r.i.p Bowie

ashes to ashes 
dust to stardust
David Bowie

he was all of our heroes
for decades not days
an artist, musician, actor,
a fascination in so many ways

he was a space oddity,
changing perceptions 
with his flamboyance,
gender and artistic performance

he embraced modern love,
fashion was a passion,
certainly no rebel rebel with a cause,
never driven by fame or applause.

a jean genie-us,
let's dance in his honour,
a musical Lazarus,
his songs live on in all of us.

Our 2016 Predictions

Rain will march across the country
from West to East
Bringing heavy down pours
at the very least

Romance will cloud the air
it's a leap year ladies
so propose
if you dare

Will put spring in your step
but caution
it may still snow
there's time yet

Shower, showers
and more showers
the waterlogged meadows
will bear no flowers

The Saints will come
marching in
to FA cup glory
with a Wembley win

Murray will create
a triumphant scene
on the tennis courts
of SW19

Zut Alors
It's the Euros once more
When we hope England
will do better than before

Festivals will be at'tent'ed
by the nation's youth
sales of wellies
will go through the roof

An Indian Summer
we forecast
it's time for the Headway Holiday
at last

You may vote
to quite the EU
depending on
your point of view

Fireworks will
light up this month
giving us all
some much needed umph!

Snow will bring
the country to a halt
and the councils
will run out of salt
