A few of my unfavourite words

posted in: Other stuff | 0

I thought it might help ease me through this dark winter if I exorcised some of the words that I despise.  In no particular order:

Awesome Over used and over here.
Heart But only when referring to my own ticky-pumping thing.  I can say British Heart Foundation or  Heart of the Matter without wincing.
Cuddle Oh, that word is just too awful.  Please, make it go away.
Tummy Like fingernails scraped down a black board.
Like I, like, kinda, so hate the way this word can be fitted, like, about six times in a sentence these days.
Movie It’s a film for fuck’s sake.  Or a fillum if you’re from the north east.
Comfy I confess to being uncomfortable about this one.
Nil But only when preceded by the word Wrexham.  A bore draw at best.
Panini It’s a singed and squashed ham butty you ponce.
Crimbo Unless taken to extremes as in Crimbo Dex for Christmas Decorations.
Baulk I always baulk at this one.  Then wretch.

That’ll do for starters…

The strangers of Pen y Bryn

Who are those people who stand and stare?
I see them, always from behind.
Never quite catch up to them.
When I get there, they’re gone.

Picknicking Penrhos Pigeons

We few pigeons of Penrhos are
waiting for picnickers to come from afar.
Cheesy riches, pork pies, sandwiches.
We like to poo on your car

Juliet Tango

A Tango…
Music & Lyrics : Tom Evans
(Allegro)GBRJT_nobg

Juliet Tango, the plane
She has two wings to her name
And if you fly her too slow
she’ll let you know.

Juliet Tango she flies
and you can see with your eyes
that when she takes to the skies
She’ll blow your mind.

(Allargando)

Flying, with grace and style
She’ll take you miles
   and miles away.

(Allegro)

Juliet Tango is fab
she has two seats in her cab
but room for one in her heart
his name is Mart (in).

And now an alternate verse provided by me here…

Juliet Tango the plane
she had an intact tailplane
but if you fly her too low (slow, and in a bloody crosswind)
to the scrapyard she will go.

Elvis cake

Forget all those ridiculous stories
Every last one is a fake…
Elvis doesn’t work in a chip shop.
He lives inside a Cherry Madeira Cake

Love between trees

An oak and a cherry
their arms entwined
embrace and kiss
until the end of timeLove twixt a cherry and an oak

Found this rather distracted pair on the steep hill behind my house. (Meifod, Powys)

Leftover Tree
Cuprum Surplusii
prefers shady position, out of wind and grows best in copper-rich soils
