The Bluebird Café, 25th July, 2015.

An Arch-angel sat down,
With two chilli dogs last September,
In the middle of the last third of July,
One day just last night,
And there was misery in the air,
And there was misery on the wires,

But all the people could do was smile and cheer,
The Devils music danced hand in hand,
With tales of how a woman loved a man,
And how she’d left him,
Citing an unholy love for cutlery,
And for having one too many guitars,

The ‘Bird most definitely wasn’t blue,
She was smiling in her element,
With the members of this exclusive band,
That gathered there for the music,
Music that bred good times,
And gratitude aplenty,

Thank you for a great night, one and all:

About Jim Laing

The Buddha said there were four kinds of people. Those who run from dark to dark, those who run from light to dark, those who run from dark to light and those who run from light to light. From a life going from dark to dark to having a few years running from dark to light, with scuffed hands and knees from sometimes falling, I may be getting the hang of it now. How it began is not now how it is, I need a quiet space, After the noise of the day, So I take sanctuary in the creativity, And my soul feeds, On sometimes dark, Sometimes light fantasy, And I dare like many to work, But stay up off my knees, To dream, perchance to suffer, But always still to dream. Here are things mostly lyrical and poetic, with nonsense sometimes, reviews and personal musings. The coffees hot and always black. The words not necessarily so.
