Fa – the name of the Green Dragon

A Place for the Odd Musings of an Expat Bristolian

The cabinet Maker

Now as we witness the departure of Flynn

Trumpty’s team liars are beginning to thin.

One suspects of course he didn’t go it alone

But the calls to the Russians, Trumpty condoned.


Like at the barber’s we wonder who’s next

If not Bannon or Spicer we’ll all be vexed.

Though Conway’s a candidate to bid us farewell

We have to be patient and time it will tell.


Joseph Clancy just announced he’s resigning his post

For him Secret Service is permanent toast.

He says it’s so that Trumpty can choose

His own director so we’ll watch for the news.


We’ve heard that Trumpty is not a big reader

It also shows he’s not a great leader.

The white House is in upheaval they say

Crisis on crisis occurs every day


Putin has deployed a cruise missile we learned

A thirty year old treaty now has been spurned

Sad thing, there’s nothing Trumpty knows how to do 

But he’ll think of something out of the blue.


He’s not inclined to take expert advice

His know-nothings will have us just pay the price

Talking of prices did you see the cost of his wall?

The wall will be high and the price will be tall


He wants to save millions on jets that defend

And spend billions on fences he has no way to mend.

Most cabinet makers are craftsmen well trained

But Trumpty you are completely lame-brained.

Your mental acuity is under great stress

And when you are gone God will us bless!

I have reached the regrettable realization that I may have squandered my life. I did a quick count recently and figured that I have visited about 66 countries, and lived for more than 3 years in 3 of them. During this time I completed 14 corporate moves (relocations) and have changed my address more than 23 times. I should have settled on a profession that would have kept me in one place with no packing and unpacking. When I think of the time I have spent bundling my life into and out of boxes. Ah well, it's all water under the bridge. But I am grateful for the experience. At the end of the day I will be able to say with a certain authority, "been there, done that". A note about this site’s Header Image The Header image for this site is of the Smith Avenue High Bridge. The bridge was built in 1889 and carries Minnesota State Highway 149 across its span of 2770 feet, 160 feet above the mighty Mississippi River. The picture was taken from the river looking to the north-east and downtown Saint Paul. The bridge is about 1040 miles from New Orleans. One of the reasons I like this view is that I come from a city which has a spectacular bridge. It’s the Clifton Suspension Bridge http://www.ikbrunel.org.uk/clifton-suspension-bridge which spans the Avon Gorge and the River Avon in Bristol, U.K. It’s about 1350 feet long and stands 245 feet above the river below. Sadly it has claimed the lives of more than 400 people who have committed suicide by jumping from the bridge. As a side note, not all attempts were successful. two small girls thrown off the bridge by their deranged father survived the fall when they were fished from the river by the crew of a passing pilot boat. The bridge was opened in 1864 and was designed by the 24 year old architect, Isambard Kingdom brunel. It took 35 years to complete.
