The Dead End or Not!!

The Dead End or Not!!

I have left it now for those to see,
Unopened upon the desk,
Just says ‘Read After Me
Nothing too fancy, or grotesque,

Direct and to the point,
Slightly romantic in its ideal,
This and that and whom to appoint,
After l am gone and it will reveal,

Who is to receive the very little,
I have at my disposal,
Upon my dying and choking spittle,
Within is set the proposal,
That my TV, PC and DVD’s,
Are to be made good use of,
Given to those who are most happy,
Watching films of action, horror and love,
And comedies galore ever so slightly batty,

Now to the purpose of my visit,
But wait, my mobile is vibrating,
Yes?’ Answer l ‘Yes, this is me’ I admit,
Where’s the what? Oh that thing
Can this wait, l am rather busy this moment
What am l doing?’ Asks the caller,
Sarcastically l reply ‘Attending a rather fun event!’
What , oh yes alright if you insist!
Fine, in the house next to the desk!
With the caller away, l must tend now to my end,
When the damn phone rings again! Pest!!
‘Yes, what? Oh , ahh, yes, no, just something l penned!
Now the caller is extremely volatile upon opening,
My Note, entitled The Dead End,
Silence whilst they are focusing,
Well shout did they, l must concede,
Selfish am l apparently!
With less than three weeks away from Christmas,
If l am gone, who will tend the damn horses!
So alas, my end is on a temporary hold,
Not to perform task until l am told!

Guy or Bloke, Your Choice

This is a tale not for the light hearted, nor is it tongue in cheek, but actually based on fact! I had penned a suicide note, and l had every intention of finally finishing my life once and for all! I was out in a field, when the phone rang and my employer wanted to know where the book of “Equine Dressage” was, when she discovered the envelope. opened it, read it and gave me a hell of a bawling out! 

The moral of this story for me was this … the pessimist will say….

………. “It doesn’t pay to always have your mobile phone with you!!”

Whilst the optimist will say “It Does!!”

  1. Seriously? See here, Mr. A Guy Called Bloke, if you end your life now or later, the soul or whatever is there that is inside you will just be recycled back to this realm. Really, no point running away. Let us just face the stubborn bull and grab it by its horn. Goodluck to you and keep faith.

    1. Don’t worry, this poem is concerning the year 2011, a tough year for me , but a good one in so far as Awakening – keep well, keep safe and thanks for the comment and well wishes.

      1. 2015 was a trying time for me emotionally…2016 to 2017 is a trying time both emotionally and financially. But you know what? Somehow, through all the difficult times I see more order and I feel more peace. And I found out that if I just let life be, it will just sort out on its own. Good wishes to you too.

    1. Yes, l know – well you know the score Dawn – life at times has a way of getting all too much – back then, l had my dogs and l had to remind myself that it would not have been fair on them – l had a lot of demons to live with – l too am gladder than many people might think by reading some of this older stuff – that l wasn’t successful 🙂

      1. Yes unfortunately I do now, ya looking back some times we wounder where are minds we’re and are thankful we got throw it.

        BY FOR NOW

  2. Oh Rory, so glad you had your furry buddies to take care of and your mobile phone. The world is a much brighter place with you in it! The universe works in mysterious ways, thankfully

  3. Glad to know you’re feeling better. I understand people who fall apart a lot more than I understand people who keep it all together. 🙂🍃

    1. Hey JoAnn – this was from years ago, and they were very dark days indeed – those who have walked the darkened tunnels themselves probably can relate quite well – sadly 🙂
