A Small Poem of Despair…

Tis the season to be hateful

To incite violence

From the faithful.


Far right, far left

All are quite bereft

Of behaving at their ethical best.


We should hang our heads in shame

For all of us are to blame

For tolerating extremism

Homophobia and racism,

For allowing too many lies

From our political masters and their allies,

From the unholy mess

That is the national and international press.


There is no high moral ground

Simply hatred scattered all around


So for fuck’s sake make sure you vote

Democracy is on the ropes

And you are its last hope


Brexit, Trump and Turnball

An unholy trinity that don’t bear thinking of at all!! (Images from private collection)
