SO many happy words and events to spread, hence Town crier, apparently only regular one about now, but I know, and sure you do, a few people who could fill the role! C’mon somebody must ring a bell?
Anyway enough of that and onto a news blog of success and joy. With the current news and health fears, that HAS to be good…….
To start with then, I have a presenting slot and stall at National Women’s day this Saturday 7th March. Five presenting slots on my poetry world and Help for Heroes support at a massive and prestigious LIFESTYLE weekend 14/15 th of March with a stall there too. AND….
Ta RA, Ta RAAAaaaaaa a Sussex glossy Magazine called “ETC” is doing an article on me and my involvements for April. coming out 26th March, so ALL good there as well!!!
Recent Gigs at new venues and events have all been successful with requests for me to return.
Poem time and perhaps says it all for me=
My favourite times!
A good few wines,
Some great friends
Home road bends.
Ideas and inspirations
Poetic writing destinations,
Music of Strawbs and Moody Blues
So I scarce know which to choose.
Maybe Garfunkel and Simon
With more material to climb on?
Yes it all comes so easy now
Or is it that I’ve just learnt how,
To be my best, and now I know it,
Writing as The Psychy Poet!!??
Maybe not too surprisingly that was written on return from a great lunch at bar near my French place!

Perhaps this poem may describe me again?
It takes a very brave person
To rise above the parapet alone,
And to show themselves completely
Whilst standing on their own.
Now of course they would expect
That others would support them too.
But sadly not quite the case
As some find it hard to do,
Something else for any others,
Or maybe it’s indifference
That causes them to duck out
All safe behind their fence.
Of course they watch keenly
To see what happens next,
With their well rehearsed excuse
Or some other lame pretext,
That will justify themselves
From any exposure to the fray.
As they really do believe it’s best
To run, and fight another day.
So what of our poor victim
Now standing open to it all?
Leading a flock who didn’t follow,
And maybe smile to see him fall.
For in some cases it would suit
The cowards to say, I told you so.
We were right to keep our cover
And thus not to have a go.
Which certainly would be safer
And not take any chance to gain
Successful wins in their life,
But all their fears remain.
Tony Flood, are you ready? James H hope things getting sorted, (I need you man)…
JOKE TIME :-
1) Patient went to doctors complaining of new his prescription making him walk like a crab. Are yes confirmed the doctor, they are the side effects!
2) I really, really love Hedgehogs, but wish they would learn to share….
3) Doctor, doctor, I think I’m a dog! “How long have you felt like this?” the Doc asked… “Oooo ever since i was a puppy” came the reply!
4) Couple of fonts walked into a bar, but bartender said “We don’t want your type in here!!!”
Ted n Beth say hello and have been enjoying their fame and going to gigs with me to folks great delight… always popular those two, AND now their new friend Army Hero Bear has joined them… Photo below.
Nearly done as I’m busy, busy, busy…..
The messenger calls as usual
And you take it as always read,
But you may get a shock
When worrying that he’s dead.
For he hasn’t called, or spoke
So you wonder what is wrong?
But maybe nothing is for him,
When he sings another’s song,
Just how they like to hear him
As for her he speaks so well.
So you’ve faded in his memory,
Though not that you can tell.
As like thunder, the silence roars
Reverberating about your ears,
That once rejoiced to hear him
But now noise is replaced by tears
Of an acid recrimination,
That you didn’t cherish it all.
And thus you have lost it now
Even if begging him to call!
So your messenger has vanished
And seems won’t be coming back,
To pick up all the pieces
That crumble as you crack.
For no messages are forthcoming,
As the delivery man has gone.
Leaving you with a hard lesson,
About the man who shone
That bright light in your life,
And always made you smile.
But when felt you gave nothing
He knew you weren’t his style.
