welcome to the promised land

ok its sunday
i like to post a poem on sunday
heres a new one
its about the state of the world to today

welcome to the promised land
by sean gould

welcome to the promised land
where arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand
children in the bushes smoking weed
and one in five people face poverty and need
but the people in power just dont care
sitting with whiskey and cigars in their chair

the credit crunch is hitting us all
the world is heading for a financial fall
we take for granted everything that we buy
but now the prices are way too high
with this monitry presure its hard just to chill
when worrying how to pay every bill

thugs on the street make you scared to go out
with the fear of being attacked by a lout
anything valuble they will happily grab it
just to feed that nagging drug habbit
a night on the tiles isnt always a laugh
as it often ends in alcohol fuelled wrath

in every country its worse than before
as it seems the world is ready for war
ready to fight over some oil
killing each other and to the winner the spoil
and the great mister bush has to have his say
using the world as puppets just to do things his way

no jobs for the people who are willing to work hard
do anything to get their name on a clocking on card
many desperate to be on the payroll
as they have had enough of life on the dole
but some people it suits them just fine
spending their giros on ciggies and wine

struggling to survive the day to survive the day to day grind
looking for a better life that you never seem to find
some of us know we will never have a lot
and we must really accept what we have got
so life will never turn out the way that we planned
welcome to the promised land

as read at poetry wednesbury............never kissed a girl

tonight was another great poetry wednesbury meeting
great as always
heres a poem i read

never kissed a girl
by sean gould

dweebs and geeks
meet up in drobes
talking of lazer beems
and sonic probes

faces of spots
and breath of garlic
the only thing they ever groped
is a remote control dalek

no strangers to big words
they quote them all with passion
the only words they dont know
are street cred and fashion

sadly these guys
wouldnt know what to do with an erection
the only thing that exites them
is their comic book collection

most of these poor nerds
have never had a lover
some of them are forty five
and still live with their mother

some of them cant get a lady
because of their nerdy looks
the only thing they take to bed
are harry potter books

they are too obsessed with aliens
from another world
that is why these dorks
have never kissed a girl

i suppose im just like them
but in one way im unique
i guess im the worlds only
sexually aware geek

is this britains most obnoxious man?

this is minor celebrity iain lee
you may reconise him
then again you may not
but this man is the most self absorbed vile specimens my poor ears have ever had the misfortune to listen to
he presents a number of podcasts and radio shows
but he shouldnt be allowed on air
his attitude towards people is disgusting
he cuts callers off and calls them idiots
when they have done nothing wrong
theres lots of vile things this cretin says to people who listen to his show and put food on his table
people call him up to speak to him on is show and he just rubbishes them
like one time a young lady goes live on webcam to speak with him
he as the nerves to call this girl a "minger"
then he had an asian man on the fone
this a*sehole turn round and say that he probably smells as washing is against his religion
and im not the only one who thinks his actions are vulger
a few weeks back a lady called his show to confront him of hios attitude
he just made her look small
anyone who dosent agree with him he just cuts the phone line off on them and calls them an idiot
theres on one idiot here mr lee
and thats YOU!!!

killer quotes

i wanted to start this as regular segment.
but people say the funniest things
so i wanna post some quotes that make me chuckle

the first one was from big brother the other night

(best said in a geordie accent)

"12.15pm and the housemates are playing football with a ball made out of sanitary towels"

quite resourcefull

but the best one was one i heard one the way to the match on saturday

picture the scene

i just stepped off the tram
was walking behind a gang of lads who looked like they had been on the beer all day
the police was at the exit as always
one was a young girl
no much older than 20
one of those lads turned round and said

"if yo wor a copper od shag ya"

a poem by request

so recently ive been doing a lot of poems for occasions
my little ten year old cousin was down here from newcastle
she read them and asked me to do one for her
so here it is

perris poem
by sean gould

little cousin perri
has come down to stay
i wouldnt say shes shy
infact she has a lot to say

when i walk in
she calls me lots of names
shes usually on the computer
playing sallys salon and other girlie games

she pulls lots of faces
that are very silly
she plays in the garden
with the dogs bonnie and billy

she helps auntie shona tidy up
and she works very well
then she will make cakes and biscuits
in the kitchen with michelle

then of a night time
she watches wrestling with uncle mark
then shes goes to sleep in her pink room
now that it is dark

shes been here for two whole weeks
and soon she will be gone
and i will think that ive gone deaf
when i walk into my moms

so heres to you perri
with your brother jack
this poem was wriiten by your cousin
the one you call fudge pack

doing my bit for THE pUBLIC

to be honest i have been a sceptic of the public building
however a few weeks ago i had the chance to see it for myself
i went to see a friend and fellow poet geoff stevens read his poetry there
to be honest i wasnt too impressed with the place
the didnt really organise geoffs gig very well
no mic
people speaking on phones
and kids running around
so all in all the place didnt impress me
but who knows it may grow on me
everyone seems to be writing poems about the public
so i decided to have a go
however the only thing i could focus on is the fact that it was once a bus station

the old bus station
by sean gould

now west brom has a public gallery
the black countrys answer to the tate
i remember when it was a bus station
where i used to catch the 78

every week as a child
we would catch the bus there
whilst helping mom carry her shopping
out of the queens square

she would give me some money
to go and buy some cakes
whilst she went in preedies
for a packet of fakes

as you walk into the station
you would be hit by a smell
it is an odour
i remember very well

smells like that
you can never forget
a combination
of urine and sweat

inside the station
theres a variety of folk
a mixture of the black and the white
the rich and the broke

two old ladies gossip
until there hearts content
whilst a cider soaked man
sings a drunken lament

a waiting man
unwraps a toffee
and a resting bus driver
drinks a well earned coffee

a little old lady
struggles with her bags
whilst young teenagers
experiment with fags

of course the toilets
were the worst in west brom
but now like the station
there flattened and gone

now the public building
proudly stands there
the home of the artist
and the culturally aware

theres no staggering drunks
with bottles of booze
no smoking teenagers
and no dirty smelly loos

so why dont you come in
and take a look around
a little piece of culture
in west bromwich town

an optical illusion...

this came to my attention sometime ago
this is a leaflet advertising travel insurance provided by a well known supermarket chain
i dont think they use these anymore
but take a close look and see if you can spot a familiar face
i dont know if hes meant to be there

(heres a clue look closley at the sombreo)

the reason of that hangover was my sisters engagement party
what a night!!
of course i wrote a poem for ocassion
and i read it out in front of the whole party
my biggest crowd yet

anyway heres the poem

engagement of my little sis
by sean gould

now im getting older
i really feel my age
im feeling bloody ancient
now my baby sister has got engaged

i remember when she has a friend called jamie
who no one else could see
now shes made a new friend
by the name of ste

it only seems five minutes
since she was a little girl
but now she has grown
into a beautiful woman of the world

now shes bending poor stes ear
and giving me a rest
but ste you are lucky man
and i wish you both the best

sometimes me and michelle dont get on
i can be mouthy and loud
but i love my little sister
she makes me very proud

so ste be nice to her
because with her you are stuck
so happy engagement to both of you
i wish you the best of luck

queen of the road

today im a very proud brother
my sister passed her driving test
i wrote a poem

the queen of the road
by sean gould

you have been trying hard to pass your test
i thought you might explode
and you have done it
and its time to hit the road

i know its been frustrating
these things always are
now you look a picture
sitting in your car

i remember when you rode round the block
on your little purple bike
but now you have a green car
and can go anywhere you like

you can go shopping
and buy yourself a frock
or you could drive to blackpool
but dont forget my rock

you will be driving daily
to your job at kfc
if theres any chicken left
bring some home for me

you must save some money
as petrol costs a load
so lets raise a glass
to michelle queen of the road

to test the brain in his head
