Words And Value, by Danny Kemp.

1908400a8b747d3e66958e93cc035e87

The value of a book should not simply be judged on the written words that you can see.

It should also be judged on the memories it leaves in your heart.

BLACKBIRD, by Danny Kemp.

47584bd2f6423c7721f96b88979eded9

Blackbird.

Two ways of life, encapsulated in a few lines.

The first two lines, a repressed life. The second two, the fantasy of freedom.


You have no master, no one to say; “you must do this, you must do that,

You must play this role today!”

Spread your wing and take to flight.

Go find your love hiding in the night.

Funny ‘Lines’ Mixed With Strange Enzymes, by Danny Kemp

383931c7be98b8affcb50136adfd3ea4

Me and Liam would go to the sea to throw pebbles and count the bounces you see.

Then we’d go home for a pot of jam, three slices bread and a little smoked ham.

Soon Liam got fat and could no longer travel, whilst I moved on to more problems to unravel.

Now I’m a chemist working with enzymes, while poor Liam sits at home writing silly rhymes.

Who’s the fool and who can claim credit, when both lives must face their final edit?

I offer an answer to which you may agree, so I’ll write it here for you all to see.

Lines can be bad but they can also be good, but best not to try too many before adulthood…Boom Boom.

Dress Code, by Danny Kemp.

ca59b23d1bd68f56f773c15ef748d596

Dress Code…..Taken from Anything But Hackneyed.

Men in grey, women in red. I wonder what lives they have led?

Grey is a colour between black and white.

It stands for nothing that stands for right!

It means indifference, incapable of choice.

Being silent, quiet of voice.

It’s a man’s colour, the colour they chose,

But there’s always something that they oppose.

Red is for danger, watch out I’m here!

Keep the way open. Keep it clear!

“I have an opinion and I’ll voice it if asked. 

Don’t mess with me boy, or I’ll kick your arse!”

I am a woman, I speak soft and low.

I’m not violent, don’t make me so!

Women in red, men in grey.

I wonder what they’re thinking, as they go on their way?

Together In Peace, by Danny Kemp.

6c3b3407687b49b2f771e8235de1ac8f

If we could dream whilst holding hands,

Then together we might just understand

The meaning to this life in all its ways.

If only we could live in peace for a few more days.

Dance And I’ll Smile, by Danny Kemp.

10294419_703821663017297_226374146277009223_n

For my granddaughter, fifty years my junior. I write this three days before my sixty-fifth birthday.

Dance your way through life. Then from afar I’ll watch, smiling and laughing at your triumphs and elation.

When you stumble but then rise again as if nothing has happened, I’ll wear a grin so huge that through the very darkest of days a ray of my hope will light the path before you.

Never lose sight of your dreams, nor let anyone rob you of them.

If you listen to unwise words and walk timidly through your life, then my tears should flood your heart whilst I drown in sorrow!
