That Person in my Head

There’s someone walking around

inside my head

padding around in his slippers


what to do with himself:

should he write a poem?

read another chapter of ‘The Freedom Circus’ ?

write a witty comment

on Beth’s ‘Wild Sounds’?


Another episode of ‘Father Brown’?

it wouldn’t be so bad if he didn’t flush

the toilet so often

or go to the fridge.

Look, it’s ten o’clock, I say to him,

could you please

settle down

so I can get some sleep?

    Say, I had not heard of this book “The Freedom Circus.” I can’t resist books that recount the stories of those who escaped the horrors of Nazi Germany. I be sure to get this one onto my Amazon Wish List; and also the one referred to in the blurb.


  2. Great article, I really enjoyed your blog very much and I would like to invite you to follow my blog to thank you so much and I wish you much success 👌🤗merry Christmas


  3. Try offering him a nightcap, maybe a record track as lullaby, I’m sure you can think of something to soothe him and when you do, please share. There’s a lady doing cartwheels over here.
