Is the insta-con


A season’s
A moment to


Had enough of reality
Perception getting you down
Chill dude
Time to delude
Take a Quaalude

Found in all disreputable outlets.


President Reagan banned the domestic production and sales of Quaaludes in 1984. Despite this, there are still labs making Quaaludes in Mexico and elsewhere in the world. The drug is also still found in India and South Africa, although under different names.

Prickly is the pear
Which dares not venture outside
Nor prepares a ripe beach body
Only preferring to hide the hide


In the future
When clams can commune
Will the word ‘clammy’
Be deemed a derogatory term?


I’ll take you home
Even though
I know I’m not your
Hit you with my
Never fail move
Upside your head
With a pipe


I wonder if the masked villain
Specialised in stealing just one thing
ever reconsidered
His life choices.
Would he choose
the same object of his desires?
I’m sure
I’m not the only one who wants to know,
where is the hamburglar now?

  1. Brilliant words, Mouse. I love the ‘clammy’ verse. I also took a brief look at the MacDonalds link – it’s all pretty revolting over there. I had no idea that their fries had over 19 different ingredients in them. Yuk! I won’t be buying those anymore. Don’t worry, I won’t tell them that I learnt it from you! 😊

    1. Thank you. Always fun to twist a word.
      I ate McDonald’s religiously in my younger years like most but learnt the error of my ways in adulthood.
      That being said, even if I wanted McDonald’s my wife would let me 🤣
