AddNib 80

Here’s a surprise

Anither interest rate rise

Borrowers micht feel the pinch

Wait a mo, dis pinch no mean tae steal?

Savers in the pink

A think A detect a stink

A Musky type o smell Oh Richy eh O

Hae nae doubt

Addnib will find ye buggers out!

The ither nicht across the park

Jist efter dark

A keeked intae a top flare windae

An saw a sicht A thoucht A widnae

A wifie in a big thick coat an scarf

Round a candle oan a worktop

Oh dearest Rich eh O

Yon stealin’s gonnae hae tae stop

Fir aw yer gain

Thir’s far twa muckle folk in pain!

AddNibs Weather WARNING

Nae end in sicht

But micht be awright the nicht

A boucht myself a vapour rub

An a video

O the White Heather Club.

AddNib 79

During the nicht

A got an awfie fricht

Glancin at yon Smart Meter

A thoucht, that cannae be richt

Fir the middle o the nicht

A wis in ma kip be 10 o’clock

An ne’er switched an amp

An noo the hoose is gettin cauld

The wa’s are showin signs o damp

There’s an awfie Musky smell,

Noo A’m no the world’s richest man

Fir tea A micht manage a tattie fritter

An listen tae the budgie Twitter

Or tweet like Fried wie hints o remorse,

Jist another horse of course.

AddNib’s Weather WARNING

Yesterday a ventured oer the park

Shouldnae hae left it tae efter dark

A didnae see that glint o ice

An fell oan me bahookie,

An let me tell ye, A ain’t nae rookie

So mind how ye go

Jist because thir’s nae a hint o snow;

Be cool, be calm an tak things slow

Ye’ll still git there in a tick or mo.

AddNib 78

It must be cauld EU Vice President’s

Assets hae frozen

President’s in shock

EU caught between a rock

An a hard place.

Major rail strikes begin

So Rich eh O is staying in

Thinks thirs nowt much sweeter

Than haen a prepaid meter

An a braw handmade plate o stew,

Ye see the payer o yon meter –

Is YOU

AddNib’s Weather WARNING

Minus seven through the nicht

Got up fir a pee

Whit a fricht

A’d left ma slippers ben the room

Could see ma breath

An condensation spelled oot doom

Ma trusted Smart Meter said oer a pound

Wie nothing oan that could be found,

Ne’er mind o Rich eh O

Yer shares in Power are rising tae

The Power Smart Buggers

Hae not gone away.

Noo where’s they slippers?🥶

AddNib 77

Noo dinnae panic,

A huvnae died an gaun tae Heaven

As if ye wid says you

Weel nae luck it’s true

He’s back, yer intrepid Gumshoe.

Nae sign o Rich eh though;

Micht hae taen a turn fir the worst?

Or maybe no –

Anywie o Rich eh O

Mind how ye go, it’s cauld oot there

There snaw an ice upon the stair;

The yin that goes doon, as weel as up

The yin that spills the bubbly,

Afore ye can “lovely jubbly.”

Thir’s folk o every age,

Where life is no a stage –

Whae are cauld an hungry

An cannae meet thir bills

Nae matter how they try

But watch oot Richy O

Fir in his grave auld AddNib disnae lie,

Like Zoro strikes his mark in ink

An micht just guide us fae this stink

Nae promise mind o being in the pink

But maybe jist scratch thir armour

Enough tae mak a chink.

AddNib’s Weather Warning

If ye, like me, are gettin auld

Stay in, fir ootside’s awfie cauld

So is in says you

Yer right

But power profits say

It will be awright oan the night.

But then they dinnae half talk some shite!!!

My Books 2

Dear Readers, please accept my apologies regarding the availability of my books but my account problem with Amazon is as yet unresolved.

I have been receiving many enquiries as to where my books are available to purchase but unfortunately they are not yet for sale until my publishing problem is resolved.

The good news is that this hiccup has not in any way stemmed the flow of my writing and I am busy writing the follow up to my last novel and have more ideas in the pipeline, including a possible return to JP Associates.

I can only hope that your patience will be rewarded by the coming novels.

Wishing you all a great Christmas and a fab New Year!

Alan

Dear Readers, apologies to those who have tried to find my books on Amazon or KDP in the last days and have not been able to find them.

My publishing account is now closed with this company and I am in the process of finding a new platform for my work.

I hope that in the next while you will once again find my work online.

Apologies once more for any inconvenience this may have caused.
