Black Rabbit

Under the hedgerow
The black rabbit pauses
Eyes bright as diamonds.

Fur black as coal
It has survived the sharp vision
And hunting skills of predators.

The rabbit hops away
And a slender stoat appears
Relentlessly following the scent.

There Was A Man

There was a man
My father said
Who walked on water
Saying he was the Son of God.

There was a man
My father said
Who taught of love and peace
Healed the sick and raised the dead.

There was a man
My father said
Who gave his life for us
And died nailed to a cross.

Midnight Hour

This midnight hour
Makes pride fall weeping
Allowing grief full reign
Breaking asunder
All that kept me sane.

Ravenous wolves howl fiendish
Snapping at my heels
Chasing the blooded prey
Down dark twisting tunnels of the mind.

Oh, come back to me
For you are the best I can ever be.

Two Mothers

Israeli and Palestine conflict


Prostrate with grief
Rachel weeps for a dead son
Killed by a suicide bomber.

Prostrate with grief
Sarah weeps for a dead son -the suicide bomber
Who believed blood would set his people free.

Blood begets blood
Reprisal follows reprisal.
And there is no honour in death
Only tears of mothers for dead children.

Howl Down The Screaming Wind

Howl down the screaming wind
Stem the flow of innocent blood
Rescue lost souls from the whirlpool's trap
Floundering deadly among thunderous waves
Dashed and broken on jagged rocks.

War mongers fury swirls out of control
Silencing prayers for peace
Lies are told to quell war's panic
Inmates run the asylum
And from the madness comes our destruction.

Young Soldier

The young soldier's gone
Forever lost
To a mother's kiss
And sibling's playful taunt.

He held the line
Stood fast without retreat
Controlled the fear
And faced the enemy.

When they heard
In the town where he was born
They lined the streets
As his hearse was driven bye.

With heads bowed they wept
For a young soldier
Who for flag and country
Fell into the eternal arms of Glory.

Stag At Bay

Standing forlorn
Alone, miserable, hiding in a thicket
Bloody and weary
Defeated for his harem
By a younger stronger stag.

No longer king
Waiting for wounds to heal
Vowing to fight again
Bringing the young pretender down
Chasing him from the herd.

The hunting wolves howl
And he lifts his head in dread
Knowing they have found his scent
And prepares to meet them
Fighting his last battle.

London's Heart

(Terrorist attack Friday 7th July 2005)


London's heart lies bleeding
Her citizens are grieving
And again she took the blows
Standing firm with spirit unbroken.

Londoners suffered the blitz
Nazi Doodlebugs and V2 rockets
The IRA terrorist bombers
Survived united not broken.

Terror will not crush her proud heart
She will never surrender to infamy
Standing for Freedom and Democracy
Against those who would dominate the world.

Guardians

(God bestowed intelligence to save not destroy)


We are guardians of our planet
Playing the role of God
Selecting which species survive
Polluting the atmosphere
Burning forests and laying waste
Speeding ever faster global warming.

We factory farm to stock our larders
Hunting endangered species to extinction
Breeding our population out of control
Insisting on culling other species
But Man is the only creature
Who wages war and kills for pleasure.

Britain's Feral Children

In savage packs they roam and terrify
Lording over housing estates and city centres
Gangs with knives and guns.

Hunting from the shadows with hoods up
They prey upon the weak and elderly
Taunting and abusing, daring to stab and shoot.

What happened to discipline in the home
Are the parents feral like the sons?
Where is the punishment to tame the beasts.

Who passed laws and let the hunting packs loose
And took away a parent’s right to punish
Stopped teachers from taming the feral child.
