Beware of the Tongue Tied


Basil, a bandy bulldog,
blatantly but blithely
barked, biting bystanders
bawdily brawling.
Brian, the bum bit back
bashing Basil boldly,
belligerently beggaring
the bad bulldog.

“Bummer!” Bumbled Basil!
banging a bashed brown bowl of
biscuits. Baiting Brian –
Basil’s bitten bone bounced
beautifully, beating Brian’s
bonce black and blue.
“Bollocks,” bandied Brian.

Basil and Brian, brawled,
beaten up and bruised, bleeding badly.
Bodily bile bothered Brian a bit,
but Basil brow beat, bashed, bullied,
barked, bit and battered
Brian’s beggar butt.

Before long, bemused and burnt
out, both bawling, badly bandaged
badasses became best buddies.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.
