I Once Knew a Man From Cornwall . . .

I once knew a man from Cornwall,

He managed a famous fish stall.

Then late there one night

Was something not right

And Syd was not seen there at all.

 

Now another man known as Ned,

Had always wanted Syd dead.

A stab in the back

A horrid attack

And now that stall’s full of bread.

 

I’ve heard that Ned had wife.

And evil were his skills with a knife.

The killing he’s done

But he’s not on the run

Because now he’s doing 20 to life!

A Cutting Death

 

He hides in the crowd

Afraid for his life

He curls up in panic

He knows there’s a knife.

 

He’s yanked to the fore

With nary thought

The cutting is quick

For those that are caught

 

The action is swift

Their life force is done

No more to shine

His days in the sun.

 

Death sweeps away

The thoughts and the cares

All that remains

Are  discarded hairs.

 

I’ll take just a trim

Off my shaky old head

So toss them aside

Those cut hairs are dead!

If You Were a Sign

 

If you were a sign

what would you say?

This place is open

and ready to play?

 

If you were a note

Then what would be written?

I think I’m in love,

I’m sure I am smitten?

 

If you were the sky

Would you be a cloud?

With hard hitting rain

And fog like a shroud?

 

Or would you be sunshine

With beams full of hope?

Gathering smiles

For people to cope?

 

Would your sign say hello

With welcoming arms?

A fist full of dollars

And a head full of charms?

 

We all wear a sign

For others to see?

Let yours be so bright

The world fills with glee!
