Johnny Sweed's Blues
Posted by RC James - 12-5-17 15:49 - 0 comments

I looked out this morning, blues ‘s far as I could see
mmmm-hmmmmm-mm, blues ‘s far as I could see
checked my mail, blues was all addressed to me

I went an’ picked up my guitar blues fell out like rain
Yahh – ohh – mmmhmmm – mm fell out like rain
An empty pillow your side ‘a the bed all that remain

I’m gonna ride on down on the coast at Gulfport
Ride on down, down on the coast at Gulfport
Swim on out ‘til these blues sink to tha ocean floor

Ain’t goin’ nowhere, just spinnin’ my back wheels
mmm-hah-mmm-mm-mm spinnin’ my back wheels
you evah had tha heartache you know how it feels

change your mind baby, better keep it to yourself
oh yah, baby, mmmmm-hmm- keep it to yourself
used to these blues now, I don’t want nothin’ else

keep it to yourself
I’m used to these blues
I don’ want nothin’ else

Must get kitted out,
to get co-operation,
for fat cat, catscan!

I must ‘paws’ for thought,
before a catastrophe
furthers a lost cause.

To categorise
a fine catscan catalogue,
is the cat’s miaow!

Just a Twosome.!

A Nonet. “You?”

I’m sure I saw one that I thought you?
Though but briefly seen, passing through,
walking past, was surely you?
But instantly I knew
when they queried who
bid them adieu?
If not you
was true?

A Reverse Nonet. Me!

just me.
You will see
no one can be,
exactly like me.
As most folks clearly see.
Being singularly Me!
So when you see, one thought to be
Me? Be advised, it is not Me!

Trying something new on a cold, windy day. Much harder than it looks - so I find! Ciao Denis.

X 10 for Nov 22 - Daniel

In a festive wool cap? Can I write
that my wisp of a brother is right?
Santa's sparkling eyes,
sapphires crossing the skies?
Thank you, no! Just a dream in the night

The Future Foretold?
Posted by Rhymer - 11-25-17 13:49 - 1 comments
MMs Challenge November 22nd.

When a myriad of sapphires sparkled bright:
in syncopated twinkling, one Festive night,
traversed - for long their universal right -
the Milky Way, I was overcome with delight.
Wrapped warmly - the night was cool -
in a shawl, naught but a wisp of wool,
I was beguiled and began to dream.
In my reverie, I hatched a scheme
whereby, I’d ride a comet into space
on a journey to a far distant place,
to see galaxies, in nebula profusion,
fly by in kaleidoscopic confusion.
Seemingly my dream became reality,
as planets and stars, flashed by me!
Though I knew not one from the other,
suddenly one, surely earth’s twin brother?
A mirror image, flying by in blurred haste,
was seen as naught but a desolate waste!
Even now, as I recall my dream and write,
I shudder! Such a forsaken, barren sight,
and the bleakest land, I have ever seen!
Was it a sign, that earth, verdant green,
will be as this, unless we change our ways
to stay the spoiling, that’s rife these days?
Will our unique oasis, drifting in solitary state
suffer the same perceived, lifeless fate
that befell every planet known to man?
Today, I thank my lucky stars that I can
enjoy the many gifts earth offers me.
As for my dream? May it never become reality!

Is it right to give thanks for a dream;
write a wisp of a song? I would deem
festive brother who tries
pulling wool over eyes
while his sparkle with that sapphire gleam.

words used: right, thank, dream, write, wisp, festive, brother, wool, sparkle, sapphire
