Tattoo

I’d call him a big man
Swarthy and dark
And he sat in the seat in front of me
And wrote trouble in the air
And passengers avoided his eye

He spoke on the phone
He’d been to Brighton
To talk to the police
About the sneak thief
Who had stolen his briefcase

He would recognise him
He had a star tattoo
On his neck

I pulled up my collar
And sank down in my seat
And concentrated on the Metro
And finishing the difficult Su Doku

You've been busy. I only have to turn my back for five minuets and you have added more poems. great stuff!

Well, when I discovered you could programme the blog to publish things in the future a whole new world of blogging opened up to me. I can have new poems popping up every few days.

Actually, Tattoo isn't necessarily meant to be funny.

I htought I knew all the blogging tricks but you have found one I didnt know about I must admit. I will have to look into it.

CJ is the expert. If you look in edit mode you can put the date that you want it to appear. It took a while to get it.

Ah so you're nothing of the short

Sorry Roger I can see it has a serious side it's just the picture of you with your collar pulled up doing the difficult Su Doku it sort of made me think of old black and white films, gosh that's twice I've been in trouble this week, or was the last time last week?

I haven't been around here for a while, so you will have to excuse me commenting on old posts. This one is so Alfred Hitchcock! I love it.
