I like the way

I like the way birds rise before us
To have quality time they can share,
The way trees go to ground in the winter
And turn their roots up in the air.

I like the way redundant leaves
Gather on corners to shoot the breeze,
How the moon can be a paper lantern,
A sacred host or a Camembert.

I like the way you tell me good night
And I tell you good night the same,
Then forget about cares of the daytime,
And sleep till the birds sing again.

Alexei Sayles' message: Stay in the fight!

"The only people who like Boris Johnson are those who don't know him" (Max Hastings, Johnson's former boss). "The only people who dislike Jeremy Corbyn are also those who don't know him" (Alexei Sayle).

Shower thoughts/Attack of the Tiddly-poms

Mismatching socks may be considered charming,
Mismatching shoes are a bit more alarming,
Even if it's only yourself you are harming
And your nonchalance is completely disarming.

Please take care and let's never go barmy,
For if you do, I'll have to join the army,
The Foreign Legion, unless they debar me
But I'll never forget who you are and who are me.

What if we don't know each other from Adam
And disperse in perplexity neither can fathom?
If that should befall, I still want to say madam,
There are fine days ahead, let's have at 'em.
