I (sometimes) call myself Mr. Pondersome. I'm a rather wordy, weirdy person. I say hullo a lot. I write a lot more. While you're here, why not give some of it a read?

"A List of Vital Things" (a.k.a. one of my silly poems)


Noticing how sparse my blog still looks, I've decided to display a poem in order to fill the void. After all, what better way to give an example of my writing style than a concise yet unconventional rhyming poem?

The poem is called "A List of Vital Things" and was written literally hours ago. For a while now I've been considering lists: instruction lists, goal lists and wish lists in particular. I suppose this first came out of a bedtime imagination splurge (you'll come to learn more about these weird creative sensations I have during the midnight hour, hopefully with a far punchier name) which I managed to keep in my sleepy mind to be properly organised later. Anyway, without further ado, here it is. Enjoy!!!


1. Grab a pen.

2. Mark a line.

3. Make it fine.

4. Emboss it.

5. Cross it.

6. Escape the box.

7. Break the locks.

8. Run off the path.

9. Free the wrath.

10. Keep the pace.

11. Feed the race.

12. Crease the brow.

13. End it now.

14. Do it again.

Thanks for reading,
Mr. Pondersome
