Homing Magpie-pigeon

Calling Home

I love my bike, I must confess
But reading maps, well, somewhat less.
Lost, alone,
Aha! A phone!
“Please Mummy, bring my GPS!”


Take your GPS and find Magpie Tales for real poems and stories!


  1. I realy like this very short poem!

    Also Stafford that looks like it could be you with a cowboy hat on....


  2. it is a wonder we ever got any where before...smiles...still got my maps....

  3. Maps and compass. Never would have made it through the mountains, and my brother-inlaw, the former Eagle Scout. Now I can rely on my iPhone, or my wife who hates GPSes and prefers maps. Funny take on the prompt!

  4. Get the GPS going, get the coordinates. Great Limerick Stafford!


  5. You are still calling for Mum, Stafford? I bet she can do handstands on the bike!

  6. Good poke - I love that phone booth ... over here they are now a great rarity, your non-map reader was lucky to find one!

  7. Oh I’m with the weary traveller on this one. Made me smile.

  8. Thank you for making me smile on a Monday Stafford! This is AWESOME! :-)

  9. I know what GPS I'd be bringing him...a Great Pigging Slap...!!

  10. Look at that, a man desperate enough to ask for directions.

  11. I kept thinking of ET when I saw the picture!

    1. Indeed, my thought too Isabel.

      Good to catch up read some of your recent posts Stafford. Just this one quick comment for days and days of your work. Sorry. Of course, you're probably off with another writing already.

      Isabel, now let's tell ET to phone home


  12. I've been surfing online more than three hours today, but I never found any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the web can be a lot more helpful than ever before.
