No Fool Like No Fuel!

Poem By Tom Higgins

Had a bit of bother with my car,
my wife was driving it and had not got far,
when it began to stutter, and stall,
it wouldn't go, not at all.
She rang me and said,
'I think your poor old car is dead! '
I mentioned to her that before she left,
the fuel tank was of diesel, bereft,
could this perhaps be the reason why,
my old faithful had seemed to die?
And this of course was a fact,
I put diesel in and it did react,
and the engine spluttered back to life,
disproving the theory of my wife.
Yes, cars do actually need fuel to go,
without it they just tend to say, no!

Let Us Prey

The Lord above, he came to me and whispered in my ear,
'some folks down there, live their lives in ignorance and fear,
so think how easy it would be to get them to pay,
to listen to you spoutin' off about me every day! '

Gone Fishing

They launched at dawn, Jim and his mate,
both men unaware of their mutual fate.
The boat was small, the sea was calm,
and neither of them foresaw any harm.

Song Of Life?

If the god I don't believe in,
really made it all.
Why did he include death and illness,
yes why do these horrors fall,
