When (the Ballad Of Solomon Grundy) short poem

Whatever happened to Solomon Grundy?
Where is he now to be found?
He’s in an old box in a old church yard
Six or so feet underground.

When Solomon Grundy was born on a Monday
They didn’t think of it then.
Now Solomon’s gone the same path as us all
It’s only a matter of when…

That was the end of Solomon Grundy…

My muse is like an excitable dog. It catches sight of totally random things and starts yapping and running around and wagging its tail and WILL NOT STOP until I write a poem about it.My poetry is sometimes based on personal experience and sometimes on other things. Aside from that, I enjoy video games (My favourite game series is Mass Effect) and the popular television show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

The Wheels

The Wheels short poem

The path disappears under the foot. Gently I lay down the book and start reading the blank page. Stainless thoughts.I strip to root. A stunning revelation about a tinned dialogue. Blue hydrangeas were telling something. It was time to become

On The Gallows

On The Gallows short poem

Lead me into, the green darkness, under the nude flames. It was hurting; the golden sun. Out of full moon, werewolves would come out chasing the flesh, the long limbs of silence, in asci of fluids, stopped in tracks. No
