I Regret

I lie in bed and think
I wish I had become a teacher
I’ve been thinking that
for more than thirty years

Tranquil hamlet

I exchanged the buzz of Wimbledon
For the tranquil hamlet, Cherry Hinton
I have no regrets
Its made me forget
The hustle and bustle of London

Being Smug

I exchanged the buzz of Wimbledon
For the tranquil hamlet of Cherry Hinton
I have no regrets
Its made me forget
The hustle and bustle of London

Peseverance

If you want to succeed at anything
in Life
you’ve got to strive
Stay focused
and, be extremely dedicated

Then
one day
someday
success
will surely come your way

Gauging The Truth

She was incredibly sweet
And incredibly beautiful
Or was she?

Her husband insisted, he knew different
And as a consequence constantly looked elsewhere

Not knowing how to cope, she flew into a jealous rage
Whenever she saw my husband, amongst other men
Love their wives regardless of what they looked like

It was only then that I really gauged
The true limit of the sweet and beautiful portrait she displayed

How to Make an Absolute Killing

Everyone but everyone wants to own a property in London
If theres a slight economic boom anywhere - in, say, India
Then, Indians will want to buy a place over here
Not in Paris. Not in the US
Not in places like Amsterdam
It's got to be London

People from every nook and cranny of the world
Where ever Britain had it's colonies
Are drawn like magnets to the 'Mother Country.'

I've lived in London for over 30 years
The Property market is simply booming
My palm is more than itching
So, when I sell my house
I hope and expect
To make an absolute killing!

I Spy

Heading off to Calais
on a dreary day
to start a family holiday in Paris

Picture it:
Parents. Sally, Amy and pets
all crammed in with
sandwiches, biscuits, drinks, titbits and luggage
into a non-discript carriage

It starts to rain
What a shame
All of us are cooped in

The car comes to a standstill
behind a very long line of vehicles
Horns blow
We feel low
But, there’s no respite

On hindsight

No one believes: in that well worn saying
It'll be all right on the night

Mention the five rings
or that the Olympics are coming to London
this much is absolutely certain
considerable panic and loads of hand wringing

Predictions of unfinished venues
Spiraling costs
Log jam
Gridlock
Pandemonium
Watch out
Ticket touts about
Journalists whipping up panic
over the threat of terrorists

Fiddlesticks!
99% of the Olympics

The Conundrun

The real irony of the situation as the world exists in the year 2007, is this:

Certain influential
politicans in the West
are obsessed with the deeds of
one
Osama Bin Laden

He who had at one time
been hailed a ‘Hero’
by the Americans
for helping
them oust the Russians from Afghanistan

Let me tell you that
the West began to heap
inumerable weapons on him and his colleagues
in the 1980s
without knowing anything
about him or any of them
