The finely bored eyes

glare above a sharp toothed mouth

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #283 #Customs and practices

Though the clocks have been put back one hour

I hope it will not affect adversely our

custom whereby we British pour

ourselves a cup of tea around four

on each weekday afternoon

often in the drawing room

although this demonstration of English taste

seems to have been rather displaced

such beverage would not be complete

without a tray of dainties to eat

and if you decided you would risk it

you could choose to dunk a biscuit

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #207 #Old farm lament

The old farmyard looks the same

as the old picture in the frame

but my eyes still fill with tears

as I remember all those years

when the sounds of horses filled the yard

and even though the work was hard

in the evening we would say

this will all be gone one day

and I would rather not be there

when the smoke from engines fills the air

and I know I can safely say

that all I once held dear has gone away

but I am happy because I understand

that this farm remains in good hands

as every other farm throughout this land

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #282

It has just occurred to me

that on a map of the world you see

by looking from right to left

you will go from East to West

if you move them up and down

you see the world from North to South

Opposites!

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #206 #Old faithful

I looked up to the sign and thought fancy that

someone has left an old straw hat

I wonder if the sun got in their eyes

and that was when they realised

the protection they’d enjoyed for so long

after all this time was sadly gone

and after they had a think about it

decided they would carry on without it

Adam when tempted

chose to taste forbidden fruit

cast out forever

I looked at this photo and thought I might

see Alex and the droogs waiting there for a fight

hoping to find one of these cowards armed with a knife

and give them a beating within an inch of their life

rather than the courts giving them a slap on the wrist

and just a weekly session with a psychiatrist
