Here’s a few very little ditty’s that I wrote in 1998. They were really just intended as little teasers for the first book of poetry I wrote, called Exquisite Blasphemy.
Dug them out tonight after a friend (Cheers Taff) surprised me by remembering a line from one of my poems from a few years after.
Save a brief spell on www.mrpinkster.co.uk most of these have never seen the light of day. I’ve got absolutely loads but the truth is I’ve never had the bottle to publish them for fear of rejection.
That and the stark realisation that I might be rubbish.
Time to forget about nonsense like that.
Thing is, I still enjoy reading some of them and remembering the things that were going through my mind when I wrote them.
And If one person gets any satisfaction from them, then I’ll be happy.
Tell me what you think.
AN EMPTY VOID SO EASILY FILLED WITH THOUGHTS FROM ONE MANS
CAN TAKE YOU FAR AWAY FROM HERE TO SOMEWHERE NICE INSTEAD.
Soothing peace and tranquillity
Reign in my world of calm
Relaxation holds the key
Chill out, be irie man.
Take your mind away from it all
If not your body, for a while
Cleanse and refresh the inner bedlam
Euphoria is more than wearing a smile.
Choose an independent state
Of mind, of heart and soul
Be certain where you are aiming
And understand your goal.
In the flower bed
I am in a strange predicament
Deep in the flower bed
I could just use a pitching wedge
But it might land on your head.
Chip and run or slash and burn
Can I really do ‘that’ here
I can’t!! Oh well, just leave it
I’ll try again next year.
Pink Hydraulic Eskimo’s
The story of the pink hydraulic Eskimo’s
Timing essential or bouncing is mental.
Suffering common in a land so cold
Few of these natives live to be old.
THOUGHTS THAT MAY NOT ALL BE NICE BUT ALL COME FROM THE
IS IN SOME SMALL WAY CREATING FEELINGS DISGUISED AS ART.
