Cold comfort – Promote Yourself

musstang
The general hum
The scattered crumbs
Of conversations
Half heard
The random muzak
Music
Depending how I hear
Interpret
Relevant or not
To how I feel
Bright flashes
Of little girl dresses
Amongst the grey white
And blue
Please feel free
To ask the staff
To change the air
Conditioning
For your comfortAre they God?

If only

New Year Poetry

My New Year’s Resolutions

 

      I will not throw the cat out the window
      Or put a frog in my sister’s bed
      I will not tie my brother’s shoelaces together
      Nor jump from the roof of Dad’s shed
      I shall remember my aunt’s next birthday
      And tidy my room once a week
      I’ll not moan at Mum’s cooking (Ugh! fish fingers again!)
      Nor give her any more of my cheek.
      I will not pick my nose if I can help it
      I shall fold up my clothes, comb my hair,
      I will say please and thank you (even when I don’t mean it)
      And never spit or shout or even swear.
      I shall write each day in my diary
      Try my hardest to be helpful at school
      I shall help old ladies cross roads (even if they don’t want to)
      And when others are rude I’ll stay cool.
      I’ll go to bed with the owls and be up with the larks
      And close every door behind me
      I shall squeeze from the bottom of every toothpaste tube
      And stay where trouble can’t find me.
      I shall start again, turn over a new leaf,
      leave my bad old ways forever
      shall I start them this year, or next year
      shall I sometime, or …..?
