- How To Make A Mountain Out Of A Molehill: : Humour, Inspiration

First you must pick your molehill, now here's a tip
The smaller the better, tinier than the tiniest microchip
From this speck you can conjure mountainous masses
Of soaring peaks dropping into bottomless crevasses

Slippery slopes, treacherous overhangs, avalanches
Whipped up as quickly as fluffy blancmanges
Glaciers forwardly creeping destroying as they go
Even if they do it at a speed immeasurably slow

The mountain forged from the molehill, easily soldered
Can the molehill from the mountain so easily be moulded?
I don't think you can hack it down with an axe
The best way I can think of is to just relax

(Sydney, Australia - 2005)

- In The Middle Of Nowhere: : Humour

I live in the middle of nowhere, where nowhere's all around
And in the middle of nowhere, there are many nowhere sounds
Colourful birds in the middle of nowhere screech and squawk and trill
A choir of frogs sing in chorus in the centre of nowheresville

Sometimes I go to somewhere, where somewhere's all around
And in the middle of somewhere there are many somewhere sounds
Cars in the middle of somewhere screech their tyres and blare their horns
Jackhammers hammer, sirens wail singing the cacophonous somewhere song

Then I love to get back to nowhere, where nowhere's all around
Because in the middle of nowhere, there's something all around
Peace and harmony and stillness are everywhere I see
Right in the middle of nowhere is where I like to be

(Sydney, Australia - 2010)

- Our Budgies: : Humour

Our pretty budgies love to chatter
Oh how they love a little natter
It's no good asking for some peace
They keep on talking, never cease

Maybe they're saying their name in Latin
Melopsittacus undulates, they' are chanting
Or possibly how hot's the weather
And wonderfully cooling, to fluff their feathers

They may be talking of the crow outside
And laughing at his big backside
Or simply rejoicing at being alive
To wake up cheery at half past five

(Sydney, Australia - 2005)

- She's A Beagle: : Humour

Brandy is a beagle
I've said a lot already
When you eat a tasty morsel
She can hold your gaze quite steady

Her eyes plead quite insistently
She only wants a little taste
Even if it's just a fallen crumb
That else would have gone to waste

Once you give her her heart's desire
Do you think that will stop her yearn
If you responded in the affirmative
Then you still have much to learn

She can smell a muffin
From miles and miles away
Leave it unguarded for a second
She thinks to herself 'Ole'

And when you return from your very brief jaunt
She will look up at you most innocently
Her dark brown eyes will stare at you
Not a single crumb in the vicinity

If she walks by a great big dog
She doesn't say a single word
Until she's safely passed it by
Then she barks like you have never heard

Teaching her how to use a dog flap
Does not always go as planned
You know that food will do the trick
But remember, Brandy is not bland

You place her gently outside the door
Then as you bend down to place the food
Her head bursts through, ears all askew
Oddly enough she's in a hungry mood

Her excitement when going on a walk
Cannot be surpassed
She may be greedy and disobedient
But she is a lovely little lass

(Sydney, Australia - 2003)
