Suicide of Civilisation

Suicide of Civilisation


I wander up hill and down dale

Looking for the street called Straight,

Passing though bogs and sawn down logs –

Signs of progress while nations regress –

Where bare sand erodes in the wind

And deserts overtake the forests;

Cities and towns mushroom at every turn,

Concrete jungles whose heat smothers

The very air we breathe, the air we need,

Until mankind turns on itself

Playing the blame game to the death.

Head vs Heart

Head vs Heart 


I was the only one

The lonely one 

Living inside my head 

Eyes wide shut 

Blinded by tears 

And nameless fears 

Then I found you in my heart 

And knew I was not alone

You brighten my shadows

And lighten my pain 

You keep me going 

Again and again

My faithful Father

For ever

The Watchers


There are eyes in the sky 

As the birds fly

Up and down,  back and forth,

To and fro, 

Many voices calling,

Singing, squawking, 


What a fuss

Watching us

Watching them

Causing mayhem!

The Veil

The Veil

Old eyes seeing new

Brighter colours in my view

Now the veil is drawn aside 

And my eyes are open wide 

I see in sunlight and in shade

All the beauty God has made.

The Cat

The Cat



Golden orbs shine in the dark,

Unblinking, slinking close to the ground,

Aware of the slightest sound,

A distant howl,yowl,growl

Will cause me to pause.


Stalking is my way of walking,

Head held high,

Nose in the air – hoity-toity –

Who do you think you are?

No, I don’t want a pat –

Can’t you see I’m a cat?

Independence is my name,

Your attention is my game;

I will suffer, but only when I’m in the mood

And also only if you’re very, very good.

Love lost and found 

Hope beckons this time round,

A shining light in the darkest night,

As a cloud vaporises into wisps of white 

And delicate strands holding hands

Reach down to where we stand.

You are 

The air that I breathe,

The life that I live,

The sun and the rain,

The joy and the pain;

You are

The moon and the stars that shine,

The seasons that intertwine 

Reflecting Your glory,

Connecting Your majesty 

Throughout this immensity.

The President

The President 


We have a president

The likes of which there’s been no precedent, 

His gamesmanship appears unequalled

As he has fun, fun, fun at our expense, 

Winning right across the board, 

Avoiding recompense for never-ending scandals,

Nefarious wheelings and dealings,

The nation’s embarrassment on his behalf,

But – no matter –

Who has the power to unseat this ‘king’

(Who makes use of the royal ‘we’)?

We, the people, have the power to make him cower

As we uncover the extent of his trickery,

Unmask and turn this slippery man into history!

Lightning flickers between cloud layers,

Electricity crackles a soft warning,

‘This will get worse before morning.’

The night sky is alive

While a maelstrom of humanity scurries beneath –

And then –

With a Velcro RRRRRip the sky opens up

And great swathes of water gush down.

Thank you, God, for the rain we pray. 

Thank you, God.
