Jack and Gillian (No letter T)

Jack and Gillian progressed up a hill,

For a pail of H20.

Jack fell down and broke his crown,

And Gillian came nose-diving behind.

 

As a consequence Jack ran home,

As quickly as he could.

He was wrapped up in bed, plus a bandage on his head,

Soaked in vinegar and brown paper!

 

Gillian laughed aloud maniacally!

As Jack curled up like a ball.

Gillian cried, ‘We’re very ill you see Jack!’

Jack said ‘Yes, I agree… And my name is Paul!’

 

 

Firesky!

At an aggressive speed

I was losing my way

I was feeling so alive

Seeing what could never be

The atmosphere burned red

And so I thought of what will be

…from now on

I noticed then what I never see

Chrome slithering roads and bloodied sky

With all moistures weeping in blue

Rolling, cruising, endless

On and over flattening mountains

This is what I’m telling you

Those slow buildings in green

I’ve finally found out what I almost lost

And sensed what I had never seen

All around while dissolving out

Through and into the Firesky!

 

 

 

The First Flight of the Flightless Bird

Dren is a bird of that he knows and that is all.

He has no wings and his beak is useless and small.

What makes him a bird is his willingness to fly,

He dreams only this before it’s his turn to die.

 

As he looks to the heavens he sees robotic flight,

He reads up on his finding for endless days and a night.

Dren takes a test and now a pilot he can be sure,

This is a remedy to his miserable life of before.

 

As the plane goes up he remembers he’s a bird and sings

Then he opens his hatch and shits on my belongings.
