#fowc #nebulous

Noted – you’re in a bit of a haze over this…but

every cloud has its silver lining

born out of a culinary experiment that went amiss

up to the adding of the popping candy, everything

looked fine – till the batter mix leaped

out of the pan and landed on the ceiling

up you look, as a cosmic array appears above

should you leave it there ? or clean it up ? – That’s up to you.

Anyone

Poetry, Politics

#Fowc #Anyone

The ambitious young upstart

looking at his boss

watched with envy

as the boss handed out the cash

and the rest played with their building blocks

Anyone could do that! – the upstart cried

and plotted his way to his bosses seat

sending his boss to a personal hell

and soon from his position at the top – he fell

And the upstart achieved his ultimate dream

appointing his friends to his number one team

ignoring the warnings from others around

as others in chamber just listened and frowned

And while on his pedestal – making merry and all

the one before him was having a ball

pointing the finger at the ones who did push

with cautionary words – look out for the rush

Brash

Perhaps you might call his style “Alternative”

Really, the colour of his suit said it all

Engaging with his electors like an Emperor

Senators, too – fare not that much better

In fact – some might say he treats some with contempt

Democracy, is still alive – it’s just had to make adjustments

Engaging with the man at the top in a different way

Noting his brash persona, but

Taking everything said, with a pinch of salt

Rectify

Acrostic, Poetry, Technology

Salford 3rd September

Reduced to a second relic in the corner

Even the technician suggested it was past its best

Computer’s do have a shelf life – but

To others – all that was needed, was a bit of

Installation and dusting down

Fresh drivers and a spot of cleaner – soon back to its

Youthful side, particularly with a new CD-Rom Drive

Really – eating some things just taken out of the ground ?

Avoid doing it at all cost…even carrots need a

Wash before you start eating them

Reality is – not cooking them – keeps the nutrients

And also the Vitamins and Minerals

While they might taste nicer cooked – they’re better this way

Root Vegetables, need a little preparation

And fruit from the tree can just be picked while ripe

While meat and fish – need some attention from the chef
