After being given advice from a newly established friendship I have decided to begin, and keep, a blog. I hope I do not fall into the mundane, but if I do, I will try my best to spruce it up as much as I can.
This first blog started out as a friggin essay. While I was doing my essays for college I would look at the word count and begin to shake. Yesterday, in less than 30 mins I had babbled out over 1200 words of bollocks. Solution; put all the relevant info into a poem. Short, clean and hopefully worthy.
London to Manchester, North to South
Corrie versus Eastenders, all gobshite and mouth
With an eeeorrrr one orders, a pastry at Greggs
Down there they sit quaintly, a patisserie, crossed legs
London, The City, a heartbeat, I doubt
Arrive their so lean, and slender then stout
Feathers start to ruffle, and shuffle and spread
Soaring through skyscrapers, money in ahead
Coach pulls in slowly, a rush, a stampede
Sharp nudge, smelly armpits, a hug or a squeeze?
Door trembles and shakes, deep fear for its life
The people they glare with anger and strife
Friday is nigh-day for weekend and calm
Residents decelerate in a silent sung psalm
Clouds become sparse, bright sun in high sky
Filled Broadway Market, sweet yummy almond pie
Eyes suddenly grounded, no shock or demur
Big shops on New Bond Street, pass and obscure
First weekend in London, my heartbeat no doubt
I crave to return, with more than a pout
