The Poetry Bus

Here is my poem for The Poetry Bus.

Windy Morning

In the morning
Before I polish my shoes
I have my breakfast
And turn on the news

Muesli and melon
Prune juice and bran
I like to break wind
As much as I can

Hot buttered toast
Castor oil and crumpet
Helps me loosen the valves
And blow my own trumpet

Then Auntie pours milk
And I sip my tea
And we’re just as happy
As happy can be


  1. It's going to be hard to improve on perfection.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog - call again please.
    Nifty little poem you've got there.

  3. Superb. I needed that. Beautifully done - and I cracked up. What more can one ask?

  4. A poet after me own heart - always ready to bow to the scatologically inevitable!
    (Now . . . what rhymes with "heart"?)

  5. Doctor FTSE just made me google scatological and I wish I hadn't... give's a new meaning to the song "I'm a scat man"

    Anyway - lots of joy pervading this one Captain. Excellent job

  6. Yes, Cap'n, I'm a morning farter too. A sweet and charming ode that deserves a wider audience.

  7. Nice work! A real antidote to pretentious poems everywhere (was going to say 'breath of fresh air' but on reflection...)

  8. LOL! Nicely done. Reminded me of 'Filth' by Irvine Welsh.

  9. Thanks for the information... I really love your blog posts... specially those on Local Tamil News
