I think I'm all there
but you know what thought did eh!
Could be somewhere else.

Could be somewhere else,
maybe swallowed up by a
singularity.

Much better than girls,
these here women - a man knows
where he is with them.

But going to Hell
is more fun than walking on
eggshells to Heaven

Eggshells to Heaven?
Is this a yolk of a line?
Do whites go to hell?

There's no substitute
for a nice big piece of steak -
You can keep your quorn.

“You can keep your quorn.”
“What on earth is that?” she frowned
“I want homemade food.”

With cement, of course,
cracks in grounded soles will heal
and no waves break them.

Good haiku? All day’s
effort won’t produce good ones.

A moment's insight,
shadows cast by full moon's light
lighten the dark side.

How the millstone turns,
how my job grinds day and night,
I need a big change.
