Best Poem of Stephen Loomes

Arrivederci Roma

Arrivederci Roma
(sung with Perry Como’s Croon)

I leave a dirty Roma
Gypsys at the station with offers of aid
Hand out, waiting to be paid
Ah yes, I leave a dirty Roma
Touts and beggars to evade
Nice old men on the take
Selling cameos so clearly fake
Joining thousands at the sites
Of a great civilisation
Long past its heights
At its lost grandeur we gaze
Through the roman summer haze
And despite the ubiquity
Of the crumbling antiquity
Around the falling monuments to the past
Lives on, an eternal truth
Which is the beauty of ...

Read the full of Arrivederci Roma

The Fine Scaffold Moves

Fingers stroking
Flesh tumesces with blood
The mechanism of love
Stroking, moving into
Erotic awkward positions
Of romantic junction
Sliding peristaltic
In and out, forever.
