A Husband

I'm looking for a husband, you know the sort of chap
The kind of guy who copes with things and never has a flap
The one who fixes cars and bikes and often mows the lawn
Takes the kids on Sunday hikes while I with hammock yawn


I stand quite close but not too far
From pelvic porcelain mounted jar

Are You Lonely Too?

Remember how he scraped his knee and how I wiped it clean
I picked him up and hugged him so he wouldn’t make a scene
He was just so little then, an active little boy,
My! What a man he has become, me eldest son called Roy.

Hospital View

He was lonely and sad in his hospital bed
Accepting his future with ‘boding and dread

Beware The Trapdoor Spiders

There’s a kind of trapdoor spider
that lurks in special stores
Because he now has wider
targets for its claws

There is only a handful of excellent poets left on this site and you are at the very top. From the moment I read your first poem, months ago I knew that you had superb talent. I am a bit envious of that but more so of the life experience that you have and of your intestinal fortitude, the courage to say and do what is right. My kind of poet, and my kind of man. Best wishes Herbert

Amusing and scary knowing that this is life as we know it. No escape from reality! Well done Christopher. I look forward to reading more.

Chris has an uncanny way of telling a story. His work is crisp and his message is clear. I enjoy reading his poems very much. He has one fault. There are not enough poems posted.
