When I'm annoyed I feel a need
The house where I grew up is gone.
Our little world appeared to be
At dawn we'd be like knights of old.
We fought the shadows of great beasts.
For failing to pay homage to
We learnt to show some reverence
For storms that lavished favours
These memories remind me of
These monarchs shelter animals

The Dangers of Spring Cleaning
Donna's head is full of facts
She knows the names of kings and queens
Each year she feels her brain contains
Her brain requires a good spring clean
But once when she was throwing out
She found that when she held a spoon
She didn't know what she should do

Graham's paintings feature blood
Fiendish, saint-destroying beasts
Into salt and pepper cellars.
Stare from where the withered wheat
That can't be seen inside their souls.
Some friends of his appreciate
Who leave small creatures made to fight
They'd rather have the storm and strife
A steadfast faith in sleek facades
To fight without integrity
Graham's aim is not to spread

Notes from my Trusted Financial Adviser
Notes from my trusted financial adviser
She said that when flu leaves my nasal paths blocked or
And start farming leeches to use in my cures.
A meal of a crispy pig face and spiced mice is
My second-hand car only goes in reverse.
