The tide will turn

Poetic licence included. Wing nut will know where the school bully lived.

 

THE TIDE WILL TURN.

 

I wasn't born quite a loser,

More relegation zone I'd say;

Early worm instead of early bird,

Picked on every day.

 

My teacher didn't like me,

Thought King Herod had it right;

Milk monitor; filling ink-wells,

Yours truly - never quite.

 

School bully shared my sixpence,

Even let me write his 'lines';

Nitty Nora came to goo my hair,

Strange comb, with many tines.

 

Children used to call for me,

Is my ball coming out to play?

Picking sides, one left over,

Ah well - another day!

 

Eenie meenie was surely fixed,

Paranoid? - well just a jot;

Dandelion 'clock' couldn't tell the time,

The next one 'loved me not'.

 

Second violin in an orchestra,

Good job there was no third;

Still, every tide must surely turn,

Watch out you early bird.

 

Friday the 13th I met her,

The omens weren't that good;

Asked her if she'd marry me,

Surprisingly, she would.

 

Unlucky as a parent,

Two boys - I wanted girls;

Grand-daughters before we knew it,

Never seen such lovely curls!

 

I'm 78 now - doing fine,

The 'winners' they've all passed;

Don't take this as a grumble,

Even God picks me the last.

Absolutely brilliand Harry.... loved reading that and I could even visualise you and your little 'predicaments' with the horrid kids and adults. Rather sad in a way but humorous... all at the same time :D:wink:

 

I really look forward to your peoms, keep them coming they are wonderful :D

Dizzy, call in at the Cantilever chippie or the Lousher's Lane paper shop and get a copy of West Side. he has another one in the that.

Excellent as usual.

Peter,

No doubt Dizzy will pick your comment up. Some in that magazine are the ones I referred to above.

 

Believe that excellent little magazine is in danger. two months compressed into one I believe for the next one, which may well be the last as production is difficult for oldies.

 

Best wishes Happy days

Harry, No definite decision has been taken. We will review things in the New Year. Bi-monthly could be an option, we will weigh up all the options, and hopefully maintain production in one form or another.

We had some help with the stapling this time and that made a big difference.

PS This one is a Dec/Jan issue to give us a rest over the festive season.

I'll make a donation :D

 

Must cost you a fortune to print yourself unless you've got a kodak. Surely cheaper to get it printed 'elsewhere' though :wink:

 

Not cheaper. We got a grant for the printers, and beg steal and borrow for the running costs, ie paper and toners.

PS, Don't give any donations to where you get it from. :wink:
