Charles CorrectionShaggy Doo Beats is the alter ego of Adelaide performance poet Charles Crompton. He is the beat meister. He plays with words. He creates moods with the sounds of words and performs his poems with jazz musicians. Poempig feels this poem captures exquisitely the prickly restlessness and random thoughts of insomnia.

Here is a poem called Mistakes by Adelaide poet Charles Crompton aka professional performance poet, Shaggy Doo Beats. We all want to be grown-up and in control. This poem captures the essence of the offness we all feel on an off-day often in an off-month in an off year. We all have them. Charles Crompton

I was a child

That grew up

But as an adult I still in life can

Muck it up

Fuck it up

Stuff it up

Bugger it up

Screw it up

Mess it uppaint pic

Smash it up

Rip it up

Blow it up

Throw it up

Live it up

Loosen it up

Giveit up

Pick it up

Hang it up

Tidy up.

Lifeguards are patrolling

Melanomas are tolling
