On visiting a jazz cafe
Wollongong is lacking something
Do this at home – not while driving
Going hot and cold.
Will they work?
On the horrors of committees
It seems that we’re needin’
To stop these things breedin’
A coder’s lament.
A reflection on quantum entanglement.
It’s not about the hat
An email irritation
A condition much over-diagnosed.
I don’t think that dogs belong in the city. (Some may disagree.)
Some thoughts about a very fashionable pastime.
Confucius and Socrates had versions. This is mine.
A possible solution to the controversy
I am unreasonably irritated by people who say “foreshore” when the perfectly good term “shore” is more correct.
What oil man want
What “climate change” really means
Why I rhyme
A Brexit Ballad
Partridges and turtle-doves are endangered, gold rings cost $1,600 an ounce, milk maids and leaping lords haven’t been seen for years – it’s time for a sustainable Christmas list.
Just wondering …. a verse
A romantic verse (sort of)
Just a verse by a confused Aussie.
Some reflections on proverbs.
A verse for Christmas.
A suggestion for a new Australian national anthem (and a bonus new flag design)
Some thoughts about religions and science – in verse.
Some verse inspired by the parallels between the Roman and American attempts to control the Middle East. The Romans under Emperor Vespasian and his son, Titus ; the Americans under George H Bush and his son George W.
An attempt at a classical poetic form.
Of crazy cardinals, ratbag rabbis, mad mullahs and loony lamas.
