Free Ebook Synopsis

A selection of poetry and verse on a myriad subjects that may have crossed my mind over a number of years.

A poem from the Book:

THE PEAK HOUR CRAWL

the continuous stream of shiny ‘duco-ed’ vehicles
exuding poisonous gases
flowed like molten metal over a meandering bed
of man-made macadam
people encapsulated in these moving coffins
the only contact with the outside world
was the gibberish patter from unseen persons
being received through extendable chrome feelers.

their course pre-destined their fate sealed as they continue
with their slow moving progress
heading towards a common goal an identity
all wanting to be individuals
but following one another mindlessly like sheep
their aloneness isolation
swallowed up by the sheer numbers of cars...of people
some at ease some frustrated.

some comforted by the sharing the intimacy
of the same experience
rarely do they exchange words looks feelings or gestures
with their fellow commuters
except by accident then only in anger
never giving or receiving
anything good or lasting with their fellow voyagers
this is the peak hour crawl
