I'm PROUD My Kid's Going To Jail!

       The Inhaler That Shadows Cast

I love you in front of
and sometimes behind
Shadow's and inklings
your two of a kind

Ideas all cluttery
churned in your sleep
As gracious a subject
as mind's eyes compete

Inhaling my soul
as the image suggests
What mighty idea's
to mixed and digest

An ending as fiery as the
red room is bold
Nice that YOU'RE the main focus, 
as  deep as it's cold.

Tonight and tomorrow night and for the second year running, my son's band No Need For Idols is playing a gig in Scotland's only woman's prison. The guys rocked it out last Christmas at Cornton Vale in Stirling and hailed it as one of the best venue's to have ever played. Mind you, at regular gigs the fans pan out 50-50 girls and boys, so a female-only filled pheromone hall is gonna make them that little bit more appreciative, work a sweat up even quicker!  Last year's performance was a huge success but with the band being another year older, the gals are in for an even better jingle-jail rock!

Lena, didn't you worry just a little bit? I mean, Those young men, standing up there on stage,
in front of all those love straved women!

There is nothing as good as a captive audience!
