Michael Edwards






The wrong end of the stick?

but there’s one at each end!

So which do I pick;

please tell me dear friend.


Was it poked in some poo

that you’d got on your shoe?

Was it poked in a tin

with mould growing therein?


The wrong end of the stick?

but there’s one at each end!

so which do I pick;

please tell me dear friend.

    If you chose Michael, I'll have the other end.

    Oh lol, good write and pic M.
    Some one-way streets in town now.
    A guy was going the wrong way on a street. Someone said 'It's one way'.
    He said 'But I am only going one way'. The reply was 'But it's the wrong way!'
    Can't people read notices?! Grrr. lol. They give you a dirty look, though it's them who are going the wrong way.

      Do two way roads lead to two different destinations

      • orchidee

        Erm, yes, suppose so, if one side of the road is going one direction, and the other side of the road is going in the opposite direction.

          Your wit always amazes dear Michael - I truly admire the drawing and the message contained in each line.

            Under the present circumstances I would be in a state of deep depressloads were it not for my sense of humour. Thank you so much Fay.

            I was always taught to avoid the sharp end .. but when push comes to a shove, or where loved ones are concerned .. that approach kind of goes out of the window ..

            the same principle applies where justice is concerned, or the under dog is being trodden on ...

            I think in that kind of situation, it is hard not to grab hold, even if it is the pointy end offered ...

            The trick is .. not being afraid to give a good shove if necessary .. oh' n be prepared to drop and run like hell ... after thoroughly washing your hands in the appropriate strength disinfectant as stated in the manual of personal hygiene and stick management ....

            Now then.. having got the stick thing off me chest .. I think it only fair to say that your artwork sir and indeed your sense of humour/fun are second to none ..

            Cheers ,

            Don't walk too close to the building in case the pointy end comes out of the window - great advice Neville - always stay at the launching pad never at the target.
            I take my humour seriously - it is not something to be laughed at.

            Cartoon - A great one-liner.
            Poem - Has two identical ends, just like the stick..almost. If you remove an "i" from the last stanza, and someone says, "There's an "i" missing.' you can say you poked it out with your stick. Just a thought.

              Great thought Phl - poked it out with my stick - got to go - my hands need washing.
