LGBT

LGBT is the new normal, or so they say.

They have not gone away.

There’s no such thing as normal says one school of thought.

Also, everyone is mad or should be, what rubbish have I bought?

I thought of being a priest or a lawyer but then said no.

I don’t want to defend crooks and hearing confessions might pervert me, I have to go.

There I tell a lie, being a priest would not suit me.

I don’t know what does, please don’t shoot me.

Problems

Deal with your problems one at a time.

That is the message of this rhyme.

You can’t deal with too much at once.

You are not a dunce.

Take it one step at a time as you learned to walk.

Call on a friendly person, have a talk.

Maybe a teacher who used chalk.

You have it in you if you follow my advice.

Not everyone is nice.

Some are.

Let me be your guiding star.

There you are.

Important Fact

There are two forms of criticism, constructive and destructive, sometimes constructive is mistaken for the other.

If you want praise ask your mother.

So said AA Gill.

He rests in peace, his brain is still.

What use is overpraise unless you want to spoil a child?

I am not quite Oscar Wilde.

Those who can do and those who can’t teach, in a figure of speech.

Be your severest critic, its cruel to be kind.

I can’t make up your mind.

Have you got a match?

Yeah, my arse and your face.

Isn’t that a disgrace?

Real Life

In real life I sit and smoke and joke.

I am a pig in a poke.

Not sorry I spoke.

The other day I said if the queen awarded an honorary knighthood to me or the OBE, my friend laughed and said that will never be.

It could happen to a bishop or other man of the cloth.

Before the day of wrath.

God is coming back and he’s really pissed off said a car bumper sticker.

I like liquor.

Don’t drink and drive, you might spill it.

Joke, don’t kill it.

Music Maker

Should I tell the truth as it applies to me or is that boring wait and see.

If you sing and record at home your song needs mastering, or maybe poem.

Here is a boring fact, ISRC code, what’s that?

You need one on each track for identification on a radio station.

They are free if you look around and do no harm to the sound.

Whoever duplicates your CD if you make one puts them on at no extra cost.

No one told me all this, not all is lost.

I found out by asking, looking around and a little luck.

There are good guys out there who read the book.

When you’re starting you have to do everything for yourself including finding who to use for what.

Quite a lot.

If someone lived my life before could they tell me more?

Little by little I find how, your way would be different, a different hand on the plough.

I still have more to find out will I get there?

Yes, if I care.

So there.

What’s good is rare.

And who, you?

Maybe me too.

It is a case of doing things one step at a time.

As I wrote this rhyme.

This has been a blog, online diary, my recent history.

Why anyone else would be interested is a mystery.

I said nothing about how many cups of coffee I had nor a photo of my coffee cup.

Now at last I shut up.

Wonder

Don’t wonder about things, find out.

All you have to do is ask, that’s what its all about.

Its either yes or no or quick or slow.

If it doesn’t work try another way.

So I heard my mother say.

The world is full of wonder, magic, spells.

Pleasant and unpleasant smells.

I could say scent, you know what I meant.

Avoid the void of ignorance, look and find.

That way lies peace of mind.

Gentle

Be gentle with the paranoid, they become quite easily annoyed.

Do not expect reasonability, that’s not in their sensibility.

The paranoid are mad, that’s true but sad.

They mistrust you and your actions, they form themselves into factions.

They are not sane, causing death and pain.

They can be extreme, hear the news, see what I mean.

Tit for tat, that’s that.

They are sure they’re right, so they fight.

With all their might.

They want to be king in control of everything.

Me? I sing.
