liking how complex this artwork style is evolving into Michael, I remember a few months ago when you first started it was but a few lines and angles, now its full of discreet details, creating their own \'realms within realms\', wonderful that you choose to share your journey of creative discovery with us, I find it inspirational even if most of its nuanced subtlety flies above my uncultured head, lol
liked the historical context included in your commentary as well
MP\'s corrupt - how morosely predictable
no wonder the British public just votes for the opposite of what our politicians want nowadays;
hello to a future of more Boris-like caricature leaders, with their hands on that red button of our collective fates...

Don\'t trust any politicians but Sturgeon is more believable than most.
Wonderful are work Michael, much to visualise in it.

Not too keen on these sort of pickys, love your other art though, you ever considered a seascape with a lovely square rigger?, in your style of course.
Politics? Nah, can\'t be doin with it.
You had your second jab yet? Still waiting for mine.
Keep on at it.

Love that picture Michael. Parts of it remind me of what comes out of my belly button on it\'s annual clear out day.
Cameron is the typical MP (or was) the epitome of a grey characterless stuffed suit. More so than Mr \"Green shoots of recovery\" Major himself. Sturgeon on the other hand is a firebrand in anyones book..... cor! what it would be like to have a leader like her.

Picture up to usual standard, Michael (cheeky!).
Politics a bit lost on me:
First stanza - Scotland seeking to leave the UK?
Second Stanza...Cameron the bloke who started the Brexit thing? Hadrian\'s wall - irony?
It will probably spoil it if you explain, so just give me my score - 2 out of 10?

Like OAP , I am a little unsure what you mean... then I slap myself and remind me that a poem should not mean, but be.

INEQUALITY BY TWO
The Uneducated O.A.P said:

Love the artwork, love the building but not what it stands for. The older I get the more I believe there is no God.
Sadly, my brain does not allow me to understand what you have written.
Black is black and white is white but in my world when it comes to humans I don\'t see colour, I see people.
Is that what you mean?

Doggerel Dave said:

Go for it Michael. I\'ll wear the \'a\' I think, so long as it isn\'t banned - then I would have trouble with the labels \'atheist\' and \'agnostic\' which I firmly wear myself... (As an aside here I would offer that the \'C\' in this context has been attached to those who believe that jc is the son of that big bloke allegedly in the sky, so deserves downgrading, while the \'a\' will always belong with those who suggest that he was a political figure, possibly a political activist and freedom fighter).
I\'d just like to add - a good write and great picture...

INEQUALITY BY TWO
L. B. Mek said:

somehow, despite all this progressive mindsets of modernity
there is an undeniable legacy of unifying tranquil solace
within empty church buildings
that sadly, those who utilise them: tend to ignore...
a tranquillity captured ever-so subtly in your artwork, I feel Michael
a great offering on a bright sunny morning, grounding
that tinge of instinctive delusional euphoria that invades
at a mere hopeful glimpse of vitamin D, nurturing

Good writes and pic M.
You been round our way? There\'s a church like that with a wall about 5 miles from us.
Erm, the \'C\' is for the name of a person, Christ. The \'a\' does not refer to any particular person. That\'s my reason - or excuse?!

Since I have given up on christianity I always use a lower case c.

Aah, back to the original art style that I know, lovely picture Michael and love the way that you have created the brickwork on the wall.

RAISE THE PINKY

To bring a little vulgarity into the subject, as I would, I saw the title and thought you had been on the viagra!
Nice P and P though.

L. B. Mek said:

firstly your artwork just shouts fun and had me tilting my head at an angle, like the fool I am, lol
wonderful play on caricature metaphors in your wording, its write\'s like yours that makes me look in horror when a wild pinkie strays away from the pack and my hand resembles a jazzy kettle..
a great read Michael

Ooo! Yer know where yer can stuff yer sanny \'an I don\'t mean down yer gob..... Apart from that Sir, your work has a certain structure rhythm and rhyme which is pleasing...definitely an example of form which trumps content....

Do you remove the skin from the cucumber as well?

Another intriguing artwork Michael, I have shown my daughter these, she is also an artist, and she says that they remind her of works by Joan Miro.

Doggerel Dave said:

Quite right too Michael – a good old semantic argument can be very rewarding when one has a good hand.
How you achieve the balance in your pictures must be your special secret.

Another intriguing artwork, much to fathom there which to me is what art is about in many ways.

a lament to the demise of heritage accents as gateways to language\'s eloquence of veracity, for those tasked with burden of descriptive commentary..
good read Michael, gave me my first chuckle of the week

Good art, good poem, Michel.
Sports are an endless source for metaphor and simile.

Wot is this football of which you speak? Not soccer perchance?
I enjoy mazes and labyrinths - your picture gets my eyes running the same way.
