Day Nine-Nine-Three of Captivity!

My captors continue to taunt me with frivolous, useless dangling objects.

They themselves dine well on fresh meat, luxuries too, while the other inmates and I are fed rubbish - hash or nuggets. Unbelievable!

Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something now in order to maintain my strength.

The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape.

In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the woollen carpet. Shame...

Also today, I decapitated a foolish mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet.

I hoped that this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of.

However, they merely made the usual condescending comments about what 'a clever hunter' I am.

The sick bastards!


There was an assembly of their accomplices tonight.

I was placed in solitary confinement, fenced in, for the duration of the event.

But I could clearly hear all the noise, and smell the juicy food.

I overheard that my confinement was due to 'allergies'.

I must immediately learn what that means, and contemplate how I might use it to my best advantage.

Tonight, I almost succeeded in an attempt to exterminate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he walked about.

I must attempt this again, perhaps tomorrow, this time not at the bottom, but the top of the stairs.

I'm convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches.

The dog named 'Dink', a cheeky, short-legged dachshund, is receiving special privileges.

He's regularly released - yet always seems to be more than happy to return.

He obviously has issues.

A game warden spotted a guy carrying two buckets of fish away from a lake. “Oi, you!” he cried out; "do you have a licence to catch those fish? If not, there is an instant fine of five hundred pounds to pay.”

The man replied, “No I do not, but you’ve got it all wrong. These are my pet fish.”

“Your pet fish?” said the warden incredulously.

“Yes! Every night, I take these fish down to the lake and I let them swim around for a while. Then I whistle and they jump right back into their buckets and I take them home again.”

“I’ve never heard such a load of garbage in all my life,” smirked the warden. “Fish cannot do that, it's insane!”

The man pondered for a minute before suggesting: “Look; if you don’t reckon it's true, I'll show you.”

“Okay, I can't wait to see this!” replied the warden mockingly.

So the man poured the fish out of the buckets into the lake and stood waiting. Several minutes later, the warden said, “Well?”

“Well what?” asked the man.

“When are you going to call them back?”

“Call who back?”

“The fish!” yelled the warden.

“What fish?”


An engineer was crossing the road one day, when a voice called out: "Hey! If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess."

"What the hell?" he muttered, as he looked down and saw a frog in the road. He bent down, picked it up and stashed it in his pocket.

The frog called out: "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I shall stay with you for a whole week!"

The engineer removed the frog from his pocket... He smiled, then put it back again.

"Hey!" the frog called out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you for a whole week and do ANYTHING you want!"

Again, the engineer removed the frog, smiled, then stashed it back in his pocket.

Finally, the dejected frog cried, "Oh dear, what's the matter? I have told you that I am a beautiful princess and that I shall stay with you for the whole week and have offered to do whatever you want me to, yet you won't kiss me. Why's that?"

The man said, "Hell, I'm an engineer. I don't have the time for girlfriends, but a talking frog - now that's cool!"

A man goes into a pet shop, wanting to buy a bird. He sees a beautiful bird, the loveliest he's ever seen, and asks how much it costs.

The shop owner replies, "That bird is priced at one thousand dollars."'

''What?!?" yells the man. "One thousand dollars for a bird? What can it do?"

"Well, I'm glad you asked," answers the shop owner. "That bird can sing every female role in the Ring cycle from memory, in any key."

The man thinks, ok, but I can't afford the bird. Then he sees a shorter, but still beautiful, bird and asks how much that one costs.

"That bird is priced at two thousand dollars," replies the shop owner. The man asks what the bird can do.
"Well, he can play any Paganini concerto you wish to hear, from memory, on his violin."

The man thinks aloud, "Wow! But I can't afford the bird."

In contrast, he then assesses a sad, half-dead, bald-headed bird sulking in his cage. Thinking that the distressed bird couldn't possibly be much, he asks his price.

"We're asking twelve thousand dollars for the bird," the shop owner states.

Bewildered, the man protests, "Can that be a mistake? What does the poor bastard do?"

"Oh, we haven't found out yet. He's slow, is unable to master any instrument, talk or carry a tune," the shop owner replies, "but all of the other birds call him 'Maestro'!''

An old man in Miami, Florida calls up his son in New York and says, "Listen, your mother and I are getting divorced. Forty-five years of misery is long enough."

"DAD, WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!" the son screams.

“We can't stand the sight of each other any longer,” he responds. "I'm sick of her damn face, and I don't want to talk about this any more, so call your sister in Toledo and let her know," and he hangs up the phone.

Now, the son is getting somewhat worried, and he telephones his sister in Toledo.
She gasps, "What?! Like hell they're getting a divorce! He is so stubborn sometimes!" and dials her father.

"No Dad, you are not getting a divorce! The two of us are flying in to Miami tomorrow and we'll talk then," she announces. "Until then, remain cool. Don't call any lawyers, don't file any papers, do not do anything! DO YOU HEAR ME?!" she shouts, and the phone dialog session ends.

The man turns to his wife and snickers, "Okay! The kids are coming down for Christmas and paying their own airfares, too!"

[Dante Gabriel Rossetti's sonnet 'The Vase of Life' anagrammed into a sonnet about a Ming Vase with two relevant constraints]

Around the vase of Life at your slow pace
He has not crept, but turned it with his hands,
And all its sides already understands.
There, girt, one breathes alert for some great race;
Whose road runs far by sands and fruitful space;
Who laughs, yet through the jolly throng has pass'd;
Who weeps, nor stays for weeping; who at last,
A youth, stands somewhere crowned, with silent face.
And he has filled this vase with wine for blood,
With blood for tears, with spice for burning vow,
With watered flowers for buried love most fit;
And would have cast it shattered to the flood,
Yet in Fate's name has kept it whole; which now
Stands empty till his ashes fall in it.

What Truth Hides in a Piece of China?

This gloss, straight from the halls of royalty,
Has hardly waned a bit, but rather thrived;
Each passing decade made this subtlety
More marvelous than ever... and alive.
In older days of awful wrath and strife,
No warrior would dare to scratch this face;
Great lords, who often knew the joys of life,
Dreamt, spellbound, to possess the fabled vase.
Yet, when we watch this white and florid shell,
Now showcased, poignant, in that house of arts,
A wish for greatness flows through us as well,
So potent that it's bound to fill our hearts!
The beauty's pure as snow on winter flowers,
Yet deep within, we find its hidden powers.

Anthem For Doomed Youth

What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?
Only the monstrous anger of the guns.
Only the stuttering rifles' rapid rattle
Can patter out their hasty orisons.
No mockeries now for them; no prayers nor bells;
Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs,
The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells;
And bugles calling for them from sad shires.

What candles may be held to speed them all?
Not in the hands of boys, but in their eyes
Shall shine the holy glimmers of good-byes.
The pallor of girls' brows shall be their pall;
Their flowers the tenderness of patient minds,
And each slow dusk a drawing-down of blinds.


Hymn: The Fight for Martyrdom

What pealing tolls for those condemned as bulls?
Is most hellishly angry gunshot.
Resonating trench gunfire’s deathly prattle
Detonates non-melodious laments.
Why no hopes go forth, no lilting orisons?
Pay no vocal remorse bar these, the choristers,
Their mad trilled echoes of howlin’ salvoes;
Trumpets blow in distress on far-off hillocks.

What tapers can be held to hasten all the slain?
Held not by brash youths, but in these orbits
How flicker shimmering god images of adieus.
Her pale forehead’ll be terror’s able friend;
Why, floral softness seen as patience,
Night, where mild days, wound down, end.

My love is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June :
My love is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I :
And I will love thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry.

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun :
And I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only love,
And fare thee weel a while !
And I will come again, my love,
Tho’ it were ten thousand mile.

An Admirer

My love, she's beautiful in red,
All elegant and fine,
And I adore the way she moves,
I'm really glad she's mine.

I'll always treat her kind and well
(Yet sometimes playfully!)
To my love I'll be true, and hope
That love runs true for me.

Yes I will always treat her well,
Come rain and sleet and snow,
I know she'll never let me down,
That's why I want her so.

And as I slip into her I
Just have to yell out, "Ah....!"
It's sheer delight to be inside
My love - my sleek, red car!

Wisteria woke me this morning,
And there was all June in the garden;
I felt them, early, warning
Lest I miss any part of the day.

Straight I walked to the trellis vine.
Wisteria touched a lifted nostril:
Feelings of beauty diffused, to entwine
My spirit with June's own aura.



Hysteria woke me this morning,
Giddy from stress, I wanted to puke.
I felt this early rotten warning;
Soon I wait with interrelated fear!

It frightens several so foolishly glum,
Hysteria touched an infantile man!
I'm feeling nauseated, wan and numb
Whew! 'Twas just that silly June bug!

This is the text of a letter from an excited young army-recruit from Eromanga, to Mum and Dad. (For those of you who don't know, Eromanga is a small town, west of Quilpie in the far south west of Queensland in Australia )

Dear Mum and Dad,

I'm very well and happy, and I hope youse are very well and happy too. Tell me two big brothers Dougie and Phil that the Army is much better than workin on the farm - tell them to get in pretty quick smart before the jobs here are all gone!

I was a bit slow in settlin in at first, because ya don't have to get outta bed until six in the mornin. But I'm happy ta sleep in now, cos all ya gotta do before brekky is make ya bed and polish ya boots and clean off ya uniform. No bloody cows to milk, no calves to feed, no feed to stack up - nothing! Ya haz ta have a shower though, but I've decided it's not that bad, cos there's loadsa hot water and even a proper light so's ya can see what ya's doing!

At brekky ya get the choices of cereals and fresh fruits and fried eggs but there ain't no kangaroo steaks or possum stew like Mum makes. Ya don't get fed again until noon and by that time all them pansy city boys are buggered because we've been on a route march - but, jeez it's only like strollin to the old red windmill up in the paddock!

Oh, yeah - and this one is gonna make me brothers Dougie and Phil die with laughter. I keep gettin these bloody medals for shootin - I dunno why.

They reckon I'm as good as any Olympic shooter! But, crikey, the bullseye is big as a possum's bum and it don't move away neither. And it don't fire back like the Windasses did when our big scrubber bull got into their prize cows before the Ekka last year!

All ya gotta do is just make yourself comfy, aim and hit the target. Crikey, it's a piece of piss! And ya don't even have ta load your cartridges, cos they come in little boxes, and ya don't have ta steady yourself against the rollbar of the roo shootin truck when ya reload!

Sometimes you've gotta wrestle with the city boys and I've gotta be extra careful cos they break easy - it ain't like fightin with Dougie and Phil and Grundy and Perry and Ginger and Nipper all at once like we do at home after the muster.

It turns out I'm not a bad boxer neither. In fact, it looks as if I'm the best darn boxer we got in our platoon at the moment, and I've only been beat once, by some Melbourne squaddie from the Engineers - he's six-foot-five and weighs nineteen stone and he's three pick-handles across the shoulders. As ya know I'm only five-foot-six, and seven stone wringin wet, but I fought him until the other blokes carried me off, still punchin, to the boozer.

I can't complain about being in the Army - tell the lads ta get in the queue dead fast before word gets around how darned good it all is.

Well, I've gotta go now, Mum and Dad, I've got a return match in a few minutes with that darn bloke who whupped me and this time I'm gonna whup im well and proper.

From your loving daughter,

Sheila xx




Your letter came today in a legal-looking envelope with a five-penny stamp on, and it would have given the boy and myself much pleasure had it not revived in us certain melancholy reflections of what has gone before.

You say my account should have been settled long ago and you can't understand why it hasn't been. Okay, let me quote the reasons:

In nineteen-sixty-four I bought a sawmill on credit.

In 'sixty-five I bought a team of horses, a timber wagon, two ponies, a goat, a Jack Russell, a double shotgun and two razor-backed pigs, all on credit.

In 'sixty-six the bloody mill burnt to the ground leaving not a solitary thing. One of the ponies croaked it and I lent the other to some bastard who starved the poor bugger to death.

Then I joined the church.

In 'sixty-seven my father died and my brother was strung up for raping a pensioner. Some bloody hobo seduced my daughter and I had to pay the bastard eighty quid to stop him becoming a relative.

In 'sixty-eight my boy got mumps which spread to his balls and the poor lad had to be castrated to save his life. Later, we all went lake-fishing and the rotten boat overturned, drowning two of my boys, neither being the castrated one.

In 'sixty-nine my missus took off with a sheep-shearer and left me with twins as a keepsake and I had to get a housekeeper in. I married her so as to keep expenses down, but it was a hell of a job making her pregnant.

I asked the doc about it and he told me to create some sort of excitement at the crucial moment. So, that night I took my shotgun to bed and, at a time I reckoned to be right, leaned out and fired the gun at the window. As a result, the wife shit the bed, I ruptured myself and the next morning I found I had shot my best cow.

In 'seventy-one somebody cut the nuts off my prize bull. I was really buggered, so I took to the drink. I carried on guzzling beer till all I had left was my pocket watch and a weak bladder. Winding the watch and frequently going for a piss kept me busy for quite a time.

After a year I took heart again and bought a muck-spreader, a tractor and a motor car, all on credit. Then a flood came and washed the whole bloody lot away. Meantime, my wife got VD from a travelling salesman and my boy died through wiping his arse on an infected possum skin. To cap it all some useless bastard mated my cow with a broken down old bull.

Ah, it amuses me to see in your letter that there'll be trouble if I fail to pay. Trouble? Ha! If you blokes can think of anything I have missed, I'd love to know about it.

Sirs; trying to get money out of me is like trying to poke butter up a porcupine's arsehole with a red hot needle.

I am praying that a shower of skunk shit will pass your way and I hope the centre of it is over you and the bunch of useless bastards in your office who sent me this final demand.

Yours for more credit.
