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

PEOPLE

‘It Wasn’t Me’  Politicians get on my nerves. Their promises rain down like confetti at a wedding but mostly never happen. Some are great liars, others just feed on the lies. PEOPLE Harry lives in a cardboard box behind the Eiffel Tower Alice sits in doorways hoping for hard currency in exchange for a wilting

LETTER IN A BOTTLE

‘Claudette Colbert still from Cecil B. DeMille’s ‘Cleopatra’ movie 85 years ago’ He was thinking to himself that he’d never written a letter. A proper letter, using a pen and paper. A letter he would write, sign and post. He decided he’d have a go although the absence of pre-emptive text was worrying him. His

‘THE HOTEL CONFINEMENT’

Artwork by Lee Miller- ‘Surrealism’ It was on the BBC News. The story of Bethany. An innocent 17 year old being treated worse than a serial killer held in solitary confinement because in this so called great land the bigwigs haven’t got a compassionate clue what to do to help her. I won’t rant on

‘Milo the laser chaser’ What an interesting couple of days in the life of Zoolon. First of all I’d taken a visit to a pal of mine and his girlfriend who had just moved into a new flat they’d bought. It’s a nice place. Better still, not long after I arrived so did Milo the

MUSHROOMS, GRAVESTONES, SPIDERS & BEES

‘Mushroom Quartet’ I don’t make a habit of hanging out in graveyards. The only reason I found myself in one on Saturday morning was because it was pouring with rain and the path through the graves of St Eanswythe Church was a shortcut from where my car was parked and the place I was heading

ZOOLON ON SALFORD CITY RADIO

I had a dream of the nightmare kind last night. I dreamed that I couldn’t play the piano anymore. Not good. I was still thinking about that when going through my messages earlier today. Then the day got better. Salford City Radio notified me that my song – the one that featured the unique Fifi Rong

COUNT TO THREE

‘Calorific Tardis’ BAD ADVICE ‘to be adapted into a lyric’ You’ve got the motor; you’ve got the SatNav and a tank full But you’re still stuck on the inside looking out Blind faith, too blind and blinkered to realize The kick you get living with all that doubt There’s a doorway to Hell or is

THE MOST POPULAR DOG IN TOWN

‘Alfie’s Back in Town’ Here’s Alfie the most popular dog – maybe the most popular living thing – in town. He’s just back on the scene after a short break recovering from an op to sort his leg out. Now he’s good to go all the old ladies are feeding him the treats they keep
