' ' ' ' ' A CONCEPTION OF TANKAS


RAPE & BONDAGE

Female friends chatting
about where they had conceived.

'MMM....immaculate!
in a field of yellow rape! '

'Mmmm...bondage session! '

*******

FLASHER FRIGHT

Flasher...flashes her.
She laughs - sprays him in the face
with a can of mace.

Whips out her Blackberry &
dials 999. Flasher...gone!

******

A LOAD OF BALLS

Helium balloons
escape her tiny hand &
leap to the skies

looking now like Nelson's balls
floating free from his statue.

******

JESUS SAVES!

'JESUS SAVES! ' tramp says
everyday like a mantra
as she passes by.

Dives in front of squealing car
saves her child. Smiles...'Jesus saves! '

HEALTH WARNING TO GNATS FLYING OVER MT. FUJI

Gnat whines furiously
as it flies over Fuji
outlined against sky.
But that is as far as it goes
squashed now on travel poster.
