I've been a bit rough lately and haven't followed ABC for a week

Posted on Fri, 09 Feb 2018

This morning I found this gem. This is so visual to me. I see everything in black and white, not because it's like an old movie or an early Ken Loach play of the week, but because it tells a story, or should that be the story, of mining...

Great stuff it's about time we had poems about this problem

Posted on Fri, 04 May 2018

A cheap form of...

They'll eat you (some anyway) and they'll accept your food, care and love, if they need it.

Unconditional. They don't give a monkey's jerk-off what you look like, what colour you are what religion you are or how pig fucking ugly you are...

I remember the six day war and and Arafat days of terror. I sympathised with israel in those days.

Everything you said is true and I know the history. However, I think the Arabs have (discount Muslim Persians/Iran of course) have pretty...

I kind of like this

Posted on Sat, 24 Feb 2018

A lot of truth in this, but I think it would have a greater impact if it was written as a conversation, however it is very valid.

Certainly made me remember some of the "middle class" conversations I've heard around a dinner table (can't...

Brilliant poem Pops

Posted on Fri, 27 Oct 2017

Says it all  ..... well most of it. I think they really believed in what they were doing. My Grandfather lied about his age and signed up at 17. He was lucky he came home pretty much in one piece.

Kind of reminds me of a game our family played at Christmas we called it, "Consequences."
