UNSAMES (2) 1-3



Although I cannot be precise

I’ve had amnesia once or twice


Two can live as cheaply as one

but sadly for only half as long


If your nose is running and your feet smell strong

You’re the wrong way up to the way you belong.

    Plus a quich sketch of a fist for Doggeral Dave.

      Ta ever so, Michael. Pls send invoice to: Dog. Dave, Beyond the Black Stump.......I'm stumped......I'll ask Nursie for the full address when she comes round with my regular treatment .... she might know.
      All the best in the meantime,

      Oh lol, good writes and pic, and good poem for your grandson.
      I know of some alternative therapy, involving some standing on your head a while, assuming a foetal position, some spooky 'rebirth' stuff.
      I said - but I got enough to deal with being the right way up, let alone being upside down. If we were meant to be so, we would have been born with feet on our head! Any Berles or Rinths about?

      • Michael Edwards

        Drinking wouldn't be easy if we were the wrong way up and we'd probably suffer from splash back.

        Well done Sebastian for taking up the five mile challenge and more power to your elbow - loving the final "unsame" dear Michael - your mind is a versatile as your art-work. Great start to my reading today.

          It was entirely his own idea without any prompting and has now been featured in the local paper. After the run he went to his money tin and took out all the copper and said from now on he will be saving copper fpr Macmillan just like his Nanna does. There is so much hope for the future with youngsters like him around. A real credit to his Mum and Dad.

            A set of symptoms which wont let go of me
            Are the after effects of chemotherapy.

            Though i doubt my memory will see a reviver
            I count myself lucky, to be a survivor.

            Though none of us know what tomorrow may bring
            Today is the right time to joyously sing.

            Dunno why but i seem to want to join in with your posts and create some small ditty if i can. Maybe you're just inspirational lol.

            • Michael Edwards

              I'm in something dusk - love your responses

                i love writing these little pieces and often find myself having a private giggle - but what is life if you can't enjoy your own work from time to time. After all if you don't enjoy it what's the point of writing it?

              • Dove

                Great Sketch, whose the hand model. ?..
                Always love your humor, first one hits home
                Precisely, but I always forget

                • Michael Edwards

                  A person without humour is like a meal without wine is like a day without sunshine is like a knicker without elastic ... etc etc

                  My left hand whilst I drew it with my right - only a quick sketch but good practice.

                • The Uneducated O.A.P

                  Super Sabastian, well done
                  Thanks for the laugh Michael, goes down well in a not so funny world.

                  • Michael Edwards

                    We've got 6 grandchildren and they are all a real credit to their generation - we are so blessed.
                    if just one person finds my scribbles funny then it's worth writing them. Cheers Bill.

                    A poem celebrating the accomplishments of your grandson. I can't think of a better muse. Lovely little poem and bravo to Sebastian! I don't think I'll ever be able to run that far haha!

                    • Michael Edwards

                      Nor me - I can walk it though but my knees do play up.

                    • Christina8

                      Not only is this hilarious but so true!!! Good to see you!

                      • Michael Edwards

                        Good to see you too - will you be posting anything soon?

                        • Christina8

                          I recently just did. Thanks!

                        • Goldfinch60

                          Great achievement for Sebastian and to his parents for showing him a good way to go in his life, he will obviously have a great life.
                          Love both the couplets and the drawing MIchael.
