All up for grabs

Turn the music on

Shake your booty

Entertain the masses.

Make more money than you know what to do with

Buy whatever you want

It’s all up for grabs

Others don’t matter

Your comfort comes first.

Baby’s born

Give her a name to stand out

She’ll be proud

Blast, you were not inventive enough

Someone’s already using that name.

No matter, you’re rich.

Trademark it baby, you’ve got to have it.

Sell products with your baby’s name

Everyone will want them, you’re a star.

So what if someone had a company before you had a baby

The answer is no. Sometimes you lose

Star, or not

Welcome back to earth baby!

Tweeting drama

Hope you’re all well. I’ve been away a lot recently and writing. A new novel is in the works as is an anthology of short stories. But look here, it’s my collection of poems, all contemporary. Happy reading!

Tweeting drama

A little bird appears, so innocent, so tempting.

Why not give it a go?

Something new

 

1,2,3. It’s that easy

Now what?

The little bird suggests

 

Soon following new people

Some interesting, others not so

Stalk away, everybody’s at it.

A special notebook

I still remember getting my first Moleskine. It was given to me by a special friend many years ago. As I looked at it, words were dancing on the pages, stories evolving.

As a child I loved stationery, books and notebooks were almost on an equal par.

I scribble all day long, I have notebooks strewn all over the place. Now, I just need one I could use in the shower or in the pool. Ideas come to me all the time, but especially so when I’m submerged by water.

Live life baby, live it on the Web

 

 

 

 

 

 

Want the latest news? Get them on the net. Gossip or real news, it’s all there.

Fancy a new bathroom, a new kitchen? Stuck for a recipe?

Perhaps you’re stuck yourself. Want a change of career?

Chances are, the answer is waiting for you on your screen.

 

Download your favourite book, look for a new read, a new song, or a film. It’s all up for grabs, just click the mouse and it’s yours.

Perhaps you have a problem concerning your children. Are they too bright, not bright enough, too unruly, rude?

Or are they ill? How do you tell? Should you be worried, you ask on a forum?

Perhaps, it’s your relationship that sucks. Husband not doing his part, not doing the dishes, not listening, pestering you for sex, not understanding your woes…

Ah you haven’t found love yet? Or you’re looking for a new one? a better one preferably.

It’s on line, love. Log on, the love of your life is waiting for you to connect. What are you waiting for?

Love at any age on Love.com

You see, you need never go out again. Fresh air is overrated. Live your life on the web.

Have I solved all your problems for now? 

Come back soon, I never sleep. I’m your friend, ready and waiting. Just start typing and I’ll even guess what you want. And if you’re on Facebook I will make suggestions for you. I know you better than anyone.

A little humour to start the day, inspired by an article I read, the booming trend of finding love on the Internet. Everyone’s at it, apparently. The over-50’s are gaining ground and even celebrities now take to the web to find love.

Even your favourite cause is on the web, come on, join in!

Rumours and lies

Rumours people start

Lies follow

Never knowing who they hurt

Never knowing what they’re saying

Today, it’s him

Tomorrow, it will be you

Sometimes, we laugh

Sometimes, we cry

It’s all part of the act, you tell me

Then rage, when it gets too close

They want to get so close, too close

They go on, not  knowing the truth

The truth is ours, our reality.


Any art can change the world

Any art can change the world, by changing consciousness

Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Read poet, publisher and owner of the renowned City Lights interview :

http://ow.ly/39LuZ ( The sixties blog)

Aside from being one of the most famous living poets in the United
States, Lawrence Ferlinghetti is an erudite publisher, a recognized
painter, and lately, he’s a little ticked off at the world. Who can
blame him? Fifty years ago he wrote: “I am waiting/ for the American
Eagle/ to really spread its wings/ and straighten up and fly right.”
Decades later he’s still waiting; it seems no one has heeded his
calls for change. With a massive ecological disaster, two costly
wars, and an economic depression, he might rightly say I told you so.
But who would listen? Poetry hardly draws the audiences that it once
did, much less the national poetry tours that Ferlinghetti speaks of.
