If all the writing stopped
And all the reading ceased
My brain would end up popped
For words are my release

If I was still with you
I wouldn't be right here
But I have things to do
That you would not allow

And fame I do not need
My audience is one
I think that I succeed
If I have had some fun

And if my fame is found
Remember what you said
Why must you write things down
Just keep them in your head


Poetry is not my living
Poetry is more than fun
Poetry a way of giving
Word and thought to anyone

Poetry express desire
Poetry potential spark
Poetry can light a fire
Flame to burn away the dark

Poetry puts rhyme in reason
Poetry is discipline
Poetry is caging freedom
Thoughts I capture held within

The Farm

And blowing in the wind is where the answer's meant to be
But I was blown to here and back by what you said to me
The wind of change was Mary Poppins landing in the street
So give the starving tuppence if you have enough to eat
The question is our future and it's dangling by a thread
But Damocles has gone and you're the thing I left unsaid
The double hedging bet was lost and all we have at stake
Are bleeding hearts the Queen of Tarts will liberally bake
How many roads I walked with you yet never at your side
The wolf who blew my mind but somehow left it all implied
I'm on the road to nowhere but the making sense has stopped
Cause Maggie's farm's reality when rabbit holes are dropped
Some people never see the ocean others wash ashore
Imagine all the people then consider them no more

The Guardian

If you can see the truth within the anger
If you can look at death and sense no fear
If you can see the dignity in labour
And know the reason each of us is here
If you can stop the pain and bring back laughter
If you can open hearts that long have shut
If you believe in happy ever after
And know the cards were never fairly cut
If you can bring some peace when hearts are racing
If you can whisper magic words in rhyme
Then you could the man the world is seeking
Who knows that love can stand the force of time
So take us from today into tomorrow
The guardian whose honour is a shield
Jerusalem rebuilt without the sorrow
Divided people come together healed


Oh my lover I am lost for words
The everything you give to me and more 
I could total up and make list
But you are not a man who’s keeping score
Winner for I put my trust in you
But you have loved me even I’m lost
Say that we are equal and well matched
And on your heart my name you have embossed
Love with you was never wild and loose
An all in order well considered ride
And every day I know that when I wake
You’ll be the man who’s always by my side
Lost for words and yet I want to say
I love you more with every passing day

More is maybe less

I want more or maybe less with you
More demands the body, mind and soul
Less might be the truth to make me whole
What we have right now will never do
Let’s be honest what are we about
Meeting of the minds when two is one
Just a moment’s superficial fun
Talk the truth and let’s remove the doubt
I could live without you easily
Though you brighten every single day
Independence always was my way
Do you feel the same regarding me
Bright your love like fever in your eye
Desperate in your all or nothing plan
Want me I’m the one and only man
Held so tight it makes me wonder why
Loose your grip or you will find me lost
Set me free and I might seek your nest
Choice is when you see me at my best
Bonds are almost never worth the cost
How I yearn for you when we’re apart
Breathing space so we don’t suffocate
Thoughts of you bring me ecstatic state
Now I’m free to offer you my heart
