BEAUTIFUL  BALI

A SERIOUS CHANGE!

        E U R O - D W A R F S    

 

The seven dwarfs.. transforming the U.K.

They're tired of the chaos Londow-way

"Wallpaper problems", not for them they say

'Don't need a flat... a garden, month of May!

They're feeding homeless, Dopey's changed his name

"Enough with Boris!", Doc, he has a plan

Just happy dwarfs, like Starmer gaining fame

"All bungs, corruption", we give them a BAN!

"So loving, 'don't do Grumpy!" Sneezy smiles

Poor Sleepy has to learn to stay awake

A Commons' life?... He'd rather have the piles!

A swim along the Thames for his health's sake

United Dwarfs, a Euro flag they hold

From Prague to Paris, they are all so BOLD!"  31/05/2021 xxxx

 

A BRITISH HERO!

TRUE EUROBRIT

"B R I T I S H N E S S"

 

Britishness

I confess

Leaves my mind all in a mess

Time to buy a British ship?

"Come on, BJ, get a grip!"

 

Down the aisle

"All" will smile

Walking p'rhaps an "English" mile?

Jet is flying overhead

Giving England: "Great Steet Cred"!

 

Robinson  (Jason?)

"Someone's son"  (Jamaican father)

'Captain's England, much more fun?

Jason, though, is very black

"Should have given him the sack!"

 

"Billy Whizz"

Game is his!

He's the King of "Rugby Bizz"!  (Business!)

Jinking run, he scores a try

Write his name high in the sky!

 

Insult all

"Have a ball!"

'Less they're white, 'don't want at all!"

"Lady" insults "blackest trash" (South Africans!)

Types like her deserve a bash!

 

"Don't like Poles" (Winter Gardens)

English "goals"

Rather have "pure British moles"?

"Eurobrit, 'hate prejudice

Harmony my only wish!

 

British tea

Rosie Lea

Slopes of Pennines, Yorkshire tree?  (Mum's idea!)

British pizzas, made in Hull

Life in Britain... never dull?

 

Hitler fan  (Fascist neighbour?

British man

Does a goose-step, when he can!

Arm is raised, he hates "All Krauts"

Referendum, now no doubts!     

 

Britishness

"All" confess...

Better off with "Good Queen Bess"?

Middle Ages, very wise?

Rather have those Euro guys?  Written after watchg a Sky interview with Jason Robinson.  30/05/2021  xxxx

 

 

ITALIAN DREAM!

      E U R O V I S I O N

 

Eurovision! Eurovision!

Britain treated with derision

Italy the "Eurokings"

And the leader hardly sings!  

 

"Little Britain"! "Little Britain!"

By a Nasty Nought soon bitten!

Not too good for sunny Spain?

Germany too feels the pain!

 

Jamie Newman! Jamie Newman!

Points you earned were rather few, man!

"Come back Sandie Shaw!", some say

On this tragic day in May

 

Tattoo Creature! Tattoo Creature

Not the most redeeming feature?

Rotterdam to earn some fame

Damiano is his name!

 

Music's Winning! Music's Winning!

Many songs quite soon we're "binning"!

Switzerland and Malta shine

France was also so divine?

 

Tactic Voting! Tactic Voting

Ukraine soon for Russia "doting"?

Shock, as Greece for Cyprus votes?

"Yiamas!", coming from our throats!

 

Music Rocking! Music Rocking!

Taking drugs is rather shocking?  (Only rumours?)

Only thought: embarrassment

Contest hardly Heaven sent?

 

Eurovision! Eurovision!

Europe is in great division

Time to wave this show Goodbye

Nul points written in the sky!  Amen xx  22/05/2021 xx

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"The place to go!" xx

LYTHAM VISIT

C A F E    T H O U G H T S 

 

"Central Beach", great cafe, deli'

"Give some pleasure to your belly!"

Cappuccino, buttered scone

'Rather cold for ice-cream cone?  (Only just?)

 

Take a seat and soon we're "scone-ing"

All are smiling, no one moaning!

Lytham for a peaceful walk

Sitting down, we start to talk

 

Sheltered corner, coffee sipping

Rufus smiling, place is "ripping"!

Scone with jam and lots of cream

Of our holidays we dream....

 

Cyprus or Madeira calling

Many trips we are recalling

Heinz's birthday, "Spring of Life"  (Amargeti)

He's so happy with his "wife"!

 

Funchal, Mark and Sandra talking

'Long levadas we are walking

Day so peaceful, sea of blue

'Feel our dreams have all come true!

 

Back in Lytham, windmill turning

For more trips we both are yearning

Sheffield, let's go to the Keys

Water there to bathe my knees?

 

"Central Beach", a weekly pleasure

Yummy food and, at your leisure

Strolling slowly to our car

Citroen Cactus... We'll go far!  17/05/2021 xxxx

BIKING TIMES

B I K E    O R    C A R ?

 

Back in Cyprus.. BIKING TIMES

"Sharon, can you ride in rhymes?"

I am viewing Garden Car

'Guess it cannot go that far?

 

Whizzing on a Troodos track

With a rucksack on her back

Meanwhile, car will never budge

.Might be stuck in "weedy sludge"!

 

"Cycling" with her racing pals

'Not sure there are many gals?

Car moved last Two Thousand Ten

Driven by the "Mister Men"?

 

Bikers making lots of noise

On their speeding racing toys

We prefer a bit of calm

Far away from Weed Alarm!

 

On those hills, just up, then down!

Smiling always, never frown!

Seagull plops on bonnet splash!

Gives side mirror mighty bash!

 

Lania, wave to Andrew O'

Racing Bikers..'loves them so!  (Really?)

Sooty lands to cast a spell

P'rhaps he's taking car to Hell?

 

Coffee break with fish and chips

Mushy peas pass hungry lips

Car allowed to rot in peace

From the stress of gulls release?

 

Back at base, a Scrabble game

Jane, of swimming / walking fame!

Car now on a funeral pyre

Lots of smoke and crackling fare!  Amen xxxx

 

Neighbour's car has not moved for ten years from his garden. We need an escape! xxx

 

UN PARADIS! xx

E U R O B R I T xx

O U R   T R A V E L   B U G !

 

Marsh Mill calling!

Meals recalling

Shops still closed, it's so appalling!

Sharon's walking, Pafos coast

Cyprus 'guess just is the most!

 

Windmill turning

Sunshine "burning"  (Thornton?)

For a Leon I am yearning!

Grilled Halloumi, "Spring of Life"  (Amargeti)

Fish and salad for my wife

 

Lytham walking

Many talking

At that White Church, left we're forking

Tommy thinking of Les D'  (Ray Kilvington)

High atop the "Joker's Tree"!

 

Fleetwood "hiking"

Prom' for biking?

Sand hills much more to our liking!

Blue Church reached by Sharon, Jane....

Not much chance of heavy rain!!

 

Cyprus, Britain

Poems I've written

By the Travel Bug we're smitten

See you later in the year

Mario's for Leon beer!   "Yiamas!") 27/04/2021 xxxx

 

 

Blackpool heaving

Dodging, weaving

Many smokers: heavy breathing!

Jane and Enid walking proud

'Neath a sky without a cloud!
