Take Them Fuckin’ Sunglasses Off

Take them fuckin sunglasses off
The sun’s outside you tool
Take them fuckin sunglasses off
You’re confusing cunt with cool
Take them fuckin sunglasses off
Surely you can’t see
Take them fuckin sunglasses off
You’re not Lennie from Peters & Lee
Take them fuckin sunglasses off
It’s a look we all deplore
Take them fuckin sunglasses off
Lose those delusions of grandeur
Take them fuckin sunglasses off
Them shades are a shameful blunder
Take them fuckin sunglasses off
You’re not Roy Orbison or Stevie Wonder
Take them fuckin sunglasses off
Your room is dimly lit
Take them fuckin sunglasses off
It’s dark in there you tit

Adipose An’ Affection

what’s he supposed to say?
to “does me arse look fat in these?”
should he always safely say “no way!”
whilst the weight buckles the knees
when she’s obviously gettin’ bigger
does he tell her she’s lookin’ grand
should he tell her she’s an hourglass figure
that could do wiv a little less sand
what’s she supposed to say?
when his belly blocks the view of his cock
never one to want to cause dismay
she’ll iron his shirt on a wok
what does it really matter?
should anyone really care?
if either or both grow fatter
as long as a love lives there

Can You Spare 20p For A Cup Of Tea

Can you spare 20p for a cup of tea?
your change wont change what they think of me
can you tear that nescient poster down
that assumes I beg for rocks and brown
before you blame the fruit on the ground
take a look at the tree we fell from

the poor didn’t create inequality
and the poor didn’t create my poverty
you could easily be sat here like me
So can you spare 20p for a cup of tea?

Poetry is it? Ah’ll give ye poetry

Some nice words about my show ‘Woodchip Anaglypta & Nicotined Artex Ceiling’ at Salford Arts Theatre, Saturday 28th Feb 2015.

From Catalunya To Chorlton

This blog started out as a guide to Barcelona and I used to really enjoy doing it. I’ve been living in Manchester for over a year and in truth it’s taken me that length of time to start considering the city as my “home”

My last entry was about a day out at FC United and the reaction it got kind of made me want to start scribbling again. It’s fair to say there are thousands of things I miss about Barcelona but I can’t help but feel that Manchester offers a relatively soft landing from Catalunya. On face of it that may appear an odd statement but the people here are fantastic, some of the pubs are among the best in the country and the town is teeming with culture an’ that.

Getting myself back on my feet, establishing some genuine friendships has me in a position where I am…
