Michael Edwards






Awesome –  really?  – how can you tell?

I’m  good –  maybe  -  but I asked if you’re  well!


This moment in time –   surely ‘now’ will suffice.

                          Same old, same old –same old what and why twice?       


  Talk me through it – through where?

I was sat –  so tell who sat you there? 


He’s 6 foot tall – no not at all - he’s 6 feet tall from his toes to his hair..

Oh My God – so which one – there’s 3000 out there.


Listen up – up where? Is it out of view?

Know what I mean? – yes I do – do you?


Any time soon – so you really mean ‘soon’ I’m proposing

I’m going to go – coming to come, coming to go or are you  just going.


Take in a film – take it in where?

It is what it is – well it ain’t something else I declare.

    Some expressions are annoying .
    I liked reading this 🙂

    • Michael Edwards

      Thanks yellowrose - I'm afraid I'm a bit of a pedant but it's probably a losing battle.

    • orchidee

      Good write and painting M.
      Miss Berles still alive?
      'Do you know who I am? - No, so you can't be anyone of any importance'.

      • Michael Edwards

        I know you S - Miss B is alive and well and breeding syllables for the new season - they will be available soon.

      • The Uneducated O.A.P

        The painting is , like, my kind of thing, and the poem, like, is great.
        My TV is full of holes where I throw things at it every time I hear that word,,
        Glad you're still residing on the planet.
        Hope you both " full of beans" lol

        • Michael Edwards

          Cheers Bill - this year things have taken off with commissions after a lean year last. Green shoots and all that. Yup the long box still lies empty.
          Hope you're well.

        • Doggerel Dave

          Double thumbs up from me, Michael.
          You do that...let it out... it's all good! 🙂

          • Michael Edwards

            Yus mate, I feel better for that. Take care of those thumbs.

          • dusk arising

            Yus, and 'blow me' if i 'don't not' agree with you '110%' which is just what my neighbour 'turned around and said to me'.
            Annoying aren't they.

            • Michael Edwards

              One of my Dad's phrases was 'Blow Me'. Different connotations these days or so I'm told - I wouldn't know.
              Yup - so very annoying.

            • Fay Slimm.

              Loud applause for wording some of my pet rants against the abuse and misuse of our beautiful language - good to see you back again Mike and as for that artwork well ---
              - - -- another great Wow.

              • Michael Edwards

                Bless you Fay - I rant all the time. Just watched Garden Rescue and counted seven incorrect uses of the word 'sat' - I'm becoming obsessed I'm afraid.

              • SureshG

                I’m sorry, for what? I wasn’t the cause, but your words did make me think - how odd.

              • Goldfinch60

                So I wanted to answer. So I thought of some words. So I put them down, you know, put them out to you. So now I have answered. So its alright now, in this moment in time.

                So Andy

              • myself and me

                I am glad to know you are good. I am well too. I love and enjoy your rant. Really.

              • L. B. Mek

                must have missed this when you first posted
                I remember the great series you had last year about idioms,
                might go back and read a few
                to create some space
                in my own tolerance tank
                and yeah, I mean that: 'LITERALLY'... lol
                thanks for the fun read Mike
                glad all is well
