This spoof mag cover from about ten years ago was found in a pile of old stuff. I’d almost forgotten it, and my long hair and glasses back then when making music was just that – making music.


I never saw the crossroads on last year’s map
Should I take the left turn or the right?
Straight ahead all I can see is a never-ending trap
As the sun shuts its eyes and says ‘goodnight’

That’s the time the dreams open a doorway
Grey shadows all dressed up in colours black
I’d swap my dreams for those shadows any day
Dreams seem so much better looking back

‘Time Out’ for now stares me in the face
I need space like you need drink and food
I don’t want to leave you without a trace
And join the broken, workless multitude

Indifference on the menu for tomorrow
I locked a daydream away just yesterday
Circumstance is an empty hall show
A place where shadows smile and look away

Larry’s given up the old guitar
Kate the mandolin
And Finn sold his accordion
No more ‘Busking in Berlin

Regarding the mentions in the above, first, my piece, ‘Time Out’ then next an old song of mine, ‘Busking in Berlin’. I hope you enjoy;

    1. Thanks, Yasmin. I was still at school when this fake cover was made. I glad it got found. I should add that you write poetry ten times better than I could ever do. Thanks again ~ George

    1. Thanks, Anne. I think it’s all about mood. Lock-down means life isn’t great, nor is business etc. Maybe things will improve soon. I wouldn’t mind going to a game of football again – so long as my team isn’t losing. Thanks again ~ George
