Sillily-Serious Poem – Young Boris

I wrote this, yesterday morning (17th Oct, 2019), after observing a youthful Boris lookalike sauntering through St. Peter’s market square, Sudbury. Later that day, I had the misfortune of hearing the news about Boris agreeing a deal with the EU!

Boris, young, with same loose tongue,

whips, carefree, ‘neath

glare of St. Peter’s .

Cap back-to-front,

hair, yellow and dishevelled, fringe lines horizontal and stabbing through,

clasp of hat.

A warning, pointed, of youth allowed to root and grow unhindered –

carefree, arrogant, dangerous. Portent of a future, our future, doomed

by a folly.

Do take the time to read the opening chapters of my new serialised novel, a dystopian tale of life after Brexit:

Chapter 1 – The Half-Girlfriend

Chapter 2 – The Half-Sister
