Triangulation Of Thought.
By Hee who is Tee

A wee whisky is no help at all, nor counting patterns on my bedroom wall
A walk in fresh air before going bed is no guarantee to clear my head
The thought keeps returning my brain keeps right on a-churning
It's no use watching the telly Nor lying flat out on my belly
Nor smoking a spliff that won't make any great diff
As the single thought turns over and then over
It's driving me mad, it's really quite sad
Bags under both eyes feeling sore
Books spread over the floor
Coffee cup lies spilt
Over the quilt
As I ask
WHO
AM
I.





(shame I had to edit out the first three or four lines ... they past in "Preview" but were too long in the post.)

Wait a minute ... I've got my eye on a burd.

Triangulation Of Thought. (directors cut laugh.gif )
By Hee who is Tee

With due thought and consideration I mull over again a thing that worries me now and then
It keeps me awake more times than enough: sleepless nights and all that kind of stuff
It wont let me go, repeatedly nags, gives me headaches as I reach for my fags

The provi man

Ma maw hates the Provi man who visits us each week
He takes money that she can’t afford; she says he’s a bloody freak
She got a ten quid cheque to buy clothes for me to wear when I went back to school
And pays four pound interest which makes her feel a blinking fool
But last night someone mugged him and took all of his cash
I don’t know who the bugger was, not me? I’m not so rash
No one likes the Provi men because of what they are
The modern day highwaymen that push you out too far
Ambiguous unscrupulous low-life’s that cause you hell
If you use the Provi cheques then you’re a fool as well
A Provi cheques like dynamite, it’ll blow your mind away
As soon as you discover the interest that you’ll pay
That’s why no one likes the Provi men ringing their doorbell
But I’ve got ninety quid in cash, where I got it I can’t tell

The triangle was annoyin'.
On the Preview I kept cuttin' an' changin' till it looked as good a triangle as I could get then posted it and went, "Oh dear, that was rather unfortunate."

I posted this quite recently somewhere else on the GGB site.

The Late Train spotter
I stood and waited in the rain
And hoped to see a passing train
Not really caring what class it be
A black five or a Jubilee
A diesel blowing its two tone horn
Or a Pannier Tank the worst for worn
Yes I stood and waited in the rain
But it seems my waiting was in vain
For the last train passed by long ago
But I stood there and did not know
Until a passer-by came up and said
No trains will come, this railway’s dead
The last one ran in sixty-eight
And even that was running late
So I thanked him and went on my way
And cursed I stood there yesterday.

I hate Santa

I don’t like Santa Clause, because he let me doon
When I asked him for a train set at his grotto in the toon
He promised me a Hornby wan complete with a track mat
But on Christmas day I found he’d left a toy car and a Cowboy hat
Now Santa’s not my buddy, no he is no friend of mine
He’s nothing but an idiot who’s a total waste of time
I didn’t want a car or hat you twat, I asked you for a train
And I wanted to be Casey Jones, but I didn’t want to be John Wayne
So Santa I won’t visit you or write to you again
Just you keep away from me as you’re driving me insane
And don’t come down my chimney with your guns and Corgi cars
You can take all of your presents and shove them up your ****

Twas Grimble in the Black Forest
A wee cabin all covered in snow
A family sleeping serenly at rest
By a warming fireside all aglow

A shuffling sound from the rooftop
A dull thump and a murmered Ach, piss!
A softly muffled wee clip-clop
As Rudolph says Give it a miss

But Santa knows it's his duty
To bring pressies to all; not just some
We'll shovel some snow down, my beauty
To save me from bürning mein büm tongue.gif

Jist too much
I met a burd fae Lapland
Her name was Carol Snow
Her faither looked like Santa
And his boozers nose did glow
I took her hame tae ma hoose
Too meet my ma and da
An’ ah don’t think they quite liked her
Coz she didnae wear a bra
She wore a tiny tee shirt
That was only a size eight
But she weighed twenty stone
Yes, she was a little over weight
The frontage that she had
Drooped down below her waist
And when we sat doon tae dinner
We all kind of lost our taste
As her pair of sagging mountains
Lay drooping doon her knees
I knew I had to dump her
Coz she’d be too hard to please
So when I walked her to the bus stop
I told her a great big lie
I was emigrating tomorrow
And I kissed her goodbye

The West Highland Run

Out of Queen Street Station and straight up Cowlairs bank
Pulled by a type 2 diesel and pushed by an N.B. Tank
Exiting the tunnel and still it’s a hard climb
But the 8-15 to fort William will make it there on time
At the top of the incline we leave the Tank behind
And drift through Cowlairs station with no doubt in my mind
That we’ll be in Fort William and still have time to spare
For I won’t waste a moment until the train gets there
But then at Possilpark junction my heart is filled with dread
For I just can’t believe it, but the signals gone to red
Five minutes we sit waiting, for a freight to clear the line
Then the signal goes to green but we’re way behind our time
Quickly on to Craigendoran with an extra burst of speed
Hoping there’s no signal checks that I will have to heed
When we get to Tyndrum station the train for Glasgow’s here
Waiting for the token that shows the single line is clear
Up through Bridge of Orchy then onto Rannoch Moor
But arriving late or early I really am not sure
And when at last we get there I’m wallowing in pride
Four minutes before schedule, that was really quite a ride.

When I gave up my Job in Airlie (Near Kirrriemuir) I returned to Glasgow around October 1979 and my girlfriend and I planned our engagement that took place in July 1981. She and her parents soon moved out to Glasgow and not long after that our relationship started to come apart. This was down to me not being able to get a job (Although I was employed for about 6 months in 1982 with the parks Dept.) and her parents were against me. Needless to say we started to drift apart and in 1983 we were finished. In 1985 I visited her sister who lived beside her and asked her if she could ask her sister (my ex) if she would agree to meet me. Her sister told me that she was making plans to go and live in London (she was always a bit of a dreamer). An arrangement was made to meet in the local pub the coming Saturday. Even though I knew we would not get back together I still hoped that we would. I tried to tell her that it was down to her parents and that if she had come up to stay with me when I was working in Airlie I could have got her job in Kirriemuir and we could have got our own house. I wanted her to know how sorry I was and that she had been less than kind towards me in our last few months together. A couple of days later I wrote this and sent it to her. I received it back with letter a couple of days after I sent it saying that it meant nothing to her (she lied) and saying that she never even liked me anymore.

I was wrong and so were you
But I admit it, can you too?
Or do you just put all the blame on me?
And tell yourself you were so right
That I just couldn’t see the light
And that’s the way that things would always be

So now you’re off to London town
To find the life you never found
In all the time that you were here with me
But before you pack you’re bags and go
Here’s something I’d like you to know
You were just as wrong but failed to see

Now what am I supposed to do
For I won’t sit here and cry for you
And tell myself it’s me that got it wrong
When you were just as much to blame
But played it all like some strange game
And made the rules up as you went along
