Windfall/Rush

74 years ago today the UK asked for help from the commonwealth to help rebuild the country Great Britain after the 2nd world war. The Jamaicans who responded to the call had no idea what they were sailing into as they arrived on the ‘Windrush’.

Many people i know knew people who came on that earlier transport and the struggle that begin for everyone since. A small gesture maybe now is displayed at Waterloo station in London to commentate and remind us all of what was and still is sacrificed considering the poor treatment of many of those who answered that call and hopefully still remain here in the UK today.

Here is my simple poetic piece on this topic of, endurance, patience, belief and the ultimate continuation to try at and go for triumph over the odds.

Windfall /Rush

They asked for our help
And we answered that call
Our mothers and fathers took their leave
Being sold the idea of a windfall

They travelled across the seas
Seeking a new future for all
Working tirelessly for the last 74 years
Still wondering where is that windfall

And now after all this time
The governing hands have ‘dropped the ball’
Losing our parental identification we ask how?
So is it time to forget about that windfall?

With honesty and integrity our parents left their homes
Diligent, and obedient working across buses, trains, and shopping malls
Helping to build a life in Britain now their home
Shouldn’t those in charge be now handing out that Windfall?

Anyone working for so long after being asked to help
Should not be treated with such shameful contempt
I truly hope our Windrush generation
Get that windfall and a message of apologies needs to be sent…

The Bond Poetic – Episode 1.25 – ‘Death has no Time’…

The 25th Bond movie finally arrived after several postponements and delays due to the covid pandemic. It also brought to bear the final outing as 007 for Mr. Daniel Craig, since he begun his stewardship in Casino Royale.

In some ways a final chapter has been written, with I’m sure a new one to take place at some point in the not too distant future. For now this is the Bond Poetic version of ‘No Time to Die’.

Death Has No Time…

The 25th film is the end?

Don’t be silly?

The next 007 is just around bend

As the hit theme song is tuned in by Billie

Swann still has a lot to hide

Her youthful nightmare won’t let go

In Bond she does not confide

As they escape the bullets from Primo

Five years go unnoticed; but is it a con?

James is now outside the spy club

Hercales is born; the new bioweapon

The killer could be a plant or a shrub

It’s Obruchev master plan

Backed by the head of MI6

Nanobots; DNA; touch; become deadpan

What was broken; can they now fix?

Steal back the mad scientist

The big bash for Mr. ESB; for sure

A new mad man turns on the mist

And ‘poof’, the old SPECTRE is no more

Ash has two faces

Leiter is no more

007 & Bond are now in a race

To get Obruchev; and even the score

Now the plan starts to go awry

From the hand of the master Safin

In prison; Bond is Blofeld’s last goodbye

As he uses the touch of miss Madeleine

Infected at Safin’s hands

Bond now knows his fate

Is he finally a father, the ‘man’

Or is he decades; far too late?

—-

Nomi and Bond plan their final attack

Safin’s missile nanobot base

Heracles bots made many; no slack

Will Madeleine and Bond get away safe?

—-

Nomi steps in to save mother & daughter

Takes them to a safe place

Safin tries to put Bond to a ‘bot’ slaughter

Bond fights back; putting Safin on his face

Mathilde and Madeleine talk to Bond

The missiles are in the air; deployed

‘The child is yours’; 007 is where he belongs

Only one choice taken; for Bond and the island to be destroyed…

Fools Company? How does your company fare?…

See below an excerpt from the book Company of Fools – a comedy drama, with a hint of romance (if you can call it that) available on amazon as a paperback or e-book.

This is the story of one man’s genuine quest to find love, a good job and maybe start a family. His name Justin Whalley. The book is written in the first person as Justin regales his various attempts to obtain or keep one or more of his ‘life goals’.

The random excerpt is from the first page I turned to when opening the novel. Halfway through chapter 9.

“Walking through the cemetery at this early hour frightened me a little. It was winter and still dark, yet the liquid spirit made me feel brave.

Stumbling through the grave yard, I struggled to navigate where my mother’s grave stone could be. Going once a month still left me confused, feeling that I never truly knew where to look, when so many headstones looked familiar. Somehow, the cemetery always seemed different to me. Maybe the drink was having an effect.

The wind calmly whistled through the dense trees that surround the cemetery. I walked following a narrow path and then cut across some grass. This was ridiculous, I couldn’t see a damn thing.

Taking each step slowly, I then found no solid ground. My whole body careered forward and downward. I screamed at the top of my voice.

There I was falling into what must be a newly dug eight foot deep grave. I landed hands first, then body. Flat out. once I regained my my senses, I turned to face, looking upward out of the grave. The darkness seemed to be swirling, moving as though some creature had just thrown me in.

I stood up and dusted myself down and immediately started to call for help.

‘Help! Help! Can anybody hear me?’ Of course no one replied.

I tried one or two more attempts to leap upward but the depth was too steep. Well that’s what I thought. Without warning, down there in the depths of this new grave , a voice spoke to me. ‘Don’t bother mate, I’ve been here all night and can’t get out’.

You’ve never heard a scream ort yell like it. My throat was sore from that yelling and screaming and boy oh boy, when I thought eight feet was too high, I could have jumped three or four times that if I had to.

I don’t know how, but I found a spring that allowed me to escape what could only be described as a spiritual experience, in some way. I know some people have the power to talk to the dead, but this was too close a call”.

Book by J W Nelson (for aged 16+)

Other books: Pentagon Pirate Gang : The Secret of the Orchard (Young Adult) – available on Amazon and in in book shops from spring this year (2022).

The Bond Poetic – All about Bond (007)

Here is a Poetic summary of the 24 James Bond films thus far (as we’re currently being entertained by film no 25 ‘No Time to Die’. (I’m hoping to see it this weekend)

You can view all 24 Bond Poetic poems (one per film from Dr No in 1963 to Spectre) on this blog or listen them on my podcast – https://anchor.fm/horace-evans8

ALL About BOND (007)

Fleming took to the sun

In a place that is heaven

To the island of beauty and fun

Where he wrote about that spy: 007
——

When the films were made

John Barry and his team knew the score

The memorable horn and wind serenade

Left us all wanting more and more
——–

It didn’t take EONs to get the party started

Sean Connery took to the lead role

Cinema goers and their cash departed

Creating a film fever that swept the globe
——-

From the doctor that always said ‘No’

To Ursula who shone like a dime

Who knew where the films would go

As Bond ‘wrestled with ‘the hand ‘ of crime
——-

007 gets wrapped up in a Russian triangle

The clerk loves him and her home

Kleb ‘points’ and dances to make Bond dangle

Then it’s time to do what they do in Rome
——-

Bond is faced with a man he can’t deny

Gold is his drug; his fix

Odd Job is strong; but he gets fried

Auric is sucked out; and into the mix

——-


And now the SPECTRE of games begin

This time Largo is bold and upfront

Bond with help ensures they don’t win

It required a very watery stunt

——–
Bond looks dead; but wait he’s reborn

He heads to Japan for an assist

When it’s the right time he’ll blow his horn

Forcing SPECTRE to cease and desist

——–
Are diamonds the forever jewel?

Bond soon learns what this means

Fighting Spectre is unusual and cruel

But 007 seems to get away clean
——

A new Bond does his serves majestic

He faces 12 angels of death

His time is fractious and hectic

As his beloved draws her last breath…

—–


The fans then asked for Moore

Roger wanted to Live & Let and Let Die

Mr Big is the enemy for sure

As Kanaga explodes into pieces of a pie

——-
Gold is back on the scene

A Gun with nuggets that kill

The mirrors reflect a face to be gleamed

Scaramanga ends up paying his bill

——
Will Bond fall for the Russian charm?

Spies are not the type to trust

They work well; she means no harm

Let’s hope the mission isn’t a bust

—–
Fly Bond to the moon…

No time to play with the stars

007 plans Drax’s end; and soon

As Jaws and Dolly don’t make the bar


Bond only has Eyes; for You

Gogol has plans in mind as well

The ATAC system ensures a right to-do

The time has come to ring the bell

——-
You can’t go wrong with eight legs

It’s not the same however for 007

A circus; a bomb; what question does it beg

Answer; they want to blow you up to heaven


The Duran Duran theme put us on the sill

Moore’s last outing; as slick as oil

Standing tall – looking at a View to a Kill

Another device is set explode and boil


Tim Dalton likes Living in the Daylight

Koskov likes to trick and deceive

Pushkin and Whitaker will perish tonight

As 007 has a few ’Q’ tricks up his sleeve


Gladys Knight has a License and will

Bond has revenge for Lieter in mind

Become a hitman – a contract to kill

Sanchez is sought out – Bond makes the find

——–

A new Bond enters the fray

Golden Eye is his first real test

Pierce as 007 fights for England without delay

Trevelyan ensures Bond works at his best

——-
Now Tomorrow arrives on time

Bond and Wai Lin fight for mankind

Carver has a story; it’s a tight deadline

The British fleet leave Carver going blind


Cheryl says the World is Not Enough

Reynard believes this to be true

007 has to get a little rough

With time running out & so much to do


Two faces belong to one man

The General’s dead son reappears

Bond doesn’t know the true global plan

But makes sure they end up in tears

——

Craig takes on the Royal reins

Gambling on poking the bear

Le Chiffre takes all of the pain

Mr. White is the man to fear

—–
There’s no time for Solace

In any Quantum of time

Greene is the one hurling malice

And now his life walks out of line


Bond returns to his Skyfall

Silva takes him back to the start

M comes up short; not that tall

007 aims with an axe to the heart

——
The reveal shows SPECTRE; ESB

The author of Bonds pain

A final fight occurs over the sea

Will we get to see ‘that cat’ ever again?

—-
The 25th episode is out now

What will Bond have to face?

Book your tickets if you’re allowed

Sit back, relax and enjoy the race…

“Embracing Fatherhood”…(a Podcast Interview with Solomon Tention & JW Nelson – and others)

As we are in Black History month – what does mean to be a father of colour? You could its the same as most other fathers. However looking at at from a personal viewpoint – most Caribbean men my age – their grand parents ere not around in the UK. Maybe your uncles were not either. Plus my parents were in a ‘new country’ here in the UK having left their homes in Jamaica.

What this means I that the ‘extended family’ that say other family who history is from England – will have local aunties, uncles, grandparents maybe nearby. I didn’t and many black father’s won’t either.

It just means there is ‘more weight’ for us to carry as ‘Black fathers’ in a world as we know is difficult for black people to navigate anyway. (for more evidence of this I encourage anyone of any colour to read Michael Holdings thought provoking book : Why We Kneel – How we Rise.
