Fly Fishing

FLY FISHING

Some interactions
End up being exposed as
No more than fishing

On A Plate

ON A PLATE

So very tired of all those
Poor Facebook addicts
Posting pics of the food
They are about to eat
He posted a photo of
What he’d already eaten

Brown, sausage-shaped
Shining on a white plate

Sadly it did not go viral
Then he remembered
“If at first you don’t …”
He thought, “I’ll produce
A more successful one
And post it tomorrow!”

Mixed Metaphors

MIXED METAPHORS

Destiny calling
Blindfolds, earplugs, out to lunch
Black sheep sleepwalking

Police And Thieves

POLICE AND THIEVES

Duly sworn in as if to protect us
Are our police and politicians

Similarly dogs are very useful
If one for example owns sheep

Having sheep one requires dogs
They each have particular uses

Dogs, see, have a dual purpose
Sheep, bless them, only one

The dogs guard the sheep
While they graze and fatten

The dogs then herd them
To be safely delivered

To the slaughterhouse
To be prepared for the table

Police and politicians
Forsworn and redefined

Police and thieves
Police and thieves

Roll Up, Roll Up, The Circus Is In Town (Republished)

ROLL UP, ROLL UP, THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN

Deafening election ballyhoo
A further relapse into insanity
Louder, louder, worse and worse
The lies … The misdirection

Like the two sides
Of the same bad coin
Turning up over and over
Heads I win, tails you lose

Like a rancid smell
In the soggy walls
And rotting floorboards
Of the Off-white House

Don’t flatter yourself
You have no real value
To the puppet masters
Who possess you

As they have none to you
The dupes who ticked your box
They’re used to tests from school
This one’s a gullibility test

Broken News

BROKEN NEWS

Beware the media!
Narrative managers
Quietly pull the strings;
Consumers their puppets.

You wish to eat poison?
If so then please do so
But if not I suggest
You switch the damned thing off!

Dumbed Down

DUMBED DOWN

Let’s try sensible
The smart ones love it in us
They feel less lonely

You like Gorgol. You Like Fessebouche.

Black Hole

They study deep space
The garden is overgrown
Odd priority

Sexism V. Feminism: Four By Six

SEXISM V. FEMINISM

There are those who get it
And then those who fail to
Who inflicts? Who suffers?
Balls or tits? Beside the point
