Intensely devious he
follows your cues
fakes a conscience

Phoney games for May
Get lucky
Play the scenes right

A plot with one ending

The Wit and Swagger Is Often a Blind

used to hide scars
a distraction
No harm done
Maybe folk who know
can see through it
but if they do know
then they're welcome
to see through it

Summer Display

These flowers are nearly dead and will be dug up soon
The council have a compost heap over in the car park
where they keep several trucks and a petrol lawnmower

The bed will be left bare for few months
and then replanted
ready for early spring
