The Stages Of Life

As humans we start this life much like we end it - crawling, incoherent and shitting our pants - such is the circle of life. The following is my scientific analysis on human life in a nutshell...

Life In A Metaphorical Nutshell

You have probably just read my learned piece on The Stages Of Life. And, presumedly, loved it very much, throwing bouquets of roses from the balcony with a tear in your eye in admiration. That's natural. If you haven't read it yet, you should. Or wait for the movie starring Jason Bateman and Celia Paquola and save yourself the hassle of reading.

In it (unless it was cut from the movie version) you will remember the well-known turn of phrase I had regurgitated in the name of journalism. That is, the one about life in a nutshell.
Peace'O'Mind Cartoon

Of course, no one lives their life inside a nutshell. Unless you happen to be a nut.

A Poem: My Turn

My Turn
By Ronnie Peace

[A Poem about Australia's newest Prime Minister, 2015]

Malcolm before
Mal come again
Malcolm's turn now
Turn bull to PM

A butt of the joke
Abbott of the spill
Tony down to knee
The odds shorten, Bill

A Labor of love
A Liberal amount
The votes have come in
But the Greens won't count

Bishop to Rook
Hockey one, Hockey two,
