POETIQUETTE... COMING SOON!

NEW EDITION AVAILABLE IN MAY...

Hello beasties!

This post I'm going to remind you of the up and coming 10th anniversary reissue of POETIQUETTE that I am aiming to have ready by May; although I've been slowed down a bit by a bad leg this last month so there may be some delay. You wouldn't think a bad leg could scupper something produced via the internet, now would you? Well, that's only because bits of the book are in one location and bits of the book are in another location and I can't get between the two right at the moment.

Okay... Having explained that, I've not got a lot more to add other than to say that I am busy with all my projects - mainly working on scripts for THE BEAST OF FRIENDS, HOT STUFF! and KENSINGTON GORE, which are all coming along nicely... There is even a photo someone in this post of an idea that suddenly came to me for one of the scripts that I ended up scribbling down on the back on a used train ticket! Now, if that's not a good example of recycling then I don't know what is?!

The rest of this post is made up of a mixture of photos from my last few weeks. Cats, graveyard, pot-plants and the usual selfies taken as I've hobbled down to the shops with my bad leg. All that and a poem from the 10th anniversary re-issue of POETIQUETTE.












Coming up at the end of this blog is a poem called CAKE AND EAT IT... from POETIQUETTE. It's daft. I hope you enjoy it!

Next time I aim not to be hobbling around this blog - I'm not sure yet what are of my writing that I'll be typing about... Should I leave on a cliff-hanger? *falls off cliff* There, you go...

More soon!

Yeti hugs,

Paul xx

CAKE AND EAT IT…

I want my cake and eat it!!
Well, that's surely what it's for!!
Don’t wanna sit and stare at it…
No, what I wanna do is GNAW!!!
What’s the point of simply hoarding it?
Or in doing what I’m told!?
Where’s the sense in merely leaving it;
Until it’s nothing more than mould!?
 
I might have my cake and share it -
Kick those shoes off for a chat!
Cosy up here with a Battenberg;
Yeah, I’ll have a bit of that!
But then if I make to share it –
Won't it vanish in a trice?
You lot would surely gobble it…
No, never leave a single slice!
 
I might have my cake and freeze it!
Keep it safe another day…
Catch it now and quickly chill it…
Yes, save if fresh, without delay!
Stick a lock upon my freezer –
Before I’m readying to leave…
Couldn’t trust, not even, one of you…
My poor cake you’d likely thieve…

Yes, I shall make my cake and bake it...
True! And keep it all to ME!!
Then stuff my face to bursting!
Washing down with pints of tea…
Yes, I’ll have my cake and eat it…
Don’t try a trick! D’you think I’m dumb!?
No, I shall not hide, nor share it…
This one is mine…
YES, EVERY CRUMB!!!
