We Will Remember Them (Whether You Like It or Not!)

I begin this post in the aftermath of seeing a short albeit very provocative video on Facebook about how Remembrance Day, the Poppy Appeal, and the Royal British Legion are racist and should be banned/disbanded. I was going to post something else today, but this definitely takes precedence. First of all, I’ll go into a … Continue reading We Will Remember Them (Whether You Like It or Not!)

Give Up (Poem)

If the shoe simply doesn’t fit… Try on another pair. If they don’t care about you… Tell me, why should you care? If you’re swimming against the current… Maybe you can’t resist. If it’s dragging you downstream… Perhaps you should desist. If the odds are strong against… It’s not always wise to fight. If you … Continue reading Give Up (Poem)

The Beacon (Poem)

This one tiny island surely cannot be dug upon by another, You so vainly assume. The island asked not for your … Continue reading Buried Treasure (Poem)

Scorned (Poem) (and an introduction to a new genre on my blog)

Today, 16th March 2017, is when I finally sell my soul to the dark side and debut my least favoured style of literature on Paul.E.Bailey's World. It's something I've been considering for a while to test myself if nothing else. I'm not a big fan of poetry. I won't lie when I say I ignore a … Continue reading Scorned (Poem) (and an introduction to a new genre on my blog)

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 7 (Blogging)

My structured style of posting has gone totally skew-whiff. I’ve done this on purpose in part as the rigmarole of coming up with themes for certain things was becoming somewhat tedious. I’ve decided to relax on that front and basically post what I want and when I feel like it. I’d like to apologise to … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 7 (Blogging)
