1929 -

God made night
But man made darkness.

If I die in war you remember me,
If I live in peace you don't.


Baby Rabbit with eyes full of puss
Is the work of scientific us.

Christmas 1978

A little girl called Sille Javotte said
"Look at all the lovely presents I've got!"
While a little girl in Biafra said
"Oh what a lovely slice of bread".

The Future

The young boy stood lookig up the road
To the future.
As the road went on into the distance,
The sides appeared to converge together.
"That is due to perspective" said
The wise old man,
"When you get there, the road is as wide as it is here".
So, the young boy set off along the road, but
As he went further along, the sides of the roads converged
Together, until he could go no further.
The boy returned to ask the old man what to do,
But the old man was dead.
