Our Dog, Max

He was one of us, Growing up, Side by side, With our children. There through good and bad. His big nose and big brown eyes, Ready to greet us, No matter what kind of day we’d had. He was there at Christmas. His first, roaming under wrapping. Chewing happily on his present, Wondering what all…

Grey Old Man

He is grey. Not silky grey, Or silvery grey, Just Filthy, Muddy, dirty grey. He stains innocence, His touch dark, despicable, destroying. He takes. Crushing purity, Stealing childhood. He leaves permanent grey scars, Deep within his victims. Yet he doesn’t face consequences, His crimes attack the vulnerable. Too quiet, too young, too innocent to speak…

She is the Night

She is time itself, Watching over all; Like the eye of Anubis : Powerful, Yet hidden in clear view. She commands the moon, With words as soft as rose petals, She knows her actions Will awaken the waves, Stir nocturnal nature Release those who embrace darkness. Her eyes remain unseen, They will pierce Through any…

Why I Write

My words were nonsense, Incorrect and back to front. They said “She’ll never be academic” “She’ll never amount to much” ‘They’ said I only had an issue, with my b’s and my ds. So they brushed away the problem, They didn’t want anyone to see. Still words seemed to find me. Release my tangled mind….

Food will be genetically grown. While fresh foods are stories old people told. Cars will be electronic driverless machines. Theres fewer accidents and it keeps itself clean….

Everyone’s A Winner

He blinked, And blinked again. He couldn’t believe his eyes. His numbers had come up on the lottery. He jumped in the air, He actually squealed with excitement. He was a millionaire. He went to bed with the biggest smile. Not telling a soul his news. Up early for work. He marched in, Swore at…
