Adam

Poem By Irene C S ClarkHogg

Adam


Out in the cold
Where there is no air
And no-one to share
He travels alone
From a far off place.
He gives a sigh
And wonders why
This must be done


To elevate man.
But he'll be gone
When she bears his son
And she will not grieve
For these half apes
Who will populate the land
Cannot understand.
Goodbye, dear Eve.

* Tears Of Rain

His love was a raindrop
In the lonely desert sand.
The place that once was me,
Setting me free,

A Degenerate Mouse Called Arthur

I have a little mouse called Arthur
Who gnaws away inside my bones
He is armed with sharp incisors
And metal claws on all his toes.

** Rational

“Forsooth maid, ” spake he,
“Hear now my true words.”
This varlet of a bygone age,
This sage, with heathen tongue.

A Mother's Gift

A woman gave part of her soul
That the being she created could be whole
Then having physical and spiritual form
As the sun arose a child was born.

* Geordie Folk

I was born on the banks of the old river Tyne,
Where it wends its way east to the sea.
Past the pit heaps and coal tugs; the clang of the shipyards
Created fond memories for me.

* An Unfortunate Vampire

Johnny was a vampire,
One of the ancient breed.
Some said, ‘They are born of woman,
But spawned by Satan’s seed.’
