knots in the vest strings

knots in the vest strings ( a poem for a fuddled friday )




snot in the coffee & tea in the tree

feet on the oche & sneeze on the breeze

toes on the elbows

& crows in the know

cheese in the ballads & hoes in the heave


knots in the vest strings & wasps in the loft

whats in the questing & dross in the gloss

mopes in the earlobes

& glow in the flow

pants in the pantry & jack in the frost


squats in the quandary & hot in the freeze

blots on the fondly & bees in the wheeze

though in the stone's throw

& foes in the fro

knees in the nobbles & quiche in the keys


plots in the vestry & spots in the dots

rot in the zesty & shocks in the watts

shows in the panto

& boats in the row

seas in the salad & tongues in the toss

( some call it gibberish )  ( author notes  – i  ****in’ wish … )




mandates, marmosets

dum-dee-dum-dee-dee-dum

popcorn, leprosy

my prize plums


penguins, wishing wells

wobble-wibble-wooh-hop

barnets, barnacles

bop-bop-bop


flipflops, cauliflowers

wabber-dabber-doo-dah

cobwebs, fancy pants

tra-la-la


toenails, monoliths

jibber-jabber-doo-doo

dodos, bubblewrap

yeah-yeah

ooh

where to write  (  a  t r u e  s t o r y  s o  n o t  r e a l l y  a  s t o r y  t h e n  )




on the settee

when there's shit on telly


under some trees

as the breeze tickles knees


sat on the bog

if you're not shatting logs


scrawl in your bonce

if you're walking the dog


upon a peak

when the day is grim-grey


under duvets

with your torch in p.jays


on the bus home

rock 'n' roll - fuckin' yes


sat at a desk

with its sheets

& this mess

...





















save the …

save the …  (  a  v e r s e  )



save the whale

& the bee

save some face

plant more trees


save the shit

with its rhymes

save that nick

stitched in time


save the coins

& the strange

scrimp like shrimps

'til it rains


save & hope

fingers crossed

or surely

all is lost

drama queens  (   a   s  h  i  t  e   b  u  t   t r u e   p o e m   )




us dumb apes live in bubbles

some efforts then their muddles

a green shoot, a new dawn calls ( ? )

then bliss - the same old struggles


such storms within these bubbles

we live to feel their fuddles

a bubble burst yet that's far worse

that's actual fuckin' trouble
