Sire’s So Stupid

I’ve mentioned a few times how I am a member of several community blog sites and of those writingup.com was one of the most popular. As popular as it was it didn’t managed to survive which is why I am always telling the serious blogger how they should have a blog on their own domain. Anyway, I had quite a good time on writingup, and as it turns out I was a bit of a mischievous flirt. I wrote a poem there that I called, Sire’s So Stupid, and as I recall it got quite a few comments, as did Ode To His Women, that I have posted on one of my other blogs. Perhaps some of you used to be members of the now defunct writingup, and if so you may well remember some of the bloggers in the following poem, or even in Ode To His Women. [eminimall]…

To Blog Or Not To Blog, That Is The Question

I can honestly say that I was never a great fan of Shakespeare. I was forced to read Romeo and Juliet, and while the sword fighting was cool, it was all a bit melodramatic. Then there was A Midsummer’s Night Dream, well that never really did it for me and whilst Macbeth wasn’t too bad, not one of them ever made a lasting impression. probably the only two lines that I can remember from any of his plays was ‘Alas poor Yorick, I knew him’ and ‘To be or not to be, that is the question’. Strangely enough though I remember the phrases, it wasn’t till I did an Internet search that I found they were both from Hamlet, one of his works that I’ve never actually read. It got me to thinking, what if we changed those famous words to; To Blog Or Not To Blog To blog or…

From Birth To Realization Of The Word

Well, my loyal readers, it is time to stir your emotions with another of my poems. This one is pretty different from the poems I normally come up with both in style and in content. I hope you enjoy it. Serenity, warmth, a heartbeat, Time passes. Sudden movement, pain, Pain subsides, increases and then, Brightness, noises, blurred images, Confusion, then warmth, nourishment. Time passes. Learning begins, emotions evolve Touching, tasting and exploring Laughter, cuddles and joy Life is good. Time passes Learning continues, senses throb Images invade, world’s troubles implode A shout, you bad boy stabs self Feelings hurting, confusion strikes Must withdraw for contemplation Time passes World is different, many changes Life is shared, family grows Must provide, stress multiplies Crosses to carry, more than can bear Much to carry, a man does not cry Book is read, much knowledge and parables Must assimilate Time passes Life’s troubles, always…

Some people ask me why I persist with writing poetry on my blog, especially as they don’t elicit a whole lot of comments. I tell them its because I like using poems as a form of expression and that I love to share them with people. Even if one person happens to like what I wrote then I think it was worth the effort. I wrote this after a personal experience I had in what seems to be eons ago. Some of you may not agree with my experience, unless that is you are a hot blooded Aussie male, who more than likely experienced exactly the same thing I did. And so, without further ado, My Passionate Encounter! I got her home late one night Picked her up at a bar, without a fight I have wanted her, for so long I could not wait for the last song. Up…

Blogging As A Source Of Information

The good thing about being a blogger is that not only can you share your experiences with others you can also share theirs. This is all possible through interaction with those who visit your blog and by visiting the blogs of others. I believe that interaction through commenting is the key to a successful blog which is why a lot of my posts are dedicated to different facets of commenting. Blogging is also a great way to discover new things which brings me to the crux of this post. In South Australia we have a phenomena known as the Whispering Wall which is a great little stopover when visiting the Barossa Valley, our premier wine region. Work on the dam commenced in 1899 and was completed in 1903. The design was so new it even made the Yanks sit up and take notice. At a height of 36 meters and…

Wassup Blog’s Mean Woman Blues

I think it’s time that I have a little fun with one of my poems. I reckon there are many of you who realize that I am not that great a poet but doesn’t stop me from trying to have a little fun with my poems. You may remember “Bullshit Is Not A Dirty Word“, where I changed the words of a famous Skyhooks song? Well, in this next one I played around with Roy Orbison’s Mean Woman Blues! I got a woman mean as she can be She plucks my eyes out so that I can’t see I’m screaming in pain and she just don’t care She just spits in my face and then pulls my hair Oh, pity me woman, the pain is too much Laughing hysterically she kicks me in the crutch I bend over screaming clutching my balls Thinking I am a man and I should…

Honestly, Bullshit Isn’t Really A Dirty Word

Just in case there are some of you who may find that word offensive I implore you not to read any further because it is going to come up a hell of a lot of times throughout this post. Some of us older Aussies may remember an Aussie band called Skyhooks. Well, way back in 1975 Skyhooks released their second album called “Ego Is Not A Dirty World.” I really liked that album, in fact I liked all their songs, from “Horror Movie” to “You Just Like Me ‘Cause I Am Good In Bed.” Every now and again I like to play around with a song’s lyrics and this time I thought I would have a bit of fun with “Ego Is Not A Dirty Word.” This will fit into my ‘Just For Fun Category’ as I thoroughly enjoyed making this up. Bullshit Is Not A Dirty Word If politicians…
