The Pianist

Five star, a young Generalissimo
Was a whizz on the old pianissimo
When he played for the army
His troops all went barmy
How they cheered, as they shouted bravissimo.

WordPress

Dauphy: What’s up?

Hobbo: This blog! Since I changed the colour scheme, it’s not working properly.

Dauphy: How.

Hobbo: It keeps freezing when I try to edit anything. Won’t let me alter or add pages. Need I go on!

Dauphy: Have you tried changing the fuffle valve, or adjusting the giggling stick?

Hobbo: What the heck are them?

Dauphy: Don’t ask me. I’m only a dog!

Hobbo: Thanks Dauphy! Meanwhile, to all those who look forward to our daily blogs (both of you), I can only apologise for the break. We have contacted WordPress, and are waiting for them to get back to us!

Love is…

Love is

Young love should be
uplifting
joyous
exhilerating
eventful
and illogical

Mature love will be
compromise
surrender
agreement
sacrifice
and psychological

Love as it withers is
boring
dull
average
everyday
and methodical

But real love, true love is
fulfilling
caring
forever
sharing
and magical

The ‘E’ Plan Diet

The 'E' Plan Diet

This elephant's fat, can't deny it
Poor Nellie is put on a diet
She drops two tons in weight
Though they still fill her plate
But boil all her food, and don't fry it.

Ants

Ants

A new insect is here
They're the hairy ants.
Trained to obliterate
variants.

They pull on their boots
like ordinary ants
and Covid 19 gets
a kick up the pants.

Altered Images

Dauphy: I like the new layout.

Hobbo: It’s okay to a point.

Dauphy: What’s up.

Hobbo: I like the new colour scheme, but I was hoping that I could swap the paintings on the home page for dog photos.

Dauphy: But you don’t know how to do that. Do you?

Hobbo: Not a scooby!

Dauphy: You know what they say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”

Hobbo: Too late now…

Golden?

Golden?

The silence
of a life cut short
tragically, too brief.

The silence
of a bereaved mum
overwhelmed with grief.

The silence
of the couple
lost in their own thoughts.

The silent 
tear she sheds
when he asks her for divorce.

The silent
look of horror
before that bomb explodes.

The silent
sign she gives
as she steps into the road.

Those silent
games they played
that went beyond pretend.

This silence
is forever
no beginning and no end.
