"If you saw how we tormented each other every day, you'd want no part of it. It is a privelge being a man, but only after all the fighting is done; and even then, I envy you."

"What can you tell me?" I asked.
He merely smiled and in a gravelly tone he said;
"Nothing you don't already know."

Mary, The Butcher of Salisbury

Mary was a drunk,
and down on her luck,
But never was Mary a bore.
With a mouth like a gun,
and boy could it run,
She had every man on the floor.

Though her words they did slur,
It would never deter,
Her love for the drink and a tale.
Be it story or rhyme,
A sonnet or line,
She'd go at it hammer and nail.

And it's fair to be said,
That in truth she'd be dead,
Were it not for her gift of the gab.
For her life it was shite,
but the booze made it right,
and her words, they could pick up the tab.

You see Mary she lived with a cunt of a man,
An asshole that no-one could stand.
A bitter old prick,
As crass as was thick,
And who spoke with the back of his hand.

And Mary she wore all the bruises and marks,
On her face, her arms and her neck.
But the look in her eyes,
When she drank or reprised,
If you'd seen it, you'd never forget.

I can't quite describe it,
except only to say,
that no man was ever the same.
The moment they came to take her away,
With noone but Mary to blame.

You see her husband was found,
all bludgeoned and bound,
Floating in a bag in the sea.
And with a pint in her hand,
And too drunk to stand,
Old Mary was ready to plea.

"No contest, your honour,
for every drink,
and every word i have said.
But as for that prick,
I've no shame or guilt,
In how he ended up dead."

And so she drank her last pint,
With the hangman in sight,
And the rest of us down by the stairs.
And she told us a fable,
The best she was able,
Considering her state of affairs.

And though history would remember,
Her violence and temper,
For us it was hard to forget.
The way she could drink,
and thoughts she did think,
the most remarkable woman I've met.

Silly Rhymes


A boy stares at his reflection,
And sees an old man looking back.
"Where did the time go?" he wonders.
And "How did we ever lose track?"
"Is this the same person,
That amounts to wondrous things?"
"How long did we spend dreaming?"
"Is this reflection really as it seems?"
"Who are you old man?"
"I’ve seen you in times before."
"Is this, the face that greets me,
The mask I always wore?"
The old man drops his stare,
And moves towards the door.
The boy he thought he was,
He can recognize no more.

One Foot in the Grave:

"Why wait?" I said. "Why hesitate? "What good is one day from another?"
You just laughed, and slapped my back;
"That's a good one," you said. "That's a real good one, my brother."
And so we drank to all our worries,
And we drank to all the blues.
And the sun it rose in a miserable light,
As we drank to all of the truths.
The truths we had forgotten,
And those we'd rather forget.
To the ones which proclaimed us a villains,
And to those we owed a great debt.
And so we drank to the end of times,
To love and its inevitable end.
And we stumbled off home in the wee hours of dawn,
Just a prick and his miserable friend.

There's a cat on the windowsill
with a rat in its stomach
that had eaten the cheese
that my lover left behind
the day she went away

₢2017  C. Sean McGee


There goes
that girl over there,
Who’s not really here
as she is over there
unbound and unknowing
unwilling to care
mute to your calling
and blind to your stare
see her you will
and by that you will swear
that the girl over here is the girl over there

Green Thumbs?:

Was it something i learned as a boy
A passage the devil had said;
"A rose it will bloom in November and June, but only if you cut off its head."

₢2018   C. Sean McGee


Take me from where I am.
And guide me closer to you.
 Give me the scars that tear out your heart.
 So I can be closer to you.
 Kiss me again and feed me your pain.
 Then haunt me when I am alone.
 Nestled in mind, I hold you inside.
And make your sorrow my own.
As death closes in, I burn deep within.
Taste your breath and caress your face.
Before I should die, please take me aside.
For one last eternal embrace.

Through the charred wreckage of one man’s philosophy, an adventure into conscious delusion and dark dystopian fantasy begins as the survivors of The Nest find themselves on three paths where each will endeavor to rein their conscious minds to grasp the philosophy of existence and abate the shackles of conscious Famine as they march onwards towards New Utopia.

On one path, Marcos, having woken naked and amnesic at the scorn of ancient women whose immortality derives from the wearing of young girl’s faces like decorative dresses; is chased through a dense wilderness for the face that he wears whilst drifting in and out of conscious Famine, giving a glimpse into The City that was, one of obligation and Infant Industries.

On the second path, in The Kingdom of the Hound, Ruff the dog is awoken to conscious debate, rationalizing and philosophizing with an ostentatious small Chihuahua called The Bitch Queen over the nature of unconditional love as he fights to save the lives of his human friends from being gamed by savage hounds and monolithic boars. 

While on a third path, The Woman will unravel, through conscious delusion, the true extent of her repressions and her loveless abandon as a young girl; Safrine, through childish rhyme, is challenged by a creepy old man into a game of coloured cubes to save her two companions from the effect of The Famine.
