                               O Amergin swirl:
                               Tír na nÓg: all
                knowing power: otherworldly force:
Segias: grind hazel nuts to knowledge: swill       
pour in the cauldron straight sound: verse Noaks: switch
    wit: light up the cast of love as night falls -
  Albard, Dawn and John – they who all
              comedy tossers yearning to score
          bulls-eye every arrow throw straight for. Light
of craic, twinkle; glitter in the well: find
what joke will laugh Blue Peter real, arrive
                 weave art
                     and cut this daft dream
          in a cloth of one liner: stitch the breeze
quip; nail John’s breath on paper to breathe
consciously at titter, jape or guffaw
gushing with free flow in the debacle.

Froth an episode, brim over and fall
the way wind blows when a turtle dove
cooing flies from the mind of a bard,
shifts shape to a circus clown tamer and bawls

"Hey you
     funny farm gob slops
                     light-heart bores
              free druid-pawns and playthings of love: wish
           only for permanent triples on boards
        your sticks hit giggling bulls and thud in
      double top all day long to tickle love
from the stream of gags flowing between you".

Come lah
bull minstrel clown, mimic speech through
scrumping fruit beyond the comedic eye
where flow master of ceremonies - Noaks

fellow and one time action man show

"When it was Blue Peter,
not like it is now
with kids
who don’t know what they're doing".

Circus slop swishing spray tame sea
motion smooth a stir of whirling liquid
through splatter massed splodges of telly:

tilt the lingo; flutter dovely music
flap, ruffle, spread your wings and limbs
crawl, soar free and jangle from his dome

              "...with real papier mache; not like it
is now, the microwave stuff you scramble to life through

  Whack out licks
    that lived then
      and live now:

     "...I was jumping out of a plane one week
    sticking empty bog rolls together the next
  dashing round the studio after elephant waste
and mucking in. Star of the whole hoo ha..."

before kids replaced you
and juiced up the models

"..you can’t put a price on..."

from buckaroo centres where tiddley-winks
still hold, reckoning their toggable taggle
and balancing laughter you and your colleagues
had when at giggle

peck this needle from the shiny gutter
commune with our entourage of party fawns
living le joi de vie.

become a pigeon
hint of a scuffle at heaven’s gate.
