This is a silly little rhyme I wrote some time ago. I've had a play about with this and updated it slightly. It was written at a time when there were few curtains in my

Always When Iím Naked

or what writers really do on an evening



Always when Iím naked, usually in bed,

Poetic thoughtsí tend to pop into my head.

Urgent to get them down, I reach for my pad and pen

but to my woe things have gone astray

so itís a case of Ďhere we go again.í


And so the hunt beginsÖ


A skinny wraith, dancing by windows with panic-stricken grace

Wearing a look of literary discovery upon a worried face.

A skeleton with a hose attached, not a sight to behold,

especially for those of faint heart or nervously disposed.

All the time trying to remember what it is, thatís in my head

whilst at the same time filling the neighbours full of dread.



When I do find paper and pen

And rush back up stairs again

I jump on the bed and get comfy in a literate repose

then forget what it was, I was supposed to compose.

Seems such a waste, all that haste,

Still! Itís a good excuse to play with my hose.

Ha! Paul, The really marvelous thing about being slightly whacked, spending most of my time with the "inner child" is that I'm not alone when it comes to this response to nakedness: WE GIGGLE! We can't help it.

The poetry is wildly imaginative. It's a romp, tinged with naughtiness. Of course, you realize, that we who read you have vivid imaginations, so that activity with the hose is in all our heads now. hehe... Who among us can't relate to the pen and paper fiasco? ... but, truth to tell, in the end, (oops hehe) it'll be that final bit that sent you to our personal libraries, purely to study the great writing, you understand... Ahem! (grin) Sigh... ah, the voyeur in us all. katy xox.
