Apologies to Dr Seuss

These words kept pestering me so I had to exorcise and transfer them. Sorry that you caught the transference!



Inhabit our flats

Where we hang up our hats

So how about that!

When will Omicron

Finally be gone?

It’s getting tough

When we’ve had enough

So today

As we go our way

We smile and say G’day

1.5 metres away

Behind masks for the fray.

We long for the morning

When we need no more warning

As we wake up yawning

When the new hope is dawning.

Don’t forget to look for the #WATWB. I’ll join in when I get my act together!

Lines On An Abandoned Shoe In A Driveway


Foot loose

And fancy free

We had a dilly

And a dally

On our dilettante.

Ah, the nocturnal hours

Of decadent pleasure

All night


All night

Movie marathons

Shouldn’t end

Like this.

We walked

The red-eye special


With a limp.

What Am I But a Post-it Note


What Am I But a Post-it Note

On me you find a jot

And scribble a lot.

There’s portrait and landscape

And various forms shape

Images on my page

From folks of all age.

I contain the trivial

And matters of import.

Whatever your sport

You can scribe a report.

I faithfully keep whatever you wrote

For I’m a humble post-it note!

We are the World #WATWB returns soon


Ginger Beer

Ginger Beer

Ginger beer.

Sweet-sour tang, sliding

Along tongue and teeth.

Refreshing relief

To a parched palate.

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
