After a busy day campaigning, she sat on the edge of her bed, and kicked off her heavy shoes.

"Shit," she said, out loud to the room.

"Shit, shit, shit!" This time directly at the Ottoman.

Her campaign manager knocked sheepishly at the door. "Come in Nigel, for fucks sake!"

Nigel opened the door and stepped into the dimly lit room.

"I know, Nigel, I know! I shouldn't have promised them all free quinoa, but it's done now!"

Glancing over the trench, he counted.

"Thirty, I think. Twenty nine now. Twenty eight."

It was getting worse.

"Twenty si-five! Twenty five! Two at once!"

Half a day passed. They were down to the last one.

He looked round at the remains of his once strong army.

Refusing to accept defeat.




It broke. He heard it break.

Pieces shot off in all directions.

The pain was unbearable. Hot, searing pain everywhere the fragments touched.

She had gone, and his heart would never be the same.

The Cockrill crowed again.

"Cock-a-doodle-doo" it taunted my sleep. There was no point I was going to have to get up and face the day.

"Cock-a-doodle doo." Again. "Alright, I'm up! are you happy now?!"

"Cock-a-doodle-doo." This time, smug. Like he had won. "I'm GLAD I'm awake actually. I'd rather be awake than be a stupid chicken!

"Cock-a-doodle-doo... You hate your job and your wife left you for Gary C. from work."

Bastard.

Today I am taking my eldest to a university open day, in the same week I went to my youngest's nursery open day.

A good sign you left a mad age gap.

In the British English lexicon, "America" is an accepted way to refer to the United States of America. The Christian fundamentalist country below Canada. Hope that clears it up for people.

Honestly though, what is wrong with America?

I thought "encroaching" was a rule in kabaddi, so I did some research on it.

Aiming to write a poem about raiders and stoppers and the majestic ballet between.

Fond memories of channel 4 in the 90s flooded back and made me feel young again.

Alas, it's nothing to do with it. No idea what sport I was thinking about. Maybe ultimate frisbee or ten ball.




You want me to go into that place of shelter, protection or safety?

No, I refuge.

I am rubbish at this week because of a poorly 2yo, but I will get back on it soon.

There are hundreds of stars I can see from my room, that drown the monotony and hide the gloom.

Each one shines like Tinkerbell's near, overwhelming the sadness, submerging the fear.

Pinnacles of light millions of miles away, that make things better by the end of the day.




"Are you sure?" came the voice from the postbox.

Phillis was sure.

"Ok. But only for the long weekend."

The door of the postbox opened wide and the pale monster clambered out.

Phillis gave the monster her clothes. Then her thick coat and tartan bag.

Off he went down the street to Mecca Bingo.

Naked, she got in the postbox, laughing her fucking head off.




Carpe diem means seize the day

If you want to say it the Latin way.

Relationships are varied and interesting.

A real mash and Mish

Sometimes like from M&S

Sometimes like from Wish.

The Summer air knows the answer

When it's warm and heavy and slowly

It welcomes the relief of thunder

So to scream through the earth in fury.

As the storm raged on, I started to wonder

Why does lightning always beat the thunder?




I got a chain for my 16th birthday.

A golden chain, a sovereign ring and a full length leather jacket.

I was quite the man about town.

Mustard flares sticking out the bottom, and a centre parting and an undercut to top the lot off.

The 90s were weird.

I'd got rid of the lot before the Euros even started.
