JUMP THE QUEUE

‘Waiting, watching’ For my ambient, dark piece, ‘The Forgotten Daughter of Zeus’ as of now read, ‘The Forgotten Cheated Souls’. The more I hear about the greedy idiots who are stockpiling food while, for example, NHS staff don’t get a look in when it comes to visiting a supermarket after a long shift is over

A CAT IN SYRIA

9am – Saturday’s early morning clouds dish out a warning that a better than average, but not all that when it comes to serious storms, Storm Jorge is on his way (you can just see the coast of France on the horizon – in sunshine! – if you look hard enough) 10am – Yesterdays death

THE MUSICIAN’S CURSE

‘Following on from the graffiti blog post of last week here’s another similar – except  it’s artistically rubbish – pic. This one got a few laughs doing the family and friends rounds a while back. If you check out the ‘Cyclists Dismount’ sign you’ll see why. It doesn’t say a lot for Kyran’s mum, whoever

THE LADY WHO SPEAKS OF INTERESTING THINGS

‘Earlier That Night’ – adapted from a photo by Christian Lagereek Why me? I couldn’t work out what was happening at first. The sky looked weird. There’s not too much light pollution on the coast yet this night the sky had no flickering stars nor the black blanket the stars take a rest on. It

SNOWFLAKES AND FIRE

‘The Sea Puts on a Show For Free’ I was fighting with insomnia when I wrote this. Couldn’t sleep. It didn’t help that The Arsenal had lost to the Chavs in a game we deserved to win. It’s at times like these words choose themselves and I keep out of their way. The death toll

RUSTY TINS & VIOLINS

‘On The Outside Looking In – A Travel Agent’s Shop Window’ It’s Christmas any day now. Stating the obvious, this year is nearly over. Time to give my head a break for a few days. I’ll catch up with you all soon. The main thing is that I’d like to thank all of you for

ME & MY GUN

Artist ‘Iced-Blackberry’ 2012 There’s an annoying Christmas ad on TV that has a melody I don’t particularly like yet it’s one of those songs that get inside your head. Christmas songs on ads are often like it. I call them creativity destroyers. I checked out the one that was killing my creativity. It’s a song

100 YEARS FROM NOW

The sky will last forever The clouds are temporary In a 100 years from now What remains will be a poisoned sea Some will call it tragic When the sea puts on its show for free Just rotting fish and plastic A becalmed toxic destiny Idiots and profiteers Sit back and watch it on TV

MISS SALLY UMBRELLA

‘Miss Sally Umbrella’ Artist Unknown – sourced from Pinterest  The day they chopped down the last tree on earth was the day the humans stopped breathing. No oxygen, no humans. A few of us got lucky. We’d already had our brains transferred to robots. Not just any old robots. Proper human looking robots with eyes

THE DAY THE TREES DISAPPEARED

Zoolon’s Simple Take on Trees I wouldn’t like to be a tree in the Amazon right now. Having said that I probably wouldn’t particularly want to be a tree in the first place. I’d never get to see The Arsenal play again or get to eat macaroni cheese. Then there’s dogs with an urgent need
