Dyr Docked

I suppose he had dreams

Of going to sea

Whoever he was

Who squatted

In a derelict boat

Dry docked in

A storage yard,

The bumpers were out

Around the bow

Ropes were draped

As if he knew how

To tie things up

Should water ever

Find him.

Six Months

He said when he

Wakes up in the morning

He’s still here

And that’s good

Enough for him,

Can’t argue with that …

And the day rolled

From flat soup,

Pistachio shells in navels

That must be innies,

How else do you

Explain the collection

Of broken containers,

To labels for this,

That and everything

And why we are not

Joiners and followers

Of movement with

Manifestoes.

In The Long Dark Shadows

In The Long Dark Shadows

In the long dark

Shadows

Of a psychopath’s

Lies

Young girls

Sobbing

Can you hear their

Cries,

And it’s sad,

For at times

There’s little

You can do,

Because many in

Power and authority

Are psychopaths

Too.

It is estimated that from 1% to 4% of the population are psychopaths. If you have had dealings with these people there are support groups. One is  …

Unsaid

I didn’t really know

What to say

That time

Back on that day,

Oh there was

I love you

Back and forth,

But it was tentative

At best,

Perhaps it was all

Too new

Too soon,

And yet,

I still get a

Surging feeling

When I see you,

When you’re near,

When I think about you,

And I still don’t know

What to say,

Maybe it’s better

In a way

Some things perhaps

Are better left

Unsaid.

Hare And Weasels

Hare wrote a book

That simply was

Quite scathing

Revealing what weasels

Are really all about,

Everyone stuck

In various religious theory

Would not believe

And looked at Hare

With doubt,

Of course

The weasels smirked

And gloated

And as Hare

Had noted,

The disbelieving gives

The psychopaths

More clout.

Heads Down

They came in

For coffee,

Moved chairs around

Until they were all comfy,

Pulled out their electronic

Devices

And for the most part

Ignored one another,

Except for the odd

Chuckle and upward

Glance

Attempting to show

Someone else something

On their tiny screen,

Something that garnered

Only superficial attention,

And then it was heads down

Like a herd of grazing cattle.
