 i wanted one life
you wanted another
we couldn't have our cake
so we ate eachother.

 Mrs Moon
sitting up in the sky
little old lady
rock-a-bye
with a ball of fading light
and silvery needles
knitting the night

by Roger McGough
 Everyday,
I think about dying.
About disease, starvation, violence, terrorism, war, the end of the world.
It helps keep my mind off things.

by Roger McGough
 I explain quietly.
You hear me shouting.
You try a new tack.
I feel old wounds reopen.
You see both sides.
I see your blinkers.
I am placatory.
You sense a new selfishness.
I am a dove.
You recognize the hawk.
You offer an olive branch.
I feel the thorns.
You bleed.
I see crocodile tears.
I withdraw.
You reel from the impact.

by Roger McGough
 The time I like best is 6am
when the snow is 6 inches deep
which I'm yet to discover
'cause I'm under the covers
fast, fast asleep.

by Roger McGough
 I wanna be the leader
I wanna be the leader
Can I be the leader?
Can I? I can?
Promise? Promise?
Yippee I'm the leader
I'm the leader

OK what shall we do?

by Roger McGough
 with love
give me your hand
some stranger
is fiction than truth

without love
I'm justa has
been away
too long in the tooth.



by Roger McGough
 She is so beguiling 
That when she beckons
I can run a mile
In twenty seconds.
