Wow Archie, can't believe no-one (here)has yet given you an MBE or recommended you as the new Poet Laureat (e?)
I am catching up these days and your stuff is always on my list. This is the best I've read for weeks. I won't say it's your best- it is as good as all the other stuff-which is first class excellent, though I'd tinker a bit. Add a few commas to make it flow and make it easier to read. Excuse my poor english. But I am a good reader, believe me.
Oh just noticed it IS nibbed..of course!!
Anyway nib or no nib- it gets a nib flowing with dark,delicious Quink from me.
Did someone burn down the Cutty Sark? Never heard of that. But then I am far far away sadly.
I like your questioning of moving the laser about. Yes why on earth?– ha ha lovely – I like the idea of moving it about- Not much is certain here in life is it? Sorry about the girl and her pills- I'd give her up too.
You know there is so much in this poem-
did I mention I love it ? — the rhyme appeals to me especially- being a rhyme supporter.'have a lovely week- now on to see if I can find something here that I know will only come second place, but which I may enjoy too.
best Pia xx
Ps am sharing the page you linked to on my FB – because I am addicted to FB 🙂 and think the young people's messages are vital. It is their future- liberal politicians here are pretty darn much the same.. we all need to hear other's truth's.. Thanks Archie-you really made my Sunday..
Ha ha ha… Thanks for a very kind comment. I don't think I am likely to ever receive an MBE or be made Poet Laureate. It would be a strange day indeed if ever I did…
Yes, in 2007 the Cutty Sark burned, which held up its restoration for quite some time. At first, people thought it was arson, but apparently a workman had just been careless and left something on overnight. It was big news in London for a little while.
As for the girl and her pills, I have no choice but to give her up. She has refused to speak to me for the last eight years, because she would rather have Borderline Personality Disorder for her entire life and be miserable, than take therapy, get better, and let people into her life who love her and who want her to be happy.
Yes, it's very strange, what some people want out of life. But there's nothing I can do about it.
