The 'Poem A Day' Project ~ Day 260

There is always great debate
About what things are worth
And mainly should professional footballers be paid the earth
Some say they get too much
A ridiculous amount for their job
Just ‘cos they can kick or strike or tackle or catch or lob
Should one football player
Earn more in a year
Than a whole hospital of nurses and doctors get near
But I say they should have it
They need the money it’s true
How else can they buy their way out of the law breaking they do?

The 'Poem A Day' Project ~ Day 204

I stand surveying the angles
And slopes of the land
A plan in my mind and a golf club in my hand

The ball is waiting ready
To live its final putt
This shot is gonna happen, I feel it in my gut

I check the wind direction
And condition of the green
I weigh up all the angles, want the shot to be clean

I plant my feet real sturdy
And eye the balls route
I slow my breathing down as I prepare to shoot

I swing the club back slowly
Now going for the kill
But slip and clip the edge of the plastic windmill

The 'Poem A Day' Project ~ Day 193

I’m a traffic cone up a tree
Someone on a drunken spree
With all of their might
Gave me new height
Here for all to see

I’m a traffic cone up a tree
Not really where I should be
I’m usually found
Much nearer the ground
Lined up uniformly

I’m a traffic cone up a tree
It makes me feel rather free
To have reached a place
No other cone’ll grace
Fills me with real glee

I’m a traffic cone up a tree
Plastic and bright orangey

The 'Poem A Day' Project ~ Day 138

I want a poem that is quick
Something easy is the trick
So I think that I
Will have my first try
At doing a Limerick

The layout is very well tested
It’s simple and cannot be bested
The rhythm is neat
Fits the words to a treat
And not much mind powers invested

I am quite enjoying this style
After giving it a fair trial
It’s a quick way to write
Night after night
But’ll grow stale after a while

So maybe it isn’t my fate
To use this layout so great

The 'Poem A Day' Project ~ Day 201

It’s odd how people with money claim it isn’t everything
Those who buy what they want, say its not enough to bring
Fun or laughter to your life, that having lots of cash
Is a hindrance to finding joy, something to make you crash
That wealth shields off contentment, making it hard to find
True satisfaction or a feeling of peace inside your mind
Can anyone be at ease while rich, I really do not know
But if someone wants to fund me I will definitely give it a go

Money can’t buy happiness
When all is said and done
Then again nor can poverty
But money is a lot more fun

The 'Poem A Day' Project - Day 85

I wake up at 6pm
Wash and dress and shave and then
Get in my car, to work I drive along
I’m working throughout the night
Though I’m still feeling bright
Even though midnight has come and gone

Late night radio has no DJ
Line of music just plays away
And no one else seems to be awake
Working hard the time flies past
Keep on going until at last
The sky grows light and the dawn starts to break

Work all finished heading home
The streets are empty I drive alone
The sky is blue and the birds start to shout
I drag myself back into bed
Try to rest my tired head
While my body clock tries to work it out

The 'Poem A Day' Project - Day 19

I wanna go home
I don't wanna die
I didn't even start this stupid fight
Whatever the reason, killing don't seem right
I don't wanna die
I wanna go home

I wanna go home
I don't wanna die
The reasons and facts all tend to confuse
Fighting for land that I will never use
I don't wanna die
I wanna go home

I wanna go home
I don't wanna die
I'm tired of shooting and blasting and running
And killing and choking and falling and gunning
I don't wanna die
I wanna go home

The 'Poem A Day' Project - Day 66

Its odd how small the world’s become
With travel for almost anyone
Its easy to explore somewhere new

Just take one click on a web site
And you have just booked your flight
Ready to expand your worldview

But when you travel keep in mind
To have respect for what you find
And always try to be a good guest

Imagine a stranger in your home
Feeling he has the right to roam
Nosing about and being a real pest

Laughing at your colour scheme
Stomping round in boots unclean
Telling you your food tastes weird

The 'Poem A Day' Project ~ Day 194

I don’t understand why all the fuss
I didn’t actually hit that bus
I think you just worry too much
When you hear me ride the clutch
It may seem fast from your seat
But in my car my powers complete
My style of driving please don’t question
I think red lights are just a suggestion
When playing chicken I never lose
I know the driving dont’s and do’s
Talk on the phone you’ll end up dead
So as I drive I text instead
I weave through traffic as I dash
Speed limits are for people who crash
They don’t apply to someone like me
Who controls their car perfectly
I’ve never had an accident on the roads
Though it is true I have seen loads

Happy Dog 3

I’m a happy dog at the park
I yelp and woof and bark
Along with the sound
Us dogs run around
I’m a happy dog at the park

I’m a happy dog at the park
You may think me off the mark
But I’m not by mistake
In the mud by the lake
I’m a happy dog at the park

I’m a happy dog at the park
I hunt like a big hairy shark
When the bunnies trail
Puts a spring in my tail
I’m a happy dog at the park

I’m a happy dog at the park
I’m glad that some bright spark
