Toothpick Uses

Poem By jasmine maddock

A walking cane for the pixie men
Or those tentative at sword fencing lesson
First stage before moving on to a needle
Which can be fashioned if you make a hole
At the thick end. Ideal if scared of metal
Not if worried by wood. Or a seagull
Who makes a stylish nest to kip in
Up there altitude low maintenance, stilts high
So make some room from toothpicks to be taller
Or if you have normal-stilt vertigo. On we go-
I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine baby
Don't want to touch them putrid human mauler
Scratch them with toothpick to keep the distance
The collect them up to make a garden fence for snails
Or walk the plank for ants. Great fun, yes.

Smoking B******** Who Poison My Tubes

I always end up in an environment full of smoke
Having to sit next to a hyped up chain smoke bloke
Who won't put it out despite my nasty coughing bout
And my old man wheeze and green face splutter pleas


Inner traumatize, the bowels of my body spurt pain
Lost in the hopeless waste, my life a one note refrain
I have lost the capacity to feel exalted, emotion all mined
It's a bleak forecast, it's the agonies of humankind


Vendettas bear a grudge and refuse to budge
No better than a go-getter turned to a seat sitter
They scream and dream of ways to fight the injust
Before they turn to dust. All twisted and bitter

Unloved Lost Plane

Hardy battler, hardly bitter, despite being treated as machine
Metal mover, heard motion, momentum growing shudder
Rudder rover, over the blue, tantrum non throwing green
pasture passing landscape fleeing all seeing metallic gleam

Why Do Sheep Become Jumpers For People's Torsos

Tell me why do sheep become jumpers for people's torsos?
Always in my sleep I mull over such posing problems
And sometimes in my wake. At my wake when I am dead
I will still be thinking of such things in my ghost-head.
