Television.

Television:
Super Vision,
With or without
Supervision.
Far better than
Superstition
Or even
Intuition.

More than a thousand channels:
Discovery,
History,
Biography, Sci Fi, Sky, Virgin....

See South America,
The Himalayas,
China, Australia
And Timbuctoo.

Just about anything,

A Poem.

A poem, to me:
A statement, speech, a view.
Onomatopoeic metaphor
About me and you.
Plotted and planned,
Or just a thing I do.
From instress to inscape,
Hopkins-like,
So very, very true.
A riotous myriad of colours,
Scented roses,
Touches new.
In verses and stanzas,
Pocket pictures you see;
Iambic rhythms and pulses,
Traditional verses,
Or free.
Time for tea.

Love, Sex and Tagliatelle Taglines.

We love our sex,
Romance,
And television soaps.
Those films, thrillers
Documentaries about nature, animals, children, horses,
Dogs and cats.
God, Death, religion, space;
People, friends and family;
Relationships;
Dreams, hope, heart;
Life;
Thoughts and feelings;
Books, novels, poems and poetry.
Pain and pleasure;
Black and white;
Good and evil;
Food and drink;
And of course,
Italian cuisine.
Celebrities like Beckham,

Not Poetry as we Know It!

I dream of Cyberspace,
Where fantasies come true.
At least that’s what they tell me:
Into pastures new.

They tempt us with their adverts,
And make us click and click.
Encourage us to banter:
They must think we are thick.

New friends, they are suggested;
They make us write and write.
Addicted to their forums,
We type all through the night.

We make our social networks,
And play those silly games.
Our souls sold to the Devil,
We even lose our names.
