I have always disliked isms. The recent appointment of Diane Abbott to Shadow home secretary has brought out some horrendous racist and sexist abuse.
It is not good form to abuse someone for doing their job and doing it well, I like poetry and wrote this in support of her.
Reposting this poem as it just didn’t feel right not being on an image. Enjoy.
I can’t sleep when something is on my mind. This poem popped out of my mind at 3 am this morning, can’t imagine what inspired it.
Couldn’t decide whether to post it on my political blog or creative one so I decided to put it in both.
If you like it feel free to comment or share 🙂
What happened to democracy?
Was it stolen by hypocrisy
Enslaved by aristocracy
Or Replaced by an autocracy
Then buried in bureaucracy.
Where can we find equality?
Has it run away with honesty?
When corrupted by frivolity
And beaten by brutality.
Disguised as an authority.
Have we really lost humanity?
Was it deafened by profanity
And lured into insanity
By acts of pure depravity
If so then it’s a tragedy
With The Wolfian issue 9 being released on Kindle and it being sadly the final issue I thought I’d try to tempt you with an extract from my political piece in there.
As usual the editor has kindly published some of my poetry including This one and the final edition ends with an amazing opportunity to have a book published with a Summer Sun poetry competition.
Tin Foil Hats Anyone?
‘Do you watch NCIS? Gibbs has rules, I like rule #9 always carry a knife but it’s illegal over here so I can’t. I do agree however with rule #39 ‘There is no such thing as coincidence.’ and he always trusts his gut instinct, and he’s always right too.
Now being a geek I do like The X Files and am aware that most conspiracy theorists wear tin foil hats but what happens if they are correct. Will the world run out of tin foil?
I among many, many others were very suspicious of the 2015 election results. The warning signs had already been there, van full of ballot papers ‘stolen’, candidates’ names ‘missing’ from ballot papers, candidates votes being found UNDER someone else’s, postal voters not receiving their ballot papers, ex-pats receiving theirs too late to be able to use them. Something Cameron said too before the election that he wouldn’t be staying for a third term, Freudian slip or did he already know the outcome?’
If you want to read the rest of this piece and other great articles go to Amazon for the kindle version. It’s only 99p.
Go on – you know you want to.
This is a little something I wrote for the next edition of The Wolfian but with the recent events I thought it could do with airing now.
Just because the media is focusing on the EU result, the the Tory leadership battle and the traitorous Labour MP’s, it doesn’t mean that everyone has forgotten about the Tory Election Fraud.
