Converging Concepts

Maths, art, science, literature, philosophy, religion are converging to a single point.

A Russian scientist said that, whom the saints anoint.

Speaking for myself, I concur.

I who infrequently err.

Love is where you find it wherever that may be.

An old pop song or a cup of tea.

Did Adam and Eve do wrong or did they make a mistake?

The Reader’s Digest said that in my years of heartache.

I made mistakes in my time.

Who is without crime?

Everything should rhyme.

I do be and I does be talking rot.

That’s not all I’ve got.

Whoever is responsible, thanks a lot.

I think this poem is rather good but who am I to say?

Have it your way.

Perhaps the last two lines should be in parentheses or, as you might say, bracket.

If you have a bad child do you smack it?

Midnight Hour

At the end of the day it’s the midnight hour, that’s self evidently true.

I’d believe it if I were you.

Twelve midnight, not half past two.

Truism is a word you may not have heard.

It means self evidently true, not false, absurd.

One and one makes two.

That’s an example, a free sample.

We’re born, we live, we die, all that stuff.

If you don’t like it, tough.

There’s no getting away from it, the truth is true.

Believe it or not its up to you.

To believe in the true.

I would if I were you.

I do.

It

It all came out of nothing or almost nothing or so they say and made what we see today.

It they are right it will eventually implode after all they said it did explode.

Fragments returning to their preternatural state, is that our fate?

Well yes and no don’t say I told you so.

Once upon a time a long time ago all continents were one.

What, even the Sun?

Here I refer to the magical number one.

It’s a small step from infinity, goodbye, I’ve got to run.

Irish Soul Reborn

Irish soul in the freezer in the fire.

Can my soul go higher?

Before I expire?

Or tire.

I wish to bring the truth to you, what’s a man to do?

Between me and you.

Here is Hell and here is Heaven.

I know them both since I was seven.

How may I turn them around to show the music, lovely sound?

I ask oh my task neverending eternity.

Who am I only me.

I sailed the sea.

Free me.

And thee.

Screaming Headlines

Oh God is it the end of the world right now?

I’m not ready anyhow.

You mean like that’s it?

Time to quit?

I have things to do, I don’t know about you.

If I believed what you say I’d call it a day.

Heck, its not that bad.

One of us is mad.

Is it your job to make us worry?

Be in a hurry?

Pull the other one, its got bells on it.

I’m not ready to quit.

That’s it.

My Music Career

to Kevin, ken
Hi,

I am seriously considering using a digital music distributor, EmuBands, to distribute a cd I made, mastered by BeardFire in Dublin, me singing old Irish songs. EmuBands have a lot going for them compared to others in their field, including excellent customer relations.
Prior to mastering I sold or gave away ten or more of this cd, called Great Irish Songs, to a demographic varied in age, gender and nationality, locally, getting a favourable or very favourable response.
Here is what Rohan at BeardFire said:

All in all I think it’s sound really good, the performances are lovely, great song selection. Has the feeling of sitting around the kitchen singing the great old songs, very nice.

As a rather old fashioned person I (David) like physical cd’s but download sales are much easier and cheaper all round, for me and the public.
Apparently older, whatever that is, people do download music, not all being technophobes.
EmuBands seem to distribute to all download sites, including new ones appearing from time to time, at no extra cost to the artist.
Its a case, I suppose, of run up the flag and see if anyone salutes.
All songs on my cd (or download) are out of copyright. I can send it to you both by we-transfer so you could see what I’m talking about.
I know zero about publicity.
I suppose I will go ahead anyway irrespective of naysayers. I am aware of ISRC’s and UPC’s and Shazam, all included in EmuBand’s single price, but usually extra charges from other digital distributors.
Ignore this email if busy or so inclined, but, as people, say there’s no harm in trying.
I have not given up writing so I have more than one string to my bow. As Fritz Kreisler may or may not have said.
I won’t know if its worth doing unless I do it.
If you know the future, tell me.

David (Tich) Ennis

to me, Kevin

Go for it!

Lost

I left my belongings at the gate and hurried inward to my fate.

I rang my sister about my brother and did one or two or more things other.

Then I said, where are my things, who knows what misfortune brings.

I looked high and low and on the floor, then gave up, no more, no more.

I settled for a substitute, bitter fruit.

Later I went out again and discovered my belongings then.

Cigarettes, a lighter and a pen.

A lapse of memory occurred.

This is not my final word.

I found what’s lost, oh welcome home!

Turn of the tide, bedecked with foam.
