Genie

Genie

granter of wishes, trapped in a vessel

escapes only by fulfilling the wishes of the one holding it

never released until the holder allows

its like being locked up, but with great power

except for one thing….it’s back to the lamp with a polish of the lamp

Canary in a Cage

Salford, 16th April 2018

A tale of life down the pits – and a very clever bird

Canary (P) Brian F Kirkham 2018

They closed all the pits

they say it wernt safe

we were digging out the props keeping land up

They said

The Gas were strong

and sending our mates

off to dreamland

forever

But as well as hammer and pick

we had a new trick

up our sleeves

to look out fer stuff we couldnt see

Bright little bird , wi

Feathers o’ yellow

Chirped away – when safe, and quiet when not

Clever little fellow

Raindrops (part ii)

Salford 2nd April 2018

rolling in from the irish sea

a thousand million raindrops fall from the heavens

in time, having made their way through the rivers and pipes , travelling

night and day, they’ll collect together and be

deposited into the local

reservoirs – where after a while – to be treated, they’ll travel

out via the city waterworks through

pipes cisterns and tanks and

someone somewhere, will enjoy fresh clean water

Look Out!

Warning

Salford, 1st April 2018

When you’re walking through the meadow – its

A good idea to watch out for any signs you might see

Roads and paths tend to merge – and even in

Normal hours – the unexpected can appear – so

If you see a sign – saying men at work

Never ignore it – or you’re

Going to fall down into a great big hole
