Titleless day.

Dear Angels,

Let’s today be freinds

I’ll make amends.

I promise truly I do,

But you should know

I haven’t a clue.

I don’t why I have 

Only one sock on

I’ve already lost the other,

I can’t find my headphones

I only had them yesterday.

Yes I know how many times

I’ve lost them this week. 

I don’t know why I have

two ups of coffee in front

Of me…I’m not complaining,

Clearly I need two. 

My foot is cold.

This poem makes no sense. 

Good. 

Dear Angels,

Let’s have a nonsensical day…

But please where did I put my headphones?

In and out the devil’s maypole.

Just playing about with nursery rhymes and words.

In and out the deathly shadows,
In and out the deathly shadows,
In and out the deathly shadows,
the devil is your master.

Tippy tappy tap tap, he shall take your soul,
Tippy tappy tap tap, he’ll make that fire glow,
Tippy tappy tap tap,  and pain is all you’ll know.

In and out the chilling shadows,
In and out the chilling shadows,
In and out the chilling shadows,
He shall be your master.

Tippy tappy tap tap, the pain will make you scream,
Tippy tappy tap tap, you’ll lick his fingers clean.
Tippy tappy tap tap, you’ll always know he’s been.

In and out the devil’s maypole,
In and out the devil’s maypole,
In and out the devil’s maypole,
The devil is my master.

Ladybird ladybird.

Ladybird, ladybird
fly away home,
Your house is on
fire, your…

Go sweet thing, take heed
Flutter your wings upon the breeze.
For this curse will haunt your years,
Your life will be all fires and tears.
But alas, at the very least,
Stop calling all your children Ann,
consider binning all those pans.
Listen carefully when in the fields of man,
when fires burn you’ll be glad you ran.
Fly now my sweet rose coloured bug,
and I thank you kindly for the moments hug,
Remember keep those darlings snug,
Wrapped up tight like a bug in a rug.
