Funny Bloke

A response to a #Writeclub prompt

(poetry purists – it’s a San-san)

“funny bloke”

a poem from inky, based on page 16, line 16 of

Round Ireland with a Fridge“, by Tony Hawks.

He’d been brought in to warm up the crowd

before the main act began

The audience sat there – some bemused

while other’s shouted – beer fuelled – aloud

“bring on the band” – he wasn’t a fan

six minutes passed – it didn’t go fast

till the audience amused by comic pratfalls – reused

raised cheers from the assembled crowd

indeed they were amused

Collaborate

#fowc #Collaborate

Coming together – master of their crafts

on a mission – to craft a

labour of love,

local writers and poets – some

amateur, some well known professionals

bring together an opus of work to

orderly gander at

read at your leisure

and raise a smile at the

talent on every page

its available for a small donation to charity

of course – their all buying a copy for themselves

noting the day they came together – to create something special

Lego Man – Out in Space! – Image by Brian F Kirkham

He always wanted to travel

Lego man living on the shelf

his greatest descent – not a fall from grace

but sent into flight from a feather duster

till one day he flew

onto a book that made his dreams

into reality (of sorts) – as he landed and

walked into a patchwork of stars
