No. 2044

(NB: I’m from God’s County, Yorkshire, where the geese fly backwards; where men are men and women are also men. Well, not all of course, or they wouldn’t be called women. The old dialect as all but gone, since the invention of Eastenders and Only Fools and Horses, so I’ll not confuse you by writing in proper Yorkshire. The following piece will, however, lean towards the accent. If you need help see the Tetley tea-men, the old Hovis ad’, or the beautiful Brian Glover, may he rest in piece. You may remember him in American Werewolf in Londonium. He was the baldy in the pub that told them to stay off the moor. They went on the moor anyway, the damned fools! The next minute they’re in a Londonium hospital, bloody hundreds of miles away! 

Don’t get me started on that!

Anyhow say the following in a Yorkshire accent. Short description over. Also I AM going to stay in a good Yorkshire castle tonight and there may not be WIFI, so see y’all tomoz. Be safe.)

A Night In A Castle. By CpSingleton © 2016

Wir going off to stay in 

An old Yorkshire castle,

Where’t ghost knights wander 

Giving’t posh folk hassle.

They won’t bother me, tho,

As I’m a white rose lad.

Just like mi father an’

‘Is dear mum and dad.

They’ll tip their ‘ats as

They go on their way.

Saying summat abowt being

Yorkshire ’til their dying day.

I’ll politely not point out

That that day ‘as passed.

Because I don’t want t’upset ’em

And they’re goin’t fast.

Wir going off to stay in

An old Yorkshire castle.

Where’t ghosts give southerners 

But never’t northerner hassle.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
