The Inspector Debagged — Blonde Southern Belle Comes To The Rescue

Sergeant, what are you doing with that orange bag over your head?  I told you to cuff them, not muck about!, And ... O my god, that woman’s hardly got a stitch on — cover her up with a black bag someone — and as for you Cocktail Dress Lady, haven’t you got a home to go to? Hey, what’s going on? You, Blonde Southern Belle, stop fiddling with my belt this minute. O sh... my trousers, give...

The Government Inspector investigates Rump’s Bar

ALRIGHT, QUIET EVERYBODY! No one is to leave — and that means you three. Names please. Ahem, it has been drawn to our attention that there has recently been some highly irregular behaviour in this bar, and there will be prosecutions. Do you want me to spell them out? 1. Wearing of non-biodegradable plastic. 2. Abuse of cocktail party products. 3. Oral gestures of a forbidden nature. ...

Recommended Read A Soldier's Memory

He lay stretched out on the narrow iron framed bed Idly staring at the cracked and blotchy ceiling, Its surface resembling a map of no man's land, A senseless wilderness of craters and barbed wire. Unthinking, his mind was empty of all feeling Other than a sense of utter futility, A weariness that had seeped into his marrow Like the water bleeding from the walls of the trench Whose...

Home At Last

At last, I am home after months away, Long months that at times have seemed more like years, When home and comfort were just a mirage; Hard months living out of an old rucksack, Battered and worn after years on the road, Much like me, I suppose, old and worn out. As an aid worker for a charity, I thought I had seen it all, South Sudan, The West Bank and Gaza Strip, Lebanon, So many places,...

In Memory Of Those Who Have Gone Before.

Hello, I'm Saffie and I'm just eight years old. I hope you'll forgive me if I don't make much sense, But I'm a bit confused just at this moment And I don't quite understand what's going on. Mum and Dad had promised me something special, A really nice treat for my birthday present, And I jumped for joy when they told me the news About the tickets for the Ariana gig. We got a train from Preston...

Why, Oh Why

In recent months I have been to four funerals, All of them close friends I have known for many years, People I respected, and in some cases loved; People who had all led rich and fulfilling lives, All loved by family, successful in business, And who had all served their local communities, Enriching others through voluntary service, Often going the extra mile for no reward Other than...

Unrequited Love

Oh lady fair, so haughty, and so coldly proud, Entreat though I may, naught it seems can ever pierce The adamantine shell that guards your cruel soul, And even my most honeyed words are all in vain. However hard I strive to rise above the crowd Of those that press about your feet, whose cries so fierce Each clamour to be heard and were I to enroll The gods above, my suit would surely end...

Queen Of My Heart

So dear to me, I love and cherish you so much, More truly than words alone can hope to express, For I am only complete when I know your touch, And in that union, I find true happiness, Blessing the day you consented to be my wife. But my heart aches whenever I see you in pain, And I hate everything distressing in your life, My only wish is to make you happy again. But such is...

The Other Woman

My dear, I can't help wondering what I've done, You've become so cold and distant these days, And yet we always used to have such fun, Happy together in so many ways. You could have tried a bit harder honey; I asked you not to be late home last night, It was only our anniversary, And a simple gift would have been all right, Flowers, and perhaps a bottle of wine, And we could have ordered...

No One Dies Of A Broken Heart

It was a heart attack the doctors said, Brought on by overwork and too much stress; He was never going to die in bed, It is true, but I would hazard a guess That this was only part of the real truth, And there was much more to it than they thought. Of course, he wasn't in the flush of youth, And at times seemed a little overwrought, Always burning the candle at both ends. He had been so...

Romance on the Railway

Each night beneath the kindly moon’s soft radiance We make again that joyful connection of love Vulnerable in our emotional nakedness As we bare the most profound feelings of our hearts All too soon the hour of parting is upon us Catching us unaware in our communion The whistle of the passing train is the sad signal That we must reluctantly say goodnight, sweet dreams Come away with me on...
