DAILY POEM " HAPPY NEW YEAR"



PICTURE COURTESY OF GOOGLE

As we say goodbye to another Year
we raise a glass to the new
but will it be any better?
the answer is down to YOU.

Will we be any happier this year?
could the recession get any worse?
will poor people have enough to eat?
and maybe a fatter purse!

Hopefully terrorism will cease
so soldiers can come home
posted out to alien countries
were only the evil roam.

Mother Earth had spoken
disasters came in floods and quakes
so we need to be more careful
and do whatever it takes.

Kidnappings became a trend
people were scared to venture
pirates in the ocean these days?
like out of a movie adventure.

So lets hope peace is born
as we grasp this brand new Year
lets all be Happy and content
try not to shed a tear.

I wish every one of you a HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR.
Thank you all for your kind support on my blogs through 2010, I look forward to renewing our friendship for another Year and meeting new friends.

William.

DAILY POEM, "THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS"

Christmas paper lying on the floor
Santa been and gone
kids still happy for a while
nothing to frown apon.

Turkey sandwiches dished out
three days after the event
veg displayed after its best
stretched to its extent.

Old movies rambling on
as the party hats are torn
mulled wine, mince pies
Celebrating when Jesus was born.

Dad sleeping, mum washing up
as the presents are gathered in piles
taken to the bedroom with loving care
all shapes of various styles.

Cars broken down Batteries expired, 
dolls with no ability to cry
Playstations max'd, kids tuckered out
helicopters unable to fly.

The gifts you never wanted
like the socks you do not need
or the jumper two sizes larger than you
no one paid any heed.

Its over once more, all the hype
just for one glorious day
everyone content, Christmas has gone
we all wish it could stay.


All the hype, all the stress and it is over in one day lol, Hope you all had a Merry Christmas.

DAILY POEM "THE ROBBERY" GUESS THE MOVIE 21

It started as a cry for help
everyone was all around
the gun was at his head
his mentality wasn't sound.

The negotiator tried his best
but he would ignore his plea
then the gun went off
now the gunman was free.

It took years to set aside
the pain he had went through
he let a little boy die
someone he never knew.

He took a job far away
as a cop, to forget the past
the days he had nightmares
were long and would always last.

Three kids brought it all back
when a robbery they staged
two of the kids were sensible
one was full of rage.

Murder was on his mind
he cared less for his so called life
kids with nothing better to do
causing anguish and strife.

In the end he got his reward
he was forgotten after that day
the negotiator won the fight
but his nightmares, they would stay.

Its guess the movie time again folks, this one is one of my favs, never really gave too much away ,but I am sure one or two of you will get this one right away. Good luck.

DAILY POEM "WINTER OF CHAOS"

Cold icy winds batter your face
as you walk along the road
pavements like glass, deadly under foot
as you battle to lighten the load.

Panic buyers rush, to buy essentials
no care for sick or lame
badly organized councils,look to the sky
looking for someone to blame.

Unsalted roads, inches thick
cars abandoned, broken down
trapped on motorways miles long
wondering what went wrong.

Year in, year out
the Weather is always the same
and yet we face catastrophe
no one will take the blame.

Where does all the revenue go?
we pay in annual taxes?
Organization is a must
before anyone relaxes.

We had been warned of Global warming
it was mentioned Years ago
so this comes as no surprise to us
as gases thrive and grow.

Every year without fail Britian comes to a standstill when it snows, year after year we are hit hard and yet we still have no organization, workplaces are hit due to staff unable to get to work, public transport stops, air and rail networks are hit, and we never get it right.People are trapped in mile long queues on motorways every time we have snow, its a joke.

Is your Country better Organized than the UK when it comes to winter?

DAILY POEM "A CHRISTMAS OBSESSION"


Bodies entangled in terror
rushed off your feet
supposed to be a time for fun
giving the kids a treat.

Shoved hard,queues miles long
stuff flying off the shelves
Santa would be so distressed
and so would his little elves.

Tills pinging, money given
bargains to be had by all
it takes the bravest heart to find
or they may take a fall.

Bags packed, heavy weight
dying for a cup of tea
kids screaming bored to death
some in need of a pee.

Decorations lit, Santa's grotto
waiting for the kindest soul
kids excited, getting near
sweets in a nearby bowl.

Shopkeepers delighted,money spent
who cares about the recession
credit cards max'd for just one day
of this human based obsession.


Went out shopping with my daughter today, it was manic, for one day a year everyone panics, everyone rushes, it def pays to start early but for people like me, will we ever learn lol.


Are you organized at Christmas??

DIFFERENT IN MANY WAYS.



For some they like to win
no matter who they hurt
attitudes are negative
stagnant, curt.

Selfishness can be a trait
so many people own
and if they do not get their way
stamp their feet and groan.

Then you get the selfless
who do so many things
happy with life and their lot
and everything it brings.

For them we cherish humanity
and thank God for what they are
never seeking rewards
or compliments by far.

That's why we are so different
not cut by the same cloth
as a butterfly brings beauty
and is different from a Moth.

Do you think you are selfish or selfless?

DAILY POEM "THE STRANGER"

He walked along the lonely road
not knowing were it may lead
determined to be different
no rules or laws would he heed.

As long as he was happy
some said that was insane
for him life was insufferable
stagnant,inane.

Too carefree to worry
contemplating his fate
lonely, indecisive
angry,irate.

No one knew who he was
identity unknown
to them he was "that" guy
who in their street had grown.

So as time passed on by
his inhibitions grew
no one had the right to judge
for one they hardly knew.

This is not about anyone in particular, but we all know someone who is different and wants to fit in but never does.

Do you know anyone who is eccentric??

DAILY POEM, "A TIME TO CHEER"

Once again we near the time
when money grows on trees
the festive season comes so quick
but for some it aint no breeze.

Money has to be spent
be it credit, loans or cash
gifts cost the Earth these days
but try not to be rash.

We always try yearly
to give our kids the best
but finances strained, money tight
for adults comes the test.

These days things cost the Earth
not like they did yesteryear
the surprise we had opening our gifts
whilst shedding a happy tear.

But for kids today it has to be big
or sadness fills the air
laptops, games and mp3's
if they don't get them then life isn't fair.

But for the poorest of families
credit is a must
shops all give but get more in return
interest charged in disgust.

Paying for years for a Happy time
may be the only way
try to be frugal but enjoy the time
and have a happy day.

As we near the festive period again its a time when people borrow to the hilt to give their kids a Happy Christmas, many poor families have no choice but to get credit to pay for their day, sadly its in your face, on tv, newspapers, radio, you cannot escape it, and everyone wants the very best for their kids at Christmas, but at what cost?


Do you spend a lot at Christmas?

DAILY POEM "CHILDREN IN NEED"

In a World of uncertainty
man comes together
children still suffer
and will do forever.

Millions of hearts
beat as one
to allow our children 
to have some fun.

Disease is rife
poverty high
money pours in
but we still cry.

The money is used
to give kids a chance
to help them survive
their life to enhance.

Support is out there
 give for the cause
so for kids in the UK
there may be Santa Claus.

Centres are created
to make life a breeze
for kids with cerebral palsy
to help the disease.

So please give generously
to this worthwhile affair
to the people of Britain


Today is Children in need day, a time when we dig deep to give for this awsome cause, its hard to believe that poverty stlll exists in this day and age, but sadly it does, this cause is strictly for our kids so we need to dig deep.

DAILY POEM "A LOVERS MEET" GUESS THE MOVIE 20

Lovers meet on a train
just a simmering chance
the music softly playing
no room to dance.

Clicking of the wheels
steam covered windows
never really knowing
that love truly grows.

Sitting on the chair
no view outside
her perfume floating wildly
carriage to carriage inside.

The dim lit cafe
were we used to meet
only a few people
sat in their seat.

The tea is warm
no one really cares
about our meetings
only a woman stares.

The time flies by
trains have stopped
the streaks on the floor
were the cleaner mops.

Love found by chance
but cannot progress
both parties married
feeling the stress.

We finally say goodbye
the end of the game
it would never work
no one to blame.


Guess the movie time again folks, this one is easy, so go on give it a go....

DAILY POEM "REMEMBER ME" REMEMBRANCE DAY

In two great Wars
many lost their lives
families were fatherless
husbands lost wives.

Wars celebrate heroes
today was the day
asked to fight for democracy
for freedom all the way.

Soldiers who had fought
were respected on this day
many graves unmarked
lost in the foray.

We will never forget
what they did for us
our Countries have flourished
that is obvious.

Poppy day is a tradition
to remind us who we lost
and to respect their braveness
for lives it had cost.

Not forgetting soldiers
who fight in foreign lands
in conflict for freedom
who's lives are in their hands. 

So salute these brave people
who fight without remorse
trained to protect people
publicly we endorse.


Friends it is Remembrance day,a time to remember the many men and women who fought two World Wars and the men and women who STILL fight wars in foreign countries. We salute all of you.


Please give generously to the poppy appeal :)

DAILY POEM "BORN IN THE DAY"

Way back in the fifties
single Mothers were few
you had to be married
if pregnancy went through.

Women were spurned
if promiscuous in that day
tongues would wag hurtingly
people had a lot to say.

Children freely aborted
by women too scared
the stigma overbearing
if they were not prepared.

Abortions performed illegally
in dirty back streets
the methods often gruesome
no doctors there to treat.

Many women died
rather than face a life
de botched operations performed
often by someone's wife.

This all happened for real
imagine if it was today?
it would be called MURDER
the amateurs would surely pay.

Was watching a drama the other night on TV called Vera Drake, a touching tale of the early fifties when a woman took it upon herself to perform backstreet abortions using primitive methods, it came to light when one of her, customers, ended up in hospital, the Woman was ignorant as another lady who put her in touch with the girls was making money out of the abortions, very sad, but it did happen, in an age were women could not have kids out of wedlock. The lady got 2 years, this was drama but probably true to life in those days.

Do you agree with abortion?

DAILY POEM,"A FIREWORK EXTRAVAGANZA"

Bangers, rockets and wheels
in a foray of exploding noise
kids quietly impressed
as if they were all toys.

Impressive shapes and sizes
sparkling in the wind
rockets rising for miles
catherine wheels pinned.

A bonfire glowing wildly
sparks and embers shooting
nothing taken for granted
sirens plucked for hooting.

Displayed with apt music
a symphony of violins
the guy burning harmoniously
eating potato skins.

Children shaking sparklers
clad in warm hats
adults supervising
fireworks exploding in spats.

What an amazing night
everyone content
in a safe ,happy environment
money well spent.

The rush of an organized fireworks display is awsome ;)

Have you been to a display? or do you have your own?

crippling all around us
making us mad?

DAILY POEM "ANTI SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR"

Muggings are rife ,old folks scared
murder is common, issues are flared
alcohol rampant, drugs are abused
jails full of people guilty, accused.

Shopkeepers terrified, windows are barred
faces all torn ,ripped or scarred
children are hanging around all night
facing all people ,often they fight.

Anti- social behaviour alive in our day
people are nervous and dare not say
Police are overstretched, taxes are high
does anyone care? except you and I?

Gangs hanging around streets, young folks with too much time on thier hands, and whos fault is it? thiers? ours? well its partly both, we were all young at one time, high unemployment, nothing for the kids to do causes a lot of anti social behaviour, what can we do? Educate the kids further give them reasons to be alive, jobs, activities, there are an element of young people who do nothing to cause grief so we must also respect that not all youngsters cause Anti social behaviour.

Are you or someone you know affected by this? would love your views..

In a time of war
buisness suffered
money was tight
society buffered.

Germanic factories
worked day and night
making weapons

A high class businessman
hungered for wealth
paid poor wages
thought of himself.

DAILY POEM "TIME NEVER STANDS STILL"



Where do all the months go?
you blink and another one ends
one moment you are in summer
out walking with your friends.

Then comes Autumn
when colors come alive
leaves turn a subtle red
only the hardy will survive.

Too soon comes winter
when things turn cold
bitter winds howl all day
scarves and gloves are sold.
