Dr. Suess, I Guess.

By Mike Bell Poetry No comments

Poetry is good for us,
It makes us happy,
Our babies loved hearing it,
Wrapped in a nappy.

No, that is too cruel.

A blue moon: I won't rise
From my unsettled-bed:

Wishing me dead..

Saudis are now
a 'priority market',
For our bowed state,
that'll ne'er complain of it..

Perfect Storms

By Mike Bell Poetry No comments

I read the metaphor
'perfect storm',
No sight of George Clooney,
instead it's Osborne..
