TUESDAY 23rd JUNE 2020


  The professor was a well known entomologist he had lectured all over the world in most of the prestigious universities. In the jungles of Borneo, he met a local guide called Mojo and together they trekked through some impenetrable jungle searching for a new legendary example of insect life. A life of an unknown species.

‘Listen Mojo, we’re looking for a golden mosquito, that is a pure yellow golden colour   But we have to be wary we don’t get bitten as Madness will surely follow.’

 Later Mojo raced back from the densest part of the jungle with a dead insect clinging to his bare arm

‘Yai! Yai! I am now the one God and hate everybody, Mosquitoes will rule the world one day. Let’s all die together!’

The Professor was bemused as he pulled a pair of handcuffs out of his knapsack, secured Mojo and carefully removed the  dead yellow insect.

The wanderers would gallivant, 

The juggler and ringmaster

The clowns leading the elephant

When the big top was erected. 

The smell of diesel oil, mingled with animal excrement.

Drifted over the hedge of the vicarage. 

A tiger  went to gallivant and stalked the vicar. 

Without sentiment.
