Coffee and Work

I know so much about useless things
since writing articles lately.
D’ya need to know ‘bout siphon rings
And how they affect things greatly?

Tracking lights – wanna install them?
Watch the wire – is it blue or brown –
and take care with the junction stem
when the innards dangle down.

Got other crap that’s taking up space
but I’m not too bothered now,
money’s banked, I’ll get off my face
drinking Kahlua in a Brown Cow.

it’s like coffee – well almost, nearly –
my trusted brew when I work
so it can hide in a cup without severely
making me look like a berk.




Perilous Socks

Do you want me to buy you, girly-girl socks?
Cos if i'm not careful, I'll start to buy frocks.
Not that it matters or is of alarm,
cos guys in dresses won’t do any harm.

You might think it weird to see me so dressed,
but this is what I do to prevent getting stressed.
Its never the garb, the dress or the skirt,
the brassiere, the panties or even the shirt,
looking so shabby, without form or sheen,
its the silk stockings underneath,
that get laddered on me,

I'm not sayin I'm hairy,
cos i shave down to the stubble,
but if I dont scrape, It'll lead to more trouble,
cos after a while, hairs’ll grow thick out of my stockings,
and shaving my "socks"!                                                      Now that WOULD be shocking!!



JESUS ON THE JUKEBOX

You’ve seen us on the TV, all you doubters and deceivers,
just send ten dollars UPS we’ll make you all believers

An invitation to the dance – a chance to pause and pray
you’ll never need a partner with Jesus as DJ

I’ll bless your doggy for a dollar, guarantee salvation,
just send his photo with your cash ‘cause Jesus loves Alsatians

There’s Rattlesnakes ‘R’ Us in Oklahoma – Brother Walter;
or Sofa Sam and all his dudes – “My surf board is my altar”

The Blessed Band of Banjo Players, south of Athabasca
with hymns that make you want to tap your feet until they blister

Oh ye of little faith, it’s now or never, come to Memphis;
suspicious minds will find relief within the Church of Elvis

Or seek the Sisterhood of Virgins run by Brother Simon;
a prayer and fifty dollars guarantees a brand new hymen

Hallelujah, Praise the Lord, we’ll cure all known diseases:
around the altar, back again, let’s run a lap for Jesus
