A very nice color combination, and what a clever way to protect the rope!

It has a feeling of opposition and strength, it is as if they're fighting against each other.

Blue plastic sleeve 'neath a complex knot
And some twisted wire that you forgot,
A ring, a bolt, a concrete wall,
A Saturday Shadow to please us all,
Let's not forget the compulsory rust,
As the RAS boss, I guess you must,
But here's a challenge for you today,
Give us just one image without decay!

Bondage Division, R.A.S.,
Has lately been a bitty mess:
With loads of locks and strings of rope
And hordes of hawsers, on the slope
From ship to shore, you might have thought
That pictures of a ship in port
Would be enough to satisfy
All rusty tastes. But Mick and I
Have had some diff'rent fish to fry:
The road to War has been my study
In recent weeks, while my Leith buddy
Has spread his wings and felt he must
Photograph other things than rust.

But here and now the die is cast:
Our Mick's decided at long last
The way to activate the slouches,
To get them leaping off their couches,
Get out and exercise their brains
By seeking out and snapping chains,
Is - peacefully to sit at home
And write his intro as a pome
!

BlushBlushBlushBlushBlush

Regards
Bill

A rusty ring, a bit of wire
is just all of Mick's desire.
Add some rope, a bit of plastic
Makes the image sheer fantastic.
Too much of a challenge I would say,
Is for Mick a shoot without decay!
Things rotted, knotted, rusty, muddy
They are Mick's objects of study!

Whell, at least I tried to write my comment in rhymes.
Silly, silly... but aye, it's Sunday.
