A century since

Orwell coined
“War is peace” and “Doublethink”
Today: normalised

TARNISHED CHROME

Always remember
No such thing as a free lunch
Google … Predator

The Next (Goose) Step

THE NEXT (GOOSE) STEP

The “top” one per cent
Terrified, naturally
Of those they exploit

Their diagnosis?
Organised supervision
i.e.: police state

This Gem

This gem is dedicated to my U.S. “followers”. (What an unfortunate term that is.) My thoughts are frequently with you in your plight.

At times I think satire is all that’s left. Other times I see it differently.

And there’s always poetry.

Badge Of Shame

BADGE OF SHAME

Pride and prejudice
I love the book but hate it
Used as a motto

Don’t look a gift horse
In the mouth the saying goes
That’s where the fangs are
But they never tell you that
Or the reason why they don’t

Invisible Vampires (A Four By Six)

INVISIBLE VAMPIRES

They hover all round us
Tell me you don’t feel them
Be trusting, be open
But be nobody’s fool

Casualty (A Four By Six)

CASUALTY

Casual racism
You see it everywhere
Never casual though
For its recipients

The White House Goes To The Dark Side

THE WHITE HOUSE GOES TO THE DARK SIDE

Darth Vader puked sTrump.
sTrump IS Darth Vader … in drag
… but without the brains.

“Thou art a (s)trumpet!” – Shakespeare.
And that’s not the half of it.

Standing Rock

STANDING ROCK

I have a struggle
In comprehending those

Who are using rubber bullets and tear gas
On these unarmed and peaceful protesters

How far they have lost their way
Since their birth as innocents

I wonder what lives they have endured
To have them land up in this dismal situation

Still, you do get a kind of identity
And the uniform and weapons come free
