50 Today!



50 today, i’m 50 wahey!

Only an Earthquake could ruin my day.

50 today.

I’m 50 today.

The world revolves around me.

‘Though just for a day. More’s the pity.

Half  a century not out.

That’s something worth shouting about.

Today i turn 50 folks.

I’ll end this ode with a joke.

You know you’re getting old for goodness sake…

When the candles weigh more than the cake!

Reach Out To Yemen



Reach out to Yemen

Won’t you reach out to Yemen

scenes of devestation

on our televisions

Reach out to Yemen. Show them you care.

For there’s a  real humanitarian crisis there

If you walk down the  average high st

And an aid worker with  a bucket you should meet.

Raising awareness for Yemen.

You could do worse than throw  a fiver in.

I mean do you really need a fiver more

Than those suffering the aftermath of  an awful war

Reach out to Yemen

Reach out to Yemen

Covent Garden



It’s late afternoon . As i leave Holborn station.

With a smile on my face as i head for Covent garden.

First port of call the chip shop.

then check out the bargains at FOPP.

I an a recent Covent garden convert.

Dig that store that sells the St.Etienne football shirt.

And of course the poetry cafe…

in Betterton st blows me away!

Sooner or later it had to happen….

i run out of money…..

But it don’t matter. I’m in Covent Garden.

And my world is sunny!
