Rushed off my Feet

I was leaving my house at a pace,
But I went without tying my lace,
I stepped onto the drive,
I began to nosedive,
And I tripped over flat on my face.

Binary

This is my response to the earlier Flashback Track Friday prompt, where today we are thrown the track Wah Wah and asked to answer:

What conversation would you like to have with your parents, that you never had yet?

I set the prompt this week and I already offered an answer from my point of view. So I thought I’d answer it from my daughter’s perspective. While I had an averagely close relationship to my mother, she and my daughter were inseparable, and when Grandma died, it hit my daughter, just eleven at the time, very hard. So I’ve tried to construct my poem as an eleven-year-old might to describe that event.

Reblog: Flashback Track Friday #16 – Wah Wah

KK and I publish our Flashback Track Friday each, er…, Friday.

So why not check out a brilliant George Harrison tune and, if you can handle the pace, take part in the prompt?

Songshine Sounds

Welcome once again to Flashback Track Friday. Each week, either KK or Mister Bump will present a song to you, and out of that song, will prompt you with a question.


Today, a track from my favourite Beatle, George Harrison, released on his first solo album.

A young girl by the name of Annette,
Had maligned an old crone for a bet,
As she skirted a pond,
The witch lifted her wand,
And Annette ended up very wet!

My rhymes last few days have been cruel,
One would think politicians were fools,
Should talk bunnies a-hopping,
Or fresh lambs a-popping.
I just wish they gave not so much fuel.

Normal Service Resumed?

Seems the worst of our COVID is pasr,

Just a matter of days,
Before someone behaves like an ass.

Reblog: Thursday Retro #4

The Retrp track I published earlier is superb, I think.

Each Thursday I wanted to present a “golden oldie” track. I’m not going to place any bounds on genre, neither am I going to define exactly what “oldie” means to me, but I will try to keep to that description of “golden”. I hope you think so, too.

He was never a shining bright spark,
And was stuck what career to embark,
But his charm it was whimsical,
So chose pathway political,
And now he’s running the f’in country
