Sunshine, not fire! xx


J U S T   D R E A M I N G !


Waking up, of Cyprus I've been dreaming

Brave fireman  keeping all of Pafos calm

Dear Theatre Friends,  panto they are scheming

My snoring causes early "bed alarm"!  (Help!)

Geoff Greavey singing, hear his dulcet tone

With lots of laughter, Tommy Cooper's joke

Young Codie's "Star", "You'll get it!", never moan!  ("If You Wish")

Les Arnold smiles, he was a darling bloke

Poor Koili Hill is burning, 'hear my sighs

From Tala viewing, panic setting in

We hate to see such cloud-filled. choking skies

Man fag-end throws, such action is a sin!

I close my eyes, with sunshine on a pool

It's raining here, now tell me: "Who's the fool?" 13/07/2021 xxxx

Pinkie Lightly

Really sprightly

Likes a drink at least twice nightly

What about the afternoon?

Wine-o'-clock can't come too soon!


House is boiling

Pete is toiling

Glass of beer his throat he's "oiling"!

'See he is "Computer King"

We can hear the keyboard zing!


Air-con broken

Fan's a token?

Pinkie's face is rather "oaken"

Time to phone an engineer

But for Pete?... Another beer!


Pool inviting

So exciting?

'Bet my verse she is reciting!  (Really?)

Glass of wine, it's really cool

Dear Old Pinkie: no one's fool!


Not much walking?

Drink and talking

Soon Dear Pete she's started stalking  (Why?)

Pegeia Queen is going out

Darts are singing soon, no doubt!


Louise crooning

Pete is swooning? (Really?)

And they're "Carolina-Mooning"

Sing a song for Manic Dave

Bow and then from Cleveleys 'wave!


Pinkie Lightly

Smiling brightly

She's a queen, and we say "rightly"

See you soon at Mario's......

I will bring my "Lankie Rose"  (Eileen)  10/07/2021 xxxx

Fi-re Fighters

Brave Mid-Nighters

'Got to stop the foul Fire-Lighters!

Cigarettes and "barbies" burn  (Barbecues)

Will these people ever learn?


Heroes fighting


All the blazing fields they're "righting"

Helicopters soon arrive

Will the burning fields survive?



"Stop the slaughter!"

"We are doing what we ought'a!"

Spilling water on the blaze

"Cyprus Mail" they all amaze!


Troodos burning

Stripes they're earning

For some rain they all are yearning!

Martyn watching from his van

Always working when he can!


Tala villa

Fire killer

Almost like a "Movie-Thriller"

Fire blazing, Koili Hill

This is just a bitter pill!


'Heroes cheering

Nothing fearing

Afterwards, we hope theyre "beering"!  (Keo?)

Thankful for their "braveree"

'Want to keep the country free!  (Of fire!)


So amazing

Guys we're praising

Countryside no longer blazing

Raise a glass to bravest guys

Write their names high in the skies!  07/07.2021 xxxx
