I’ll end as I began..

Yggdrasil

By Scott Bailey © 2015

There once was a grouchy old poet
Who desperately tried not to blow it
So he strived hard to be
Like the tall world tree
Wisdom above and below it

Tradition

By Scott Bailey © 2015

Tradition is the echo of oppression
The long shadow of old power
The dark night of the poor
A back drop for wealth’s fireworks
Yet its the poor who cling
Fast to slow-moving tradition
As the controllers far above
Play their fears like violin strings

Broken Shell

By Scott Bailey © 2015

eggshell

Broken shell
Evidence of new life or life cut short
A new hungry mouth
Or a hunters hunger sated
Either way
Life is given
Evidence found
In our humble garden

Deaths Sorrow

By Scott Bailey © 2015

Sir Terry Pratchett
His humour – well no one could match it
Now his pen is laid down
Death’s grin now a frown
