School – It makes you think…

When I think of going to school
I think about not breaking rules
To think of things that are nice and good
I do think about my school: my neighbourhood
—-
To think of all our teachers that help
We should think & behave; so there’s no need to yelp
Thoughts of playing with our friends
Thinking of a time when we can meet again
—-
Thinking today of our school year
Thinking of my parents worries and fears
I can think that soon this time will end
I can think of home school: that email to send
—-
Thinking of what I really long for
Thinking I really want to learn more
Thinking of the laughing and squealing
Thinking; how is everyone feeling?
—-
Thinking of getting back to my school
Thinking of all the things that make it cool
I think I like the reading and numbers best
I think I we will all pass this test
—-
I do think we will find the time
I’m thinking this as I write this rhyme
My thoughts won’t put you on the brink
I just know how School makes me think…

New Year Wishe(s)

So I guess it’s time to wish

The new year I hope will spark

New beginnings, a new healthy dish

Hard work maybe, with a little walk in the park
Bright, positive hopes 

Coupled with realistic plans

No flight, keep the fight to cope

Resist the temptation for  the’beer cans’ 
Upward, onward, hoisted on the expectant breeze 

2017 is our story yet to be written 

Delivery of your goal is yours to seize 

We reach our targets as we are smitten
Hooked onto the unexpected 

Galvanise all of our effort and time

Never let our family, role,survival be neglected 

Live our lives, day by day as a rhyme…

Final stage ‘yes we are ready’ (for the season) Day 24

Yes it’s nearly here now

Special time with family 

Togetherness reins and how

As another door is opened by a unique key
Unlock the spirit to always care

Survival through effort allows us to cope

We see you all at yours , here and there 

Aiming for the target of fervent hope…
Happy Christmas

Stage 4 ‘nearly there'(for the season) Day 23

Chilling in my room

Waiting for the day

Listening to Christmas sonic booms

As I shade from sun, reminding me of May…

Stage 4 ‘final prep’ (for the season) Day 22

As we party into the night

Celebrate the time and season

Everything will be just right

When we get ‘that gift’ for a reason 
Anticipation reins supreme 

The annual lesson repeats

When we awake will it be a dream?

Or will Expectations be delivered right to our feet?…

Stage 4 ‘ready and waiting’ (for the season) Day 21

Let’s hunker around the t.v.

Grab a drink, maybe some beer or wine

Christmas equals everyone and me

Celebrating the season is divine…

Marvel (ous) Universe Begins- Part 1

 

The Strength of the HULK

The speed of IRON MAN

To beat you to a pulp

Or crush you like a tin can

 

The God-like power of the THOR

The return of CAPTAIN AMERICA’s Steve

The action, never will it bore

Or make you want to get up and leave

 

The mind altering prowess of XAVIER

The cutting, sharpness of the WOLVERINE

Could Charles be mankind’s ultimate saviour?

A showstopper if put on our screens…

 

Would Jean Grey ‘lift’ our wilting mood

Could MAGNETO ‘attract’ our me(n)tal attention?

If they had children  – what an awesome brood

The road to mutant revolution or cessation?

 

Eye wonder how CYCLOPS sees things?

The intelligent BEAST would confur maybe?

The future is here for super human beings

Shield’s response would be swift and scathing?

 

What does Fury know

You understand he could be mimicked by Raven

Her effervescent  camouflage never shows

As she cleverly hides inside her own little haven

 

Sticking to our human nature we look to the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

Is he related to the mysterious BLACK WIDOW?

He lives in an apartment no bigger than a tin can

This Russian keeps secrets she wants no one else to know

 

Apparently an apocalyptic event is upon us

Will we be rescued and at what cost?

A few mum’s and Dad’s with some extra Vitamin B+?

I’m waiting to be saved by a certain Emma Frost….

The Journey (the 4th in the Tube Traveller Diaries)

 

st panc

Where I arrive and leave…

 

Where to start

maybe at the beginning

Train was late

Left my head spinning

 

worried about the underground

headache on the way

change of plans in effect

Taxi – is now the order of the day

 

missed the rocking and rolling

the warm stuffy atmosphere

missed the close proximity

of not being on board there

exit St. Pancras

waiting ages for mr. black cab

we debated the scrouge of Mr Uber

the conversation was anything but drab

heading for a Brunei owned park lane hotel

I only do upmarket you see

the doorman open my taxi door

there I was, out stepped, little old me

 

the deed was done

the return was now planned

Green Park Tube was calling me

for today however; the tube was banned

green park

The name actually makes sense…parks are usually green…

maybe on another day

me and my TFL travellers will unite

enjoying the flexible JOURNEY

that operates any day and any night..

 

Starting School

When your 4 years old or nearly 5

You have to take a big step

Your next leap makes you feel alive

And fills you up with Pep

So get your school uniform on

Get those shoes polished and shining

It’s time to get ready- get gone

No time to get wingeing and whining

Mum and dad will look after you

Your new teachers will make sure you’re okay

You’ll make new friends- yes your very own crew

You’ll be beeming by the end of the school day

Take comfort you’re not the only one

Remember millions play by the same rules

Make sure you learn to have fun

As you cross the line by starting school
