What? Shaw, Heaney, Eliot and Yeats
never had a blown fuse in their lofty pates??
Unless you are out for the Kavanagh Prize
your disapprobation is certainly unwise.
At least you know the difference between their and there
which the bulk of those here are so unaware.

Spelling counts, at least in my eyes,
but mis-typed words I shall not chastise.
There's such a huge difference 'tween a mere typing error
and the blatantly outrageously eegits needing a censor.
Your thoughts concerning glasses or more education
are not indications of a needed brain renovation .
At our age have you thought of a small hormone injection?
Might add some new brain cells add oomph to your erections
Yeppers, this is the route I'd definitely trod
more wattage in the noggin, more bulk in the wad :)

heavens to Betsy, I'm getting to be such a hussy in my old age!!!!!!!!!

p.s. i've got a family wedding in Dungannon next year
beware the crazy irish-american combing thru the pubs for you - you have been warned!

this was one was different
a bird in reflection
the mirror of time
creeping forward and back
a song sweeter
with unruffled feathers
just a bird
gripping the railing
watching the alley cats
slinking around
ignoring their sly purrs

lol, no one can hold a candle to you birdman,
you make me laugh,
you make me cheer,
you make me want to be a better human being.

why are you wasting yourself on an obscure dating site?
your poems need to find a home, a small enchiridion perhaps,
or many small collections, little roman-flueves,
topical tomes constantly flowing forth from your prodigious archives,

i say get a setting,
a fictional local pub,
supposedly penning there all these hysterical takes
on life,
each book one topic.

i swear you'd sell a kajillion-million-billion-trillion of 'em,
you'd be rich,
have every woman from England,
both Irelands
Scotland pining after you
you'd never have to worry 'bout a date again
it would take off like WHERE'S Waldo?
It'd be Where's the Birdman?
morphing into pub tours
people searching for the elusive
amazing poet,
a win-win for one and all,
the pub owners
the public.
What fun. Do it Bird, fly out of this cage and into the huge world.

BUT::::::::::::::; not forever, this flat waveless sea would be unbearable without you!

ah yes, booze here flows all around
but nothing beats jamesons
to that i am bound
or whoopsy-do fun
with Bailey's Irish cream
or a wee drop of Mist,
or Guinness will be
used now and then,
never too much
my genetic code's that
of the provervbial Irish Lush
me brothers and sisters
are all reeling drunks
me aunts, uncles, cousins
love shooting up junk
yeah me clan's a mess
everyone is addicted
but i'm telling ya true
i've never been a sick kid
nope never been strung out
on toilets bent, retching
i eschew all that excess
it really ain't fetching
especially at my age
you can't meet your doom
as a pathetic old hag
passed out in a bar room
and no, quite sadly
i have to admit,
i never watch sports
it all gives me fits
all that sweat, all that brawn
all that noise, crowds a'roar
oh no, i find it
a terrible bore
i'd rather be biking
or at the sea shore
in nice parks i'm hiking
and there's plenty more
things much more fun surely
than watching men hurl
their fists in the air crowing
I'm King of The World


jaysus, mary and joseph i hate to rhyme,
my poor aging brain is completely fried
but good luck to auld Ireland in the next round
those poor feckless goombahs should never have tried
to beat the best of the toughest and true
the stout-hearted Irish surely will rule
win all the trophies, bring home the gold
the green white and orange the world will behold

T'was once a fair poet went by Bird on the Wire
t'was said of the elfin Bird, he writes sonnets for hire
so I asked him when he'd finished
if I could pay him off in Guiness
and ever since we have been sitting in the pub down in the shire

Yo bird, long time. Cheers, mate!

marriage doesn't work
he yells, she screams, the dog cowers, the cat dies
when are men happy, when they are with other men
be it sports, military, bars, prison
it all ends the same
so don't feel cheated
we weren't meant to be together
I am sad to say
I am happiest alone
good day

I'm a woman
that's for sure
but your words, bird,
we've hear them before....

You want beauty,
no brains and bust
don't care who we are
all you do is lust...

You're a bottomless pit
a hole in a well
you're like humpty dumpty
so helpless when you fell....

Oh, getting carried away
with what I wanted to say
and that is, my dear man,
you know I'm a fan....

Of your words and your banter
and your natural canter
as you write with such glee
and upmost honesty....

What most men would say
if they could write your way
a quite funny version of sarcastic and gay :)
now you go and have yourself a really nice day!

thank you dear bird
for the humour of your word
i laugh with glee
reading your poetry
you're satire at its best
writing in your pants and vest
you know i jest
and yet
it's part of the internet
hiding our identity
think it adds
to your sarcastic security
or absurdity...

wow - an itch to scratch
written so perfectly
and genuinely...

and this one above
so true dear bird
and they wonder why we think they're absurd
when we all know it's the written word
that leads us down a blind alley indeed
peering and peaking, no need for speed...

it's the written word we read with anticipation
suspended animation
holds our fascination....

it's the written word
in all our reading
that draws our energy so
and leaves us free
the mind at ease
the heart drawn in
with compassion....

so keep on writing
with all you've got to give
for it's all in the writing
the words with which we live

and those empty profiles
void of our beloved words
honestly, friend,
they're for the birds!

oh bird
you're still so
wonderful absurd
laughter overflowing
caught on every word
a smile keeps escaping
you're ingeniously amazing
not like the rest of the herd

especially loved question and answer and living in a rat race xo

that'll be ms. to you
or d, my dear friend....

been a long time comin'
been wonderin' when
the rain in your land
will stop on command
or just give you a break
from the ever-present lake
for i've heard it's disaster
from my beloved daughter
who lives south in exeter
and sharing your weather....

she says the rain, dear bird,
well it's totally absurd
been flooding the streets
been flooding the land
you cry, my dear man,
for while it's raining buckets there
it's been the driest summer here
so dry the fires are disaster this year....

yes, we're all out of whack
and the environmental crack
is starting to show
now who's to say
how it will play
but for now let's pray
for balance this day
or i fear armageddon
is not far away

with short little lines a few words long
he pens a painting most often quite long
his poems long and narrow though his vision wide
with little to hide and much to deride

a small little sparrow flitting wire to wire
seeming never to pause yet never to tire
t'were it ink from a pen on a parchment quite long
many pints of black would be long gone

all the best to you, birdy!

^^ awww, bird....still so absurd
with such an amazing gift of the word
your reflections and keen perception
leaves much for the imagination
to step into your world
and the state of the girl
you met, perhaps last night,
then proceeded in flight
the way all good birds do
when the meeting is through
to return to the page
and write like a sage
with your infamous cheek
that never is meek
but i know you my dear
and you really are sweet

happiest of new years to you! xo
