Shifting Sands

There was a woman and a man with children very grand,

Who lived a life of ease, I hereby say,

But the woman and the man passed away, shifting sands,

Now their children hardly speak or see each other any day,

What is wrong with them, you ask, have they not yet grasped,

The why and wherefore we are here on earth, the way,

We should offer love and kind and always bear in mind,

We are treading on the soil for but short a stay.


Earth flight is so fleeting

My CRAZYMAD Life: Grasshoppers, anyone?


My CRAZYMAD Life: Grasshoppers, anyone?

I told you in an earlier blog post how much I have traveled, to places like Africa, The Philippians, Europe (I loved Venice), Australia, Egypt, Thailand – even Cuba.
One of the most recent countries that I have had the pleasure of visiting is Madeira. It’s a small and quiet place, but there is something so special about it. I can’t quite put my finger on it, though. I will be returning there again.
In case you’re wondering why there is a picture of a grasshopper at the top of this page,
I will explain…
I ate grasshoppers, and giant ones at that!!!
I ate them while holidaying in Thailand – and they were okay – they really were. The locals deep-fry them in oil, like chips, yummy. Having said that, I have to admit that I tactfully refused the offer of deep-fried scorpions – I had to draw the line somewhere!

What is peace – does anyone really know?

I’ve searched so hard, but it evades me so!

Will I ever know its sweet embrace,

Its soothing touch, its saving grace?

Or will I just fumble from day to day,

‘Till I can dream no more and fade away?

Monty Python – Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life – Life of Brian

Monty Python – Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life – Life of Brian

Some things in life are bad.
They can really make you mad.
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you’re chewing on life’s gristle,
Don’t grumble. Give a whistle.
And this’ll help things turn out for the best.

Always look on the bright side of life.

Always look on the light side of life.

If life seems jolly rotten,
There’s something you’ve forgotten,
And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you’re feeling in the dumps,
Don’t be silly chumps.
Just purse your lips and whistle. That’s the thing.

Always look on the bright side of life.

(Come on!)

Always look on the right side of life,

For life is quite absurd
And death’s the final word.
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin.
Give the audience a grin.

Enjoy it. It’s your last chance, anyhow.

Always look on the bright side of death,

Just before you draw your terminal breath.

Life’s a piece of shit,
When you look at it.
Life’s a laugh and death’s a joke. It’s true.
You’ll see it’s all a show.
Keep ’em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

Always look on the bright side of life.

Always look on the right side of life.

(Come on, Brian! Cheer up!)

Always look on the bright side of life!

Always look on the bright side of life!

(Worse things happen at sea, you know!)

Always look on the bright side of life!

(I mean, what you got to lose? You know, you come from nothing, you’re going back to nothing. What have you lost? Nothing!)

Always look on the bright side of life!

(Nothing will come from nothing. You know what they say?)

Always look on the bright side of life!

(Cheer up, you old bugger! Come on, give us a grin! There you are! See?)

(It’s the end of the film. Incidentally, this record’s available in the foyer.)

Always look on the bright side of life!

(Some of us have got to live as well, you know.)

(Who do you think pays for all this rubbish?)

Always look on the bright side of life!

(They’ll never make their money back, you know. I told him.)

(I said to him, ‘Bernie.’ I said, ‘They’ll never make their money back.’)

Always look on the bright side of life!

Don’t be Like Sheep

Don’t be like sheep that creep half asleep,

Each and every day of their lives,

Believing what is said, drummed into their heads,

By those in control, selling lies.

Instead, use your head, and question what is said,

By those who think they can guide,

You with dreams, consumer items and things,

To distract you from what is inside,

Inside of us all, potential so tall,

The power of the Universe, it’s true,

So look deep inside and search for the light,

Of Creation; waiting there especially for you.



I don’t care what you call me

as long as you enjoy reading my stories

By W T Goodge

Infant; teething,

Thrush and croup,

Schoolboy; marbles,

Top and hoop,

Youth; sweet picnics,


Cricket, football,

Sundry bets!


Young man; courtship,

Lovely she,

Married; youngsters,

Two or three,

Worry, trouble,

Smile and frown,

“In memoriam,

William Brown!”

Normal People

Normal People


What is normal, I ask of you?

Why does everyone aspire, of this, to do?

Why can’t they stop and think again?

Then reject normality, both women and men.

Why do they follow, like cattle do?

I am sure they know it, know that it’s true.

Perhaps acting, so, gives them peace of mind,

Or perhaps it lessens the daily grind,

Pain, however, MUST be met head on,

By doing so we can then move on.

The Fertilizer Mine

The Fertilizer Mine

(From the story Alice in Wonderland on Top of the World)

Fertilizer is a thing we don’t always sees,

Though it’s used quite a lot, know yous this if yous please.

It’s a spread on the ground, all around and around,

The plants that are a needing it, by the once and the pound.

Oh, I’s loves my business when I’m mining the stuff,

I’s carts it around and then I’s bags it right up.

I’s stores it away until it’s needed, for sure,

T’bring on the plants in a glorious rapport.

I’m the luckiest, here, elf in charge of this mine,

This wonderful place, the luckiest of finds.

I’s thank my stars that I’s can be of some help,

T’bring on the plants into a wonderful health.

T’end this here ditty, hear you this boys and girls,

If yous ever come t’visit the top of the world,

Yous’ll get a right welcome and a tour of this mine,

Then return home again in a new frame of mind.

Lead a Good Life

Lead a good life; full to the brim.

Enjoy each day as if it’s the last one you win,

Show by example how much you can do,

Whilst here on this plane, this earthly pursuit,

And when you’re in bed, deathly, so grim,

You will gaze up from it with a wink and a grin,

Saying, I lived a good life; full to the brim,

Leading by example, never lecturing about sin,

When you close my eyes for the last time on earth,

Angels will surround you, guiding you forth,

Through the pearliest of gates they will lead the way home,

To God’s heavenly love, sitting adjacent his throne.
