The Bullet and the Bomb

The bullet and the bomb stopped arguing

About their respective worth

Their battles won

Their battles lost

Their impact on the earth

About which had laid the most to rest

Caused greatest misery

And which had caused the greatest harm

In defeat and victory

When both agreed they both agree

They neither win or lose

As both the bomb and bullet

Never friend or foe side chose

So in human affairs of stopping hearts

They’re firmly on the fence

As both are used to reinforce

Attack and defence

Then both agreed they both agree

Their use makes little sense


The Better Day

Today is the day when

For everyone on earth

The world becomes a better place

People will celebrate

Say what a great day this is but

Because it is a better place for everyone

Some of that everyone will ensure their better

Is a better better as,

Like they will say,

Our better has always been better

For those new to better

It will be hard to argue

As those who’s better is better

Have better arguments

Always have

Always will


I’m not too bad at poetry

I can usually find a rhyme

As on my iPhone I’ve an app

That I consult all the time

It’s comes in very handy when

I writers block combat

I’d tell you more about it but

My battery has gone

Time Travel

I’ve tried to study physics

And to spacetime comprehend

So I can travel back in time

And ascending age descend

But no matter how hard I try

I cannot time delay

And so I face the prospect of

A large milestone birthday

As I have travelled round the sun

For far too many years

Aging so disgracefully as

The you-know-what day nears

So to day delay I’ll study

And with luck I’ll comprehend

How to alter space and time

So I can age descend

Although I think I must have failed

To invent a time machine

To break the laws of physics and

Time laws contravene

As if I’d been successful

I would already know

How to invent a time machine

To reverse times one way flow

Or did I somehow manage to

Reverse time engineer

And from somewhere in the future I’ve

Time reversed to here

It all sounds rather sci-fi  

So l face the reality

The science of time travel is   

A sci-fact mystery  

And as the day is finally here

Unhappy milestone to me
