Gary Diamond Poems
A Woman In Lingerie
There's something classically appealing about a good woman Dressed in different kinds of lingerie. Some like it so much, they have seperate pieces For any given day.
The Human Condition
Of all the things we've been given Whether by God or by evolution (not sure which are we) It's the ability of thinking, sensible reasoning That I call
This Is Good Rock And Roll
The guitars are loud and proud and ballsy. The singer's dementia is some kind of palsy. The bass drum will kick and the rhythm will stroll. This is good rock and roll.
To me, television is a chore. It is a bore. It shows half a program, then makes you sift through adverts for more.
Closing up and clamming up in social situations. Walking into a party full of unknown faces. There could be a genius in there.
Trust No One
This Is good advice. If you trust
Shape Of The Gun
Does it make any sense to you to say that the shape of a mans soul Is not dissimilar to that of a weapon. Certainly the shape was molded and mutated But always
If you can't get along in this life Fucking quit. Because we're all quitting.
You've seen the funhouse mirrors at the carnivals and fares. Some make you fat or thin, others short or tall. Some make you look like you're not even there.
Have you ever felt time stand still and then appear to run forwards and backwards Simultaneously? Did you ever see a painting of a tea clipper on the wall Melt and fade into spinning circles like watching several washing machines
fairweather friends that'll drift away on the nearest storm. faces creasing up with laugher amidst uproar. i used to be a player but playing dried up a year ago. when you're this difficult to work with no-one wants to know.
Transport For London
Public transport was at an all-time low no-one was in doubt about that. When I had come to London to study
To The Killer - I Want My Suicide Back
Those who aren't afraid to die Those that might welcome it Aren't quite so lucky.
Death To The Cynics
I like to think of the cynic as the person who once was optimistic. And was so optimistic and so let down by it That it turned around on the fly.

A Woman In Lingerie
There's something classically appealing about a good woman
Dressed in different kinds of lingerie.
Some like it so much, they have seperate pieces
For any given day.
I must admit that I've not been lucky enough to have a woman dress up in something lacy
Something sensuously revealing and fancy.
A woman's naked skin is a powerful aphrodisiac
But I'd like it best when you have to peel off
Layers of skimpy lace and silk
To claim your prize.
I dream often about the fifties blond, perfectly made up
And attired in thin silken nightgown, barely ...
