Her Majesty, The Queen, Elizabeth II

With elegance, and unsurpassed grace,

Our beautiful Queen lit up every space,

In loyal duty, until the end,

Events and ceremonies, she’d attend.

 

A wondrous Queen, full of fun and wit,

She even did a Paddington skit.

Parachuting, with James Bond,

Our Queen, of whom, we’d become so fond.

 

In the longest reign, virtuous and kind,

Our monarch, was thus defined.

Her rule may be over, but our memories nest,

In peace, with Philip, now may she rest.

 

Her Majesty, The Queen, Elizabeth II, 1926 – 2022.

Mind Blood – Five Star Review!

5.0 out of 5 stars 

Couldn’t put it down!!!!

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 August 2022

Mind Blood is a brilliant little book of short stories – some had me thinking… One or two made me giggle and a few were quite impossible not to question if it could happen to you… or has it yet to happen?? So many little twists and lots of blood – my poor brain has had to have a holiday!! Well done to David for a book I can pick up again and again to quench my thirst of little short stories without having to leave the light on but keep me awake thinking… Drip Drip drip… Is anybody there? It’s just a book… Let your imagination run amok with this little gem of a book. Go on. I dare you.
