In honour of the month of February, another 7 verses of the 5-7-5. 
[With my profuse apologies to the Vicar for my shameful profanity...] 


"First month doesn't count!" 
Fervently February? 
Hit the ground running. 

Pray to you-know-who 
Divine gut inspiration. 
"Fuck 'em all," says He. 

The Shits? They can stay
Where all the Shits do reside: 
Up their own arses. 

What about Stalkers?
Just let 'em stalk where they will. 
But not at your place.

What of the Siren? 
Ignore its Silent Treatment. 
Better off the hook [!] 

You're the Boss of You. 
And your Circle of Control? 
Wide, bright, beautiful. 

Lots of Light to shine 
So start the New Year proper. 
Good people need you.

  1. …made me laugh :)) seems gonna be great month – February. I honestly hate February: dark, cold, feels like forever-winter-never-spring šŸ˜¬šŸ˜¬ but, resolution now is to survive to the next month :)))

    1. I’m sorry Feb’s not a great month for you — it’s a good resolution, though. šŸ™‚
      Sometimes survival’s all we can hope for… before thriving in the spring, maybe? Perhaps that’s when 2017 can fully blossom. šŸ™‚

      1. Yep. 22th of February is the START Day of The GOOD TIME šŸ™‚ Hopefully can run outside then too, now is too cold šŸ˜¦ā›„ļøā›„ļøšŸŒŖ am not a huge fun of the running, but it’s easiest we can do to keep in shape/feel good/stay healthy. U can go and swim (pool only now) – it’s a good exercise too.

      2. Haha 22nd it is. šŸ™‚
        Yes I’m going to run a bit, as I used to be good at it… haha well there’s a river in my local park, but swimming in that may be somewhat… over-adventurous. šŸ˜‰

      3. Swedish ppl going to the pools (a lot here in the city) to swim in the winter time. Usually they r buying 1 month ticket or half-year ticket. Very popular. Adventure* is the motto of 2017 šŸ˜„šŸ˜‰šŸ˜‰

      1. Well if you say so… but I still think it’s probably just a matter of confidence? I’ve written the most terrible poetry in my time, that it’s made people cry at how awful it is. šŸ˜‰ But it’s still valid, and still mine. šŸ™‚
