In his defence

Just because he’s standing in a shop window it doesn’t make him a dummy

Said his defence

Just because he bullies it doesn’t make him strong

Said his defence

Just because he was caught, it doesn’t explain why

For the rest of the victims wife’s life

She will want to cry as she try’s to understand

Why her kind loving Man who cared for all

Had to die

Said his defence


Why Didn’t I?

When your dying

Then you remember when

Just as an example

You made yourself live

Because you thought that life was convention

But it’s not

Live your life

Smile your smile

Measure your own mile

Because when you die

You don’t want to say

Why didn’t I

Buyer Beware

The boy who bought the pit pony

That saved his Fathers life

Then ruined his life

And cost him his wife

Was close to cracking in the homeless doorway

He lonely shared with a sleeping Tony

The life saving – ‘s gambling away alcoholic pony

Which was named for fun after Blair endorsing

A piss taking pony that had ruined the life

And cost him his wife

After years ago

Saving his Fathers life

Of the boy

Who bought a pit pony

Sake for4 x

Me and my brother outside the French x

I  sat and smiled and loved my London.

Then cried as hard as you can do after a fight son.

Being bothered i see left a long time ago.

What’s left is a list to make a coin or more on the property theft thought.

Silly stupid step, we’ll take.

But we will all get over the mistake that we make.

For property’s sake.

Getting Bowie at least twice x

For me it was twice.

I knew of course he was always there.

And you had to share him with everyone.


Ashley who i miss, loved Bowie so much.

And at that time, in that Forest Road flat.

I didn’t get the musician level that Ashley got.

But I had had my first being touched by Bowie already.

Which meant i could agree.

A lot!

I was 7 when i heard of a Starman.

Waiting in the sky.

It was oh so magic for me.

And might have  helped years later.

My muddled mind to be free?

I’m so sure my older sister stacked it up to drop.

Sandwiched in between,  “you wear it well…” Rod.

And David “could it be forever?”

For me though it was twice.

I always liked and knew he was there.

As i shared him with everyone.


With Jenny who I still sometime’s randomly meet.

When I have to park near her flat on Wedmore street.

Where we danced and laughed like a couple of Kooks.

Which for me was the twice.


My heart was touched by the brilliance of Bowie. ♥️
