In The Words Of Mario Puzzo

Many young men started down a false path to their true destiny… time & fortune set them aright. They learned that a man with a briefcase can steal more money than a man with a gun & that there is no greater advantage in life than having ones enemies overestimate their faults, unless it is…

The Painting Of Life

Life is what happens when we’re making plans. It’s as uncertain as the weather or the heart of a conflicted man. They say that life is what we make it, it’s the canvas for our art but I would swear that last I checked, it was a journey at the start… Life you are a…

Can Solskjaer Succeed Where Mourinho Failed?

I have to admit that it has been hard to talk about Manchester United as a fan over the last few years. Since the end of Sir Alex Fergusons glorious reign and the start of David Moyes ill fated one, United have lurched from a dizzy stumble to a drunken stupor. In fact, as former…

Heart To Heart

I don’t know your height, I don’t know your sign, I don’t know the things that make you cry… I don’t know much. I spend all this time with you on my mind, how I wish you were mine, I wish you… were mine. Whether I’m dreaming, or whether I’m bored. Whether you’re with me……

Blessings And Wonder

You have pretty eyes. I wonder if you know? I wonder if you know that your beautiful smile lights up the room, everywhere you go? You have a wonderful laugh. I wonder if you’ve heard? I wonder if you’ve heard, that I consider you the most beautiful woman in the entire world? You have a…

A Space Opera

I’m here floating in the debris, surrounded by pieces of me. The battle is done… but in the end I never won. It was a battle in the sun. Blows rained from all sides like a Gatling gun. The hull collapsed… I think I died in the blast. It was the mutiny… that caused the…

A Letter To Winnie & Nelson Mandela

Dear Nelson I never got to honour you on this platform. You passed before I became a member. I feel the need to do so now though, because Mama Winnie has fallen Tata. She is coming to see you now. Though it has been a few years since you passed, your legacy lives on in…
