coma. It sings. Hopefully it reads OK.
DINING WITH THE TURKS
I’ve been dining with the Turks, they’re very special people
I think they may have the answers but mostly they never say
I’ve swum with schools of dolphins, they get exasperated
They want to climb to mountain tops but cannot find a way
When I was learning how to wipe my nose I argued with Greek thinkers
They claimed that they knew everything but just wouldn’t tell that day
I found myself in a theatre, sat watching Boredom from the stalls
One, she’s always on cloud nine, the other, he punches walls
One, she stands up proud and tall, the other, he mostly falls
I applauded, most just turned their backs, some whistled loud cat calls
Time for a song. This one is called ‘Delusional Troll’ from my Dream Rescuer album. Hope you enjoy;
Now for a song with a current theme, ‘Crucify’ by the exceptional Tori Amos.
