The Uneducated O.A.P

When We're Gone,, We're Gone

There is no starter

There is no dessert

We, are the main course

And when we're gone, we're gone

The kitchen doors are closed

Of course

    Blimey, for i minute i thought it was gonna be about @in the middle at Lidl' "when its gone it's gone" is their slogan. TBH if they put me for sale there, i'd be there fer ages - no takers.

    I like your last line but there are clairvoyants out there clain to have access thru a serving hatch. Charlatans every last one of them though.

    I hope you aren't thinking of offering us your final serving any time in the near future sir!

      Thanks for commenting dusk, I see that Lidl are gaining customers nearly as fast as Christianity is losing followers as it is estimated that by 2070 it will loose it's no 1 spot as the worlds faith.
      With your fine words and outlook on life I don't think you will be on the shelf for long
      Serving Hatch? Some claim to have direct WiFi link
      No plans on going anywhere, unfortunately not even outside at present.
      As iv said before, everyone is entitled to thier opinions, as long as no one gets hurt, etc,
      Keep doing what you do, Bill

        But such a fine snack you served up here. I'll tip the favorites star. ; )

        • The Uneducated O.A.P

          Good Day, A.P. Thanks for looking in, I managed to get through what little schooling I had without getting any acknowledgement for anything, so your fav has made my day. Keep well, Bill

          • Accidental Poet

            I acknowledge your excellence with poetry Bill.

            On a non-spiritual level - 'Yes, who ate all the pies? Is that why the kitchen's closed?!'
            On a spiritual level - clairvoyants are spooky. It's forbidden for Christians to contact them.
            They don't do anyone else any good either.

              Morning Steve, love pies, especially those steak or steak and ale with thick crusty pastry, as some one said on the telly "iv got lockdown love handles!"
              Never tried clairvoyants entertaining I should think, read a bit of Doris Stokes on a rainy day to while away the time, also entertaining. Don't know why it's forbidden for Christians to contact clairvoyants though, doesn't God welcome everyone regardless? My wife tells me I shouldn't get involved in religious stuff. So I think I shall go back to my usual rubbish. Thanks for commenting, Bill

              • orchidee

                Thanks Bill. I need never have gone to an 'alternative' Show. It didn't do much for me. It's the belief that clairvoyants get messages from evil sources somehow, with real dangers involved. It's more than, for example, a recent true story: A clairvoyant hurt herself in a fall, and said 'Oops, I didn't see that coming!'

                Looks like a life of salads - nice one A P

                • The Uneducated O.A.P

                  Morning Michael, looks like I'm going to starve as I don't like salads! Think I'll take the advice of some one on the telly, " if your going to write something stay away from politics and religion" more silly stuff coming I think, thanks for commenting, Bill

                  We may be gone but when you look up in the sky and see a buzzard floating around that may be me looking down and laughing at you all.

                    Morning Andy, I hope you do indeed come back, great view up there I should think. I shall come back as a chameleon that way I shall be camouflaged and won't become your lunch. None of us knows what's out there, and nobody's come back to tell us. Perhaps we'll fly past each other in the future. Stay safe, Bill

                      Thanks for looking in Suresh, It will never be settled, but it's food. for thought, stay safe, Bill
