I'm an inconsistent artist, hugely distracted by life. I create in a variety of media including words, pictures, food and laundry. I do it because I can't seem to not. Sometimes it's fun.

Not going out. A poem for peace.

27 November 2015


Soldiers lined up

I used to campaign against war and in favour of peace. It seemed important and I felt useful.  I feel too tired and achy to protest now. Or is it that it doesn't seem to be worth the effort? I don't know. I really don't. So, I wrote this rough and ready poem to go with this picture .Then I posted them to this blog and thought, now what?   troops are on the loose sniffer dogs follow leads so their noses know where I live   they'll be along soon telling me...
