Both Sides

Both sides in the American election are calling each other supid, that’s par for the course.

Will they choose the wrong horse?

Hillary Clinton is coming out of the woodwork, she rears her ugly head again.

Why not Monica Lewinsky then?

She has some experience of the white house.

Michell Obama looks nice in a blouse.

Who will win the game of dirty tricks?

That’s politics.

The media may be in for a big surprise.

They tell lies.

I Write

I write from time to time.


When I have time.

Quite often, now and then.

Pencil, not pen.

I transfer my writing to cyberspace.

Your face.

Some like my writing, I know.

So I go.

That’s all I have to say.


For now, anyway.

Good day.

American Election

The Democrats have been infiltrated by mad people madder than Trump.

They give me the hump.

Trump seems human some people don’t.

I am not American I can’t vote I won’t.

The election is not until November, a lot can change.

Who will cast the deciding vote, a cowboy on the range?

Straws in the wind say things may turn out well.

People may not vote for Hell.

When You

When you say you believe what you don’t believe who do you deceive?

Could it be you, no, you know that is not true.

If you tell a lie often enough people believe it, so said Goebbels, Nazi guff.

When you fool yourself you’ve had it, its over, that’s that.

Bang goes everything, your dreams fall flat.

Welcome to the gutter, nutter.

Talk 1000

Me: Of the religions I know about, which are not much, Hinduism seems the most down to Earth and practical.

Michael: That’s what I think too.

Me: 80 per cent of it is about everyday things like getting on with people and doing a good job.

If religion is not about everyday life what is it about?

Michael: Nothing.

World 2

Why don’t women run the world, maybe they don’t want to.

If you are a woman, do you?

Would you be Catherine the Great or a female Chairman Mao?

Tell other women how.

Margaret Thatcher and Mrs. Ghandi rose to the top.

It’s a rough world, you might get shot.

If you can put up with that sure, be a cowboy or cowgirl.

A female John Wayne, give it a whirl.

Exceptions are exceptional.

Good gal.

I apologise for being a bit crazy.

Also, I’m lazy.

Must I confess all my sins?

The list begins.

Say I was famous and I died.

Don’t go on and on about it, so I tried.

So what, I’m dead, you’re not.

I’m dead, don’t bore other people to death.

It will happen to you yet.

Do you love boredom, a solemn occasion?

Count me out, don’t speechify.

When you go on like that you make me die.

I note one line had no rhyme, Confucius was a famous Asian.

You and me are brothers like Cain and Abel.

I could drink you under the table.

However, enough biblical analogies.

Nature is rivers, mountains, trees.

Not forgetting me and you.

Monkeys too.

I haven’t time to list everything.

Try an encyclopedia, a history book, a Christmas cracker, any darn thing.

That should keep you going.

White Christmas mentions snowing.

In theory I am brilliant, in practice no.

There you go.

I have various friends, you can’t have too many.

Have you any?

Life is not perfect, who said it would be?

Not me.

Perfection is an impossible goal.

Have I a soul?

How to shorten the dole queues, open more hatches.

In the old days doors had latches.
