Why Must Life be so Hard

Why must life... (sigh)
             ...be so hard

I've got so much to do
the staff are "oh-so-slow"
It's such a job to organise them
I've got to choose the red for dinner - the Malbec or the Bordeaux?

Why must life... (sigh)
             ...be so hard

The children take up so much time
nanny's not much use!
there's always so much that they need
where are they now - has nanny let them loose?

Why must life... (sigh)
             ...be so hard

Freddy needs new glasses
Timmy's under the "doc"
Lottie needs t'muck out the horses
and Cynthia at a birthday bash - tore her lovely party frock 

Why must life... (sigh)
             ...be so hard
There's nothing out for supper
I don't know what to do!
Cook is on her Friday off
I could go down and have a bash - but I simply don't have a clue!

Oh why must life be so hard!


The early morning mist wraps itself 'round trees
following the contours 
poking it's nose into rabbit holes!
Keeping its head down
on the run - impossible to catch
unsure of its intentions!
on its way somewhere
but never sure where!
Flooding valleys
painting fields white like frost
here then gone
...fleeing from the sun that will take it from us

Long Term Relationship

It's wonderful to share a long term relationship
to know that they are there for you 
to call upon
if needed
there to be relied upon
whether you're at work
or at home - where ever!
when needed
when life gets a little too much
when you just need a little lift
because we all have those times
don't we
first thing in the morning
just after lunch
that mid-afternoon slump...

and that thought of a long night ahead...

...to know that coffee is always there!

With The Gun

Sometimes a solid and stable solution is very hard to find
leaving two possible options to keep both parties aligned 
leave the politics to the politicians and
the soldiers to kill
if the poilicians can't fix the problems then I might know who will
give a committed soldier enough training and the weapons to fight
and the method might not be pretty but the outcome just might
yet; can a manufactured peace be forced on those who simply don't care
whether you live or die but would like that your people weren't there 
this situation is far from over and has many years to to run
both sides better start talking, 
or they will finish it with a gun!
