Risk

The reality is usually greater than the prize

if you want to leap out of a plane, or over a cliff edge – you

sometimes have to understand the dangers of what you’d call “Fun”

killing yourself in the search for thrills ? Not a great idea.

#Socs #Overtheedge

It’s not easy being a marble

they may say you’re made of hard stuff

but you still have a glass heart

and with artistic colours running through you

you can be a sensitive soul

cobbled together with your mates

as each players dobber tries to smash you

out of the safety of the chalk circle drawn on the tarmac

and gravity can be your worst nightmare

as you balance and wobble

on the un even surface

They’ve been doing this for years

Sat in the arena watching the gladiators

Facing off against one another

Spectators nails chewed to the quick

as the clock ticks down to the 90th minute

cheering every tackle

calling every decision

applauding every header

and jumping for joy if their team wins

Precipice

Salford 17th May 2017

Precipice

perhaps it wasn’t the greatest idea

resting your legs of the edge of the cliff

everybody is now yelling at you to

come away from where you are sitting

in case the floor beneath you happens to come away

pulling yourself up and sitting somewhere safer

is a great idea, maybe that way people

could enjoy the view and not be

engaged in the story you created

On the Edge

Edge

image

Its a dangerous thing being a postmark –

pressed down on envelopes by the postmaster.

Your message lost by the recipient …

all they are interested in are the contents,

and after they have them…you end up in recycling.

but day after day you appear on the stamps,

hanging by the address of your crest for dear life.

Only to meet certain doom as the envelope

tumbles into the nearest steel bin

every day, you pray for a stamp collector

but enjoy the drop through the letterbox.

A temporary daredevil

do you like living on the edge ?
