Seeking rhyme and reason in politics these days
Great victory, Boris!
Still reading Horace?
Dear me, Jeremy,
his own worst enemy.
And Nigel Farage?
 must be still at large.
Has Donald Trump
got caught in a sump?
Is Vladimir Putin
for world power still rootin'?
Emmanuel Macron
is still getting on.
Angela Merkel
rhymes with "Ferkel'.
which means little pig.'

A Donald Named Trump
There once was a Donald named Trump 
whom the lib(e)rals considered a chump, 
a grump and a sump, 
a gump and a dump — 
with a noggin as plump as his rump.

Premium Member Feeling It



“I am feeling it.” He said.
He meant his age, and as I watched
I saw a vision of him…
Ribs broke away
from the cuttlefish bone of his breast
opening outward in a rueful grin.
I saw his heart stuttering over a word.
I watched his...Read More

Premium Member Love Bones

Bedsprings crochet bones together.
His back is sutured to gripes
stitched to gummy joints.

In the toilet, avoiding the mirror,
humming softly,
shunning conversation with himself -
the ceiling drips a sump of memories.

The park --- Frances revolves confused.
"I don't understand."
A phrase with self-winding words.

A slight...Read More

Trump had Brain Of A Bird

To me, about Trump what had occurred,
Has been known to have brain of a bird;
Limited ability;
Almost senility;
Absurd but by him realize are reassured.

With us wondered what we should bring,

Trumped up Poetry Book
Trump now loves rhyme, its integral
to his existence as his name 
rhymes with so many words so well
and words that qualify his fame,

There’s flump and rump and also plump,
then’s sump and its close cousin, slump
and not forgetting grump and dump

And what to choose
Coffee or tea?

Fragmented frogs frolicking fruitlessly freeing flavoursome fairy freckles,
But what of the speckled hound in the bin?
Well he growled,
He snarled,
The sole paw pilot pivoting,
How interesting was it to note though that the frogs although fragmented held a fragrance like...Read More

Asbestos I can tell,

Old Man Trump
Was a really grouchy grump
Who would sit  upon his rump
Like a couch-potato chump
Like a Groper poised to jump
Anything that he could hump
With a tiny little stump
He would huff and puff and pump
Till he found the City Dump
And became another...Read More

Who tweets toxic thoughts like a pump
And has shown that we are his sump?

This chump dump he must own

HARMATOPHILE

If I could I would

Turn off this love faucet

It has begun to back up again.

Flooded the basement

Filled with mud

Devotion, emotion and dust.

All this broken plumbing

A chemical eroding trust

Our constant numbing in procrastination

A cracking foundation

A sump pump drains

The rain is...Read More
