Under the Influence



My wife doesn't know
I sneak out for Brandy

She lives two blocks over
Which I find rather handy

A lead from the fluent
More often than not
Is guise of the most truant
Under the influence of rot

Evil Nod

The search copter swirled
a red and yellow car in its sights
They backed their prey into a corner
and centred the blinding lights

A dozen dead from hit and runs
committing crime after crime
The notorious madman Noddy
was not getting away this time

Lost Phone

I lost my phone, which held weeks of posts and other material.
I have little time to catch up with my schedule so this week will be filled with a disorderly assortment of whatever comes to mind.

    1. I would go that far.
      The first I wrote watching my kids at the park. My son for an empty brandy premix can and it popped into my head.
      Can’t remember where the second came from.
      The third I wrote putting the kid’s to bed after reading a story about big ears bicycle for the fifth time in two days.

    1. “Get out of the way big ears, you’re going to hit my car.” Not the other way around 🤣
      Every noddy book when some bad happens the answer is, ‘it was the goblins.’ no proof, no trial. It’s a fact in their minds. Probably should stop reading them to the kids 🤣💚
