Video Blog Thursday: The Girl Who Collected Goats

Hello!

Not done one of these in ages, and I still haven't been back on a regular schedule on here, not least because I'm in a play at the moment.

But here we go.  I wrote this poem on the way to a spoken word gig at The Goat Inn in St Albans.  I'm not sure if it might have been subconscious, but it was totally unintentional that I wrote a poem about goats on the way to a pub called The Goat.  As much as I'd like to take credit for that.

As usual, it's very silly...

Very Short Mondays: The Coin-Operated Man

"Quick!" said the Coin-Operated Man as he burst through the door. "I bring terrible news!"

"What is it?" said the Professor.

"Hold on a moment," said the Coin-Operated Man. "Let me catch my breath."

"Bring his inhaler!" shouted the Professor to one of his assistants.

And the Coin-Operated Man wheezed and wheezed until they brought his inhaler.

"I'm okay now, I think," he said. "I bring terrible news. I've come to warn you of-"

Click.

"What? Come to warn us of what?" said the Professor. "Does anybody have any change?"

A sea of blank faces looked back at him. Some turned their empty pockets inside out.

"Professor," said the assistant who brought the inhaler. "I've always wondered. Why did you create the perfect Coin-Operated Man, and then give him asthma?"

"I'm not sure," said the Professor. "To make him more human, I guess. Although in hindsight it probably wasn't the best idea."

"Ah well," said the assistant. "It was probably nothing. You know how melodramatic he can be."

"Yeah," chuckled the Professor.

And so, we never saw Them coming.

Very Short Mondays: Scarecrow

Ingredients: two broom handles, lots of strong, a couple of nails, some old rags and a football.

And a childlike enthusiasm for adventure.

This would never make a convincing replica, but Alishia didn't care.  She was going exploring today.  And that was all that mattered.
