Childrens Story

Do you know any children that laugh at things like  ‘Farts and Poo? ’  These are  kids that you might catch sniggering with their friends and suddenly go silent when a parent get within hearing range.
These are kids that absolutely love secrets and rude noises.. Children that eagerly approach bedtime knowing that Dad is going to read them such a story.  Secret  stories that they are not supposed to tell mum about.
These are not evil stories,  but short tales that encompass strange and unusual, but not  unimaginable body function  that could well be described as “Rude”

How Horrible

How Horrible could it have been?

I recall watching the Queens Coronation on Television  in 1953.  Our TV had a large screen, at least it must have been because My mother and father watched it with me and my brothers and we were not the only people in the room.  I do not think any of our neighbors had a bigger screen

tv I have no recollection of waiting for 15 minutes for the T.V. to warm up.  I expect it was extremely fast because I have no memories of anybody getting fed up of waiting and walking out of the room.
I know that the images on screen were absolutely amazing because one of my earliest memories is of myself hiding behind the front room curtain absolutely petrified at what I am told was the early T.V. series called Quatermass.
I can remember many years later when I was watching my first 23 inch Television that the screen was huge.  To be truthful I do not remember  if I watched the Test Match in colour or back and white. Although I am fairly sure they played with a red ball.

I write this because I was talking to a young person the other day who said “It must have been horrible to look at those tiny screens in the old days”.
“NO”   I told her. “ It was far less horrible than it is today”.

Ode to Grandad

Granddad isn’t doing much these days, he rarely does a thing
He seems unlike his old self, quiet, maybe Reminiscing.

I hope he’s gently rocking peaceful  in an old chair by the fire
he’s probably climbing mountains or recalling old desire

He’s been and done most everything and everywhere, and how.
hope he’s happy and contented to be re-living it all now.

He might be on a troopship, battling a crazy storm
could be fighting game fish on Queensland’s Capricorn.

Nothing that he ever did was ‘one time event that passed ‘
while legs get  frail and pulse is week. His memories have last.

He told me once not long ago. ‘My memories on its knees
I still recall Just everything. .  just not where I left my keys.

Getting married is like buying a shiny brand new car
you can floor the throttle pedal, spin the wheels,
Polish it, or buff it up, feel like a movie star.
We can even let the top down, whatever dream appeals.


The whining from the gearbox, never evident when new
with batteries that spark it into life each time with extra surge
It is exiting just to know it’s there, even when its out of view
This brand new acquisition excites and thrills each urge.

But time removes the sheen, and the speedo‘s, winding on
the constant clunk of changing gears, the heater fails to work
New models in the showroom, ‘Oooh that one looks like fun’
The old one to the garage, placed with the gears in “park”

Highly Intelligent


Said the wisest of all creatures and cleverness the owl
“I am invented some new colors that none of you can see.”.
The rabbit asked “does it look quite pretty? … can we see it now.?”
“I doubt it very much”, said Owl  “your not intelligent like me“.

The Owl preened out his feathers and proudly puffed his chest.
with Rabbit, looking at intelligence upon the highest limb.
“Tell me lowly Rabbit, what it is you see, when looking at the best”
“I see a crazy bird, who doesn’t understand a single bloody thing”.

Lost Chance

last chance

I heard it said that “Henry, never had a chance.”
So I pondered where it went.
Did it simply fade into the distance?
Then, how does one prevent
The hopelessness of circumstance
and loss without intent.
Sometimes it’s gone,  without a second Glance.

I’m pointing myself nowhere

It is easier following footsteps when the toe prints at the front
Unless you’re quite adept at going backwards,  but I’m not
Backward facing footprints always head to where they’ve been
I could have even traveled there. . . Maybe I  just forgot .


I doubt that I will ever pace a path that’s not been trod before
and If ever get there I will surely be surprised.
I might just take a pile of wood and tools to build a door
Then lock the thing behind me. Locked in my own demise.

But knowing how I travel I will probably lose the key
And lock myself in somewhere nobody else will ever go.
Then maybe I will realize the stupidity that’s me.
And likely loose myself to death, and no one else will know.

Bugger Bugger everything, I am staying on the Highway
I have never known quite where I am, plus I’m regularly Lost
I’m better suited more to never  doing things my own way
I’m a go in circles type of guy but I can’t afford the cost.

Memory of my Mother.

When we met or talked or touched
I always  I felt the Blue
For there are many colours. .  I felt them all in you.


 I have touched the yellow, I have held the green
And I have felt the pain of white
When your colours were not   seen

When once I knew your rainbow, I fondly  grasped the red
I fully owned  your colours
and all my pains were dead .

Truth Bewilders me

You can tell me what you like. I rarely give it value
Information I think, needs to float around my head.
Quick acceptance seems to me immature or callow
I just assign the words I hear quite simply “what you said”.


It is not that I’m distrusting, Especially of you
But sometimes I need back up, evidence
Confirming all I hear or “what you said” is true.
If I look at you bewildered, then tell me “what makes sense”.

 Key (truth evolves)
