My Mate’s Brilliant

My mate’s brilliant,
He’s really, really smart.
He knows about everything,
From politics to art.

He’s more informed than experts
on any given topic.
The only one who is awake,
While all around are myopic.

He’s got insider info on everything,
Economies, disease, and wars.
An enlightened view of the world,
Though he rarely goes outdoors.

My mate’s brain holds more stuff
Than any encyclopaedia.
And he’s picked up the lot,
Just from being on social media.

From the unrefined poetry collection.

Welcome to my Canvas

Some of the items on this site won’t be to everyone’s liking, I get that. Basically this is my place, my wee studio to mess around in – experimenting with words and thoughts. I’ll be chuffed if you enjoy it, but if you don’t, c’est la vie. As a friend used to tell me “it would be a boring life if we all thought the same.”
