"- That nice auld wummin wha stops yir mammy frae hitting ye.-"

My gwanny.

She has wrinkles
crinkles folds n flaps,
eccentricities widening gaps.
has lapses, collapses,
memory prolapses,
grows mould n is old
n sometimes-- she slaps us

my gwanny..

my grandma Olive
has just written
a book with an epic twist
of eye-popping proportions

'OLIVER TURNS OUT AN OLIVE'

BY OLIVE OYL

-this book goes beyond...

the bounds of pluto
in a tincan of green
sucked through a pipe
for a man i am mean

so voila, here's olive
-i'm a stoner at core.
but show me a cocktail
and i'm begging for more.

so glad to see you and have summit wurf readin' exclamation mark, smiley face.

it's bad enough i've bottom marks
and now the bloody cane.
you'll not be lumping loads of oats
into my bowl again.

great use of language. reads like a bite of pecan pie.

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance

Now that's a stunner! Excellent piece, an absolute joy to read. A series, focusing on other family members, would be a fun journey.
