I am a poor old tractor
Abandoned near a wood
But I was once a work horse
I’d tell you if I could.
I ploughed the fields and scattered
The good seed on the land,
Oiled and greased and ready
To help my old farm hand.
We harrowed the old meadow,
We rolled the g...

Remember all the moaning when it was hot and dry?
When all the birds were singing, not a cloud up in the sky?
Remember how we suffered with sweaty boobs and brows
And the farmers had a meltdown with no grass left for their cows?
Remember how we wilted un...

Mary was a battery hen
She laid her eggs each day at ten.
Ten thousand others in her shed,
Always warm and always fed.
She didn’t know that there was more
Not far away outside the door.
She ate her food and had a drink
Because she wasn’t bred to think.

This is my latest book and one that I am especially proud of. It will soon be available on Amazon. I am hoping it will help anyone who is travelling the very lonely pathway which is dementia.

I remember that day so far back in time
When we won the world cup, it seemed so sublime
My Uncles and Dad all crammed round a screen
I remember it now, I can picture the scene
They had all gathered round and were drinking warm beer
They were full of good...
I'm confused by the sounds, I think it's a bell.
I'm reaching for help as I wander through hell.
I can see, I can see! I think I'm still me!
That man in the jacket has set my mind free!
He gave me a ball, I remembered the game.
I passed it right back, (I...

I know I shouldn’t moan
I should be happy with my lot,
But what are you supposed to do
When it’s so blooming hot?
I didn’t like the rain
I got stuck in all that snow.
But now the sun is shining
I’ve got sunburn on my ankles
Where I didn't...

So many greats, so many games
So many famous household names.
So many hopes, so many tears.
So many losses drowned with beers.
The three lions proudly on each shirt.
The penalties, the days of hurt.
The time we thought we might just win
Having the dream is...

We are so very lucky, life here is quite a breeze.
We have someone to sort out our hips and dodgy knees.
If we are feeling poorly we can go off to the Doc's
who's there throughout life's journey until we're in our box.
From rashes when we're little, to b...

So many hate the farmers,
they don't like tractors on the roads,
especially those with trailers
and a slow and heavy load.
They moan about the cattle
they complain they hear them moo,
and phone up to say the bale stack
is blocking up their view.
But when the...
