Addiction

Be strong


It sucks you in without you knowing
the signs of addiction already showing
before you know it you need a fix
checking for Twitter and Instagram hits


You can get anything just ‘ask google’
from fancy cakes to apple strudel
before you know it there’s no need to think
Just click on the key and go to the link


Our brains are shrinking to the size of a pea
It’s happening now to you and me
becoming slaves to our computer screen
It WILL drag you in, it’s guaranteed


It’s happening for real before our eyes
admit it or not - you’re radicalised
You must be strong and resist the urge
for mental health to be preserved


reminding us with a flash or bleep
rounding us up like a flock of sheep 🐑
‘leave it downstairs, don’t take it to bed’
have a good nights sleep instead


Constantly plugged into a virtual world
a way of life seemed now preferred
It’s pretty sad now - though it’s true
when reality is right here in front of you

A Glimmer of Hope

Everything Crossed!!!!!


Is it for real? Or, is it a rumour?
Boris has said we’re coming out sooner?
don’t hold your breath but could it be happening?
Is it to stop the economy collapsing?


Can’t even begin to hope it’s true
After everything we’ve all been through
we may be back to normal by spring
before we are well and truly unhinged


What do we do? How do we act?
are the odds against us stacked?
Can it ever be the same again
No one is certain a 100 per cent


we’ve been a long time in isolation
with no human contact or conversation
will have to learn new social skills
and come off all our anxiety pills


We’ll never forget the start of the twenties
Panic buying and toilet roll frenzies
The incredible science behind our jabs
Working wonders in their labs


It makes you wonder did this actually happen?
It’s hard now really to imagine
Pfizer and AstraZeneca the big tech brands
Our lives literally in their hands


We’re now getting jabbed in all sorts of places
Sharp eager eyes behind masked faces
So very lucky we live in a place
affectively saving the human race


This strain is bad enough - it’s been stated
It’s the new ones coming which have mutated
If we don’t eradicate it from the face of the earth
I feel the fatalities will be far far worse


we now see the light shining at the end
It was hard at first to comprehend
we have to wait - it’s been really tough
that day can never come soon enough 💕

It’s in the D.N.A.

We’re all different! 🤪


We’ve handled it differently so it seems
Rearranging our lives changing routines
brushing up skills Starting new hobbies
Sharing new interests with friends and colleagues


Friends on Facebook are running rings
Some have been doing remarkable things!
Landscaping, decorating, total rebuilds
amazing how they’ve acquired these skills?


Baking cakes like you’ve never seen
Soufflés and pastries, like a dream
Paintings that would put Picasso to shame
What will we do with this new found fame?


Some could qualify as Olympic runners
Others have been well, lazy buggers
everyone’s different in their own way
That’s why we all have a different D.N.A.


Some took it as a 12 month long vacation
That’s the sort of diverse nation
Anything goes - make no apology
Don’t look too much into the psychology

Charitable

Loyal to the end 🐾


We all love our pets
they are part of our lives
They are a member of the family
our children in disguise


We see all these adverts
asking for money to help out
with so many charities
Trying to get into your account


It’s easy to ignore
Even switching over channels
but, who will dig deep
for these loyal blameless animals?


We must all help out
In the best way we can
Because they’ll be so many more
after this lockdown began


It’s easy to look away
And let others sort it out
But, us British have a conscience
To see they never go without


They bring us so much joy
more than they’ll ever know
If we don’t keep these places going
There’s nowhere else to go


Maybe a Dog/Cat home near you
Which is small, struggling and local
Would really appreciate your support
funds and donations at their disposal


So any spare cash
Would be so gratefully received
To give our loyal friends
The love and care which, they all need 🐾





















Dog Thieves

Just sickening


What is it with people in this evil sick trade?
Stealing cats and dogs so they can be paid
Ruining peoples lives causing pain and distress
Snatching poor animals from their ‘safe house’ address


You are truly evil with absolutely no heart
for even considering in taking part
stealing these animals for profit and gain
Causing untold grief suffering and pain


You’re obviously damaged and hated by all
With only your depravity and greed installed
You destroy peoples lives and cause so much pain
Their lives never being the same again


You snatch them away causing untold terror
You are absolute scum beyond any measure
You crudely cut out their identity chips
Causing gut wrenching pain which you inflict


You’re not fit to live and be part of this life
You’re obviously completely dead inside
Seriously you should NEVER be allowed to breed
Because more scum like you - we really don’t need

Awake Again!!!!!

Arghhhhhhhh!!
The same old story, you go to bed
Crazy thoughts spinning in your head
laying there waiting hoping you’re falling
listening to your other half flat out snoring😼

when it’s late and dark outside
your mind goes into overdrive
tossing turning back and forth
mind ablaze with stupid thoughts


The night drags on it seems forever 🙀
In daylight things seem so much better
It doesn’t make sense but, would appear
worries in daytime just disappear


In the day I can sleep like a baby 👶
But come nightfall it never fails to amaze me
There’s no way I’ll go off tonight
The demons are waiting and ready to fight


They’re waiting for you to stop you sleeping
To keep you awake for no other reason
can’t they clear off and leave well alone?
and not make this a sleepless zone?


Maybe I’ll change and become nocturnal?
get rid of my eye bags and black circles
only trouble is what can you do all night?
just another dilemma to add to my plight!



























Valentine’s Day Thoughts 💕

Just one day off!!!


I don’t want flowers or, a soppy poem
It’s everyday love that I want showing
I don’t want a teddy or, a heart shaped balloon
As they disappear and deflate too soon


I want it to last longer than just a day
It’s cheaper than gifts, as there’s nothing to pay!
Something sincere coming straight from the heart 💜
Breakfast in bed would be a good start!


So, I’ll put my feet up for the rest of the day
You can massage my feet instead of a bouquet 💐
You can bring me endless cups of tea
That would mean much more to me


You put the dinner on and tidy up
Obviously in between bringing me cups☕️
Basically a day off from everyday chores
You’ll see my life is much different to yours


It could be a day to benefit us both
a calming atmosphere it would evoke
Maybe in the future would make you think twice
And we both could enjoy a more ‘contented’ life 😻

































Mother Nature

Look after me!!
The sun comes out
the winds still blow
The buds on flowers
predictably grow


The days weeks
and months are flying
The seasons change
In perfect timing


The world clock ticking
without missing a beat
Sunrise each morning
giving us light and heat


The tides still
ebbing high and low
The moon still sharing
that pale wintery glow


It’s business as usual
In mother nature’s life
It’s us stupid humans
causing all this strife


Will we ever learn?
from our blatant mistakes
How many more viruses
does it need to take?


Remember we all just
come and go
Earth has been here
longer than we’ll ever know


I think if we’re lucky
And we get out unscathed
We’ll fallback to old habits
and the problems we made


So maybe we should look
Take in and listen
Maybe reverse our errors
Into remission


Carry on with pollution
and wanton neglect
Mother Nature will evict us
Well - What do you expect?

Captain Tom

Heart 💜 of a lion


The epitome of how a real man should be
with decency, class and so gentlemanly
so much presence from such a small frame
deservedly becoming a household name


You had that quiet unassuming way
Impeccable manners always on display
Such stamina with the heart of a lion
with the presence of a gentle giant


You gave so much without complaining
encouraged others to start campaigning
Unbelievable what you have achieved
Gaining a knighthood which you received


You touched so many hearts and minds
In these dark times you lit up our lives
You’re the person we want if you hit rock bottom
A warrior who should never be forgotten


You gave your all right up til the end
Our inspiration and everyone’s friend
You were taken Captain Tom in a cruel twist
You were so loved 🥰 and will be truly missed
