Man over board


Water’s in the dark soul.

Alert flood control.

It’s blocking all the air holes.


We Must

Imprison the felons

Whilst Paris weds Helen

Hallelujah Medusa!

A new dawn fades

But the parade’s a masquerade




It’s spilling out her eyes.

The boat’s about to capsize.

We’re piecing skin and bone.

We’re meandering into the unknown.



Heart has a wide moat  

That’s just a dim end-note

All we have is Dark ink

To keep our penned Hearts a’link

Now our ship’s steadied

touch-wood we can’t sink
