I COULD go on a Diet

If not I'll end up Obese

I SHOULD change my  Car

Or the FEDS will pull me over

 I MIGHT buy a House

But I can't afford £300k ($400k) !

PERHAPS I should learn Piano

But they are not portable

MAYBE I'll get Married

But I'm too Young to be a DAD ! 

I MAY win the Lottery

But I NEVER buy a ticket

WILL You still love Me when I'm 64 ?

I'll ask you again in 2047 !

WILL ZIMBABWE ever be GREAT again ?

Only if we PRAY for HER 24/7 

WILL TRUMP get a second Term ?

Only if HELL freezes over ! 

WILL 2018 be better than 2017 ?

For the UK ~ How could it be WORSE ? !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love BRIAN XOX

  • Comment from author about the poem: How ever hard the PUNDITS try to predict the FUTURE is always UNCERTAIN and full of surprizes ~ The GOOD ~ MUGABE has resigned ~ The BAD ~ Is Donald Trump actually President of the USA on a Republican Ticket ? ~ The UGLY ~ BREXIT means BREXIT ! However as intelligent Human Beings (and all Poets are intelligent !) should we ~ as individuals ~ be UNCERTAIN about our own FUTURE ? A NEW YEAR is a chance to make some REVOLUTIONS ! I can change my CAR but I can't change the WORLD ! However we can all make small changes in OURSELVES ~ in our FAMILY ~ in our WORKPLACE ~ in our COMMUNITY ! Collectively these small changes WILL change the WORLD and make it GREAT AGAIN ~ AMEN ! What do you think ? Comments Welcome ~ PEACE to All ~ BRIAN XOX

    You is dashing ahead. You seems to have had Christmas in November, and now you're on to the new year! lol. I'm a bit the same. Time I was writing an Easter hymn-poem now I think! heehee.


      Thanks STEVE ~ Well these key dates in the Calendar are all important ~ like THANKSGIVING USA yesterday and we all give thanks for the successful colonisation and development of the the USA over the last 500 years ! Every day should be Easter Day for the proclamation of the GOSPEL ~ AMEN ~ BRIAN

      • orchidee

        Know what you mean Brian - every day being Easter Day, as it were.

      • orchidee

        I know - we may make 1,001 new year resolutions, and we keep about 2 of them in the end!

        I'm a half full person - positive thinking - if only everyone was a positive thinker we would be in a much better world. Even despite Brexit and our desire not to stay in the United States of Germany. Wish I was 64 in 2047 - that's well past me but still so much I want to do and achieve - currently looking at new poetry forms and different printing techniques.

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          Thanks MICHAEL it is the "Power of Positive Thinking" that will make the UK (and ZIMBABWE) Great again ! The Scientist are saying that 116 is about the MAX we can live so you might make 2047bit of course you wont be 64 ! However given the scale and intensity of your Mental Activities you will still be intellectually active ~ which is a great blessing ! Thnks for all the insights of LINGUISTICS and VISUALISATION you share with us ~ at no extra charge ! Yours Brian Incidentally I think Herr Mertle and the 4th REICH is heading for a Fall and TURKEY will take over running the EU (This is my prediction No. 86 in "Old Brian's Almanac for 2018 " ~ Yours BRIAN

          Love it

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            THANKS JESSIE ~ For loving it ! For me it is the UNCERTAINTY & the UNKNOWN that makes live interesting and bearable ! HUGS ~ BRIAN (UK)

            Thanks Brian!

            That was witty and good.

            I sincerely hope 2018 will be a good year for me. 2017 for me has been an interesting rollercoaster of a year with some very unexpected twists and turns.

            Keep writing

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              THANKS FINE ~ Love your comment ! I trust 2018 will b good for you too ! To some extent it is the (and UPS & DOWNS !) that make life exciting Thinking of you ~ Celestial Hugs ~ Yours BRIAN

            • Christina8

              Well, I think we have to look at the good stuff. You are not too young to be a dad. And you could be married and not have kids, you know. Anyway, I'm trying to look on the positive side of next year as to not provoke my anxiety. It will be okay! As you said, each of us will make a little change here and there and change the world! Positive hugs-Christina

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                THANKS CHRISTINA ~ 2018 is a \"Tabla Rasa\" anything can happen and probably will ! I am thrilled about ZIMBABWE and we devoted last nights Prayer Meeting to Praying for the New Regime ~ we have about six Africans in our Congregation but no Zimbabweans ! Brexit is also a great unknown and of course the USA & N Korea. On a personal level I need to consolidate my Career and make sure all the Courses are progressing well. Angela and I are very good for each other ~ Of course I would love to be a DAD one day ! I am pleased your situation is very stable and that you look forward to the Christmas Season with all its Peace ~ Joy & Love ~ Every blessing for 2018 ~ Seasonal Huggies ~ BRIAN @@@@@@@

              • FredPeyer

                Well written, Brian! Life is not only uncertain, it is a gamble. And we all try knowing when to hold on and knowing when to run!

                • BRIAN & ANGELA

                  Very True FRED ~ "You've gotta know when to hold 'em ~ gotta know when to fold 'em ~ Know when to walk away ~ Know when to run ! Never count yer money when your sittin' at the table ~ There's plenty time for countin' when the game is done !" Life is a gamble (like it says in the Song) and whatever else you do in 2018 ~ Always watch yer BACK ! BRIAN

                • Fay Slimm.

                  Uncertainty makes the changes needed in all of creation and we who believe keep in mind that the best is always to come with such a benevolent universe around us. Thank you Brian for opening the doors of my deeper core. May your 2018 prove to be pouring you blessings galore.

                  • BRIAN & ANGELA

                    Thanks FAY ~ pleased my words of both uncertainty and opportunity ~ opened your doors and allowed me to reach in ~ You are one of my Blessings ~ Seasonal Hugs ~ BRIAN @@@

                  • Syd

                    I like this poem BrianSodes, hopefully Trump won't get a second term, what a tit he is. - Syd

                    • BRIAN & ANGELA

                      The paradox of TRUMP as President in the USA ~ is the same as BREXIT in the UK ~ Neither Country really knew what they were voting for and are now reaping the dire consequences ! America said "Anybody but Hillary !" and the UK "We want our Country back !" Somethings you can't predict ~ BUT ~ once the dice is cast you can't retract the decision ! Yours BRIAN

                      • Syd

                        I agree with your veiw, Trump only won that election for lack of better opposition. As for Brexit, I voted for it agsinst my better judgement but the only reason I wouldn't have voted for it was the fear of loosing my job and that's a pretty big reason to me. Thankfully I now have a permanent good job which I enjoy. You know your stuff Brian - Syd
