The Little Wooden Hut

The granite brick façade

The Mc Henry called

The day the cat had

                Kittens in the yard

The day the fire broke out

The day my hair turned white

The day my wife found out

The day the gin ran out

The day the sun came out

 

The day I wore

                My yellow tie

And found myself

                Alone at last

 

In a little wooden hut

                Beside the sea.

 MY DREAMS

I once had dreams

Of being famous

 

Painting portraits

Of her highness

 

Capturing all her

Pomp and fineness

 

On a splendid

Gold framed

Canvas

 

Humbly knighted

For my deeds

 

But now alas

I must confess

 

That failure

Is my lonely

Path

 

My paintings

Hang beside

My bed

 

Fruit and roses

On a dish

 

And a portrait

Of a frozen

Fish

 

But my favourite

 

Yes the one propped

Up beside my bed

 

Is a portrait of her

Royal highness

 

Capturing all her

Pomp and fineness

 

Copied from a

Postage stamp.
