Always on

Always on

“I can’t switch off…”

ALWAYS ON

I can’t switch off
I’m burning out
I want to stand,
and scream and shout
I want to cry
pull out my hair
rip off my face
tear up my chair
jump out the window
crash into a car
slam into to the road
seep into the tar
dissolve inside the earth
in the stillness and the cold
experience the silence
as darkness takes its hold.

Maracas On Crackers

Maracas on Crackers

“…to bated breath, his baton drawn”

MARACAS ON CRACKERS

Searching for a new sound, the composer sat confused
Music was his food of love, but he couldn’t hear the muse

“A diet of music is called for!”, he thought it a bright idea,
To eat what once he would play, to taste what he needed to hear

So he ate…

Marinated guitar, baby-belles (tubular),
Triangle fritters, double bass pittas,
Haloumi harps, elbow of oboe,
Tambourine jus with violin roux,
Xylophone on the bone, flute en croute,
Trumpets on crumpets, maracas on crackers

He finished his meal with a Swiss glockenspiel,
Washed down with clarinet claret,
And baked drum sticks for percussion toothpicks,
Piano sorbet for cleansing the palette

He strode into the concert hall, to bated breath, his baton drawn,
Then let out one almighty roar, a truly original and gutsy score
A triumphant melodious malodorous,
As never composed before.

S E ODE TO PERFECTION

SEOde to Perfection

SEOde to Perfection

A lonely web crawler
meta tag who suggested
he find an url friend.

The spider returned to his web
and on a page rank with fear
changed his density.

Stuffing keywords
sculpting links
tweaking his title tag,
he began his search
full of optimization.

He came across a SERPant
resting in the sandbox.

Though clearly a no follow
he felt content in her company
and wondered if it was duplicated.

Would you like to share my domain
enquired the Spider?
Impressed by his sense of algorithm
the SERPant url agreed
to anchor herself to him.

The content spider and friendly url
lived ♯happilyeverafter.
