Birthdays

50 was a crossroads

50 was a crossroads

By jfarrell

 

I did have a party on my 50th birthday…

And it was decided on your votes and contributions;

And, I think, it was great!!

 

My first birthday party, ever

Two folks did turn up..

Definitely better than no-one.

 

And we spent the night jamming on guitar;

With everybody begging me to stop singing, hehe

But, it’s my party and I’ll sing if I want to.

 

The real guitarist, I hadn’t seen him in a couple years;

And ‘Dodge’; well he couldn’t dodge the end of this friendship…

“Jim, you’re always so negative.”

 

A crossroads;

A natural ending, without bitterness;

My last friends and I go our separate ways.

 

“The times we had were great, we gotta keep in touch….”

We, all three, nodded, big smiles…

But.. the smile never quite reached our eyes….

 

I maybe losing the remnants of the only last good thing I got left;

Maybe, depression, pain, clouds my judgement….

….but

 

Maybe…

To move on to something better…

I gotta let something, stale, go….

moving on, maybe.....

Wolf Unleashed

By jfarrell

 

(loved them old horror films, lon chaney jr, peter cushing..)

 

My 50th birthday was my Lon Chaney Jr. Moment….

Collapsed, out of site,

Behind the kitchen table;

Emerge;

Everytime a bit hairier;

Everytime my teeth, especially my canines (vampire teeth);

A bit longer,

A bit sharper.

 

With each rise above the kitchen table…

More hair, longer teeth, and my clothes more ripped, more shredded…

…it happened…

Thank you

Lon Chaney Jr.

 

I became the Mr Hyde I’ve always waited to become….

And I’m so happy….

It’s the not the evil child raping monster I was expecting….

I CAN play guitar… DAMN…. I can play T’rex, Chuck Berry…

I can jam along with Clapton, Van Morrison, Iron Maiden…

 

I’m far from good… YET… but, damn, I CAN play

And I WILL get better

Like Lon Chaney Jr…

I gonna get more hairy….

I gonna let them teeth grow down to my knees….

Damn, am I gonna get hairy….

Hair alll the way down to my feet….

…..

AHHHHROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That’s my werewolf howl :-)

 

Dr Who got a new regeneration on Xmas Day;

I got mine first ;-)

You’re nothing but a bad smell

You’re nothing but a bad smell

By jfarrell

 

2 hours before my 50th birthday…

 

“C’mon 49, hurry up and finish, you’re nothing but a bad smell

I didn’t wanna be here…

But here I am…

And I am starting up a brand new day

 

That was Sting and Coldplay sang start as you mean to go on…

So…

C’mon, hurry up, go, bad smell…

I need something fresher

 

Something new…

I hope I can use my anger, bitterness and downright HATE

To turn this sorry excuse for a life around

And kill that bad smell.

 

For life to begin at 50….

Something has to DIE in 2 hours, right…?

And, I hope it’s that bad smell…

That has been my life up til now.

Happy Birthday Warcraft

Happy Birthday Warcraft

By jfarrell

 

(to the greatest video game in the world - in my opinion)

 

Happy 13th Birthday to World of Warcraft,

And a big shout out for my guild, Nascent;

13 years I have lived this game

And it’s been far better than my real life (big truth).

 

From my first warlock killing boars in the Valley of Trials,

And holding the siege at Crossroads

As the Alliance attacked in their thousands;

Trying to wipe us from extinction.

 

To my resto-druid, Slugbrain, healing valiantly,

As my guild took down Kiljadeen on mythic;

Them raid dungeons can be tough;

Especially as my brain turns off when the tactics are explained.

 

But my heart lies in Warsong Gulch;

As does a leg, my left ear;

And I’m sure I lost an eye there, too;

PVP (player versus player for noobs :-) ) is my life!

 

Whether twirling my shiny swords as I start battle;

Or holding my staff aloft, with all the power of Gandalf;

PVP is the closest I can get to legal murder :-)

Thank you World of Warcraft; happy 13th birthday.

 

(and thanks Blizzard, the company behind WoW)
