No. 3147

Lucky Star. By CpSingleton © 2016

I was born under a lucky star.

Unfortunately for me it was also

A selfish bastard and

Shone none of its good fortune 

Down upon my head.

That’s the way it goes

I hear them all suppose.

It did gift me a sense of humour and

The ability to get away with murder, but

Will that leave a mark?

Other on than on the victim’s neck 

As they die laughing and 

Strangle themselves to ease the pain.

Well, that’s not murder, you say.

It is if I do it on purpose…

Pause for dramatic silence…

Before I tell you that 

I’m only kidding around.

I couldn’t hurt a fly.

I give them names like

Freddie and adopt them 

As friends,


Trying to teach them decorum.

They never learn though, 

The buzzy little feckers, but

I keep on trying.

Just an average ape in 

A manufactured suit:

Watching; waiting;


Hair grey, eyes blue.

Something borrowed.

Nothing knew. 

One day,

When my lucky star has fallen,

I’ll stride right up to it,

With the intent to give it

That “told you so” look,


Picking it up,

Dusting it off and

Consoling it.

Life’s too short for bitterness,

After all is said and done,

Don’t you think,

Dear, Mr Pink?


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. OK, I have a complaint to register. Just a minor thing, mind you. I could never stomach the name Freddie or Freddy or Fred or anything of its ilk. I don’t know why. NOne of them ever did anything to me, at least not that I remember. Just can’t stand them. So, you know, just my opinion, and all, but don’t saddle any with that moniker or its likes. Only a suggestion, though. I’ll go back to minding my own Fredding business now.
