No. 3062

Don’t Be Fooled By The Silence. By CpSingleton © 2016
Outside my skull I am inert. 

Silent. Vaguely responsive.

I will talk if I really need to and I will drink when my mouth is dry.

A furious dragon could stomp into

My room, all fire and snarl, and 

I can guarantee you that I may 

Raise my right eyebrow or 

Frown at its temerity.

It will get no stronger a reaction

Than that.
Don’t for a second think I’m dead within my skin. 

Oh, Lordy-Lord no!
Inside the pendulum is swinging to

The rhythm of a monstrous sea!
Clark Gable is at the bar and waving me over for another finger of the firewater.
Cavemen are sweeping Glastonbury whilst singing 

The Lumberjack Song.
Tarzan is tap dancing in cream cheese,
Wally -or Waldo- has been found.
The two Italian plumbers are racing bananas around a huge trifle bowl with my name on it.
And all is well.  


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.

  1. You’ve short changed your followers by not showing your whole face. Dude, we don’t read for the entertainment, we read you so you’ll show us some skin. I can’t believe I typed that with a straight face. Your mind is a thing of wonder. Truly.
