Silly Politics – Boris’ Eggy Feet

Do I really want to go forward with 2020, when I’ve just had the most bizarre carrot on a stick dangled in front of my senses? Who, in the UK, or for that matter, the rest of the world, be it of American or European ilk, would want to egg old Boris on, as heContinue reading “Silly Politics – Boris’ Eggy Feet”

Silly Boris Romps to Power

Ms Swinson said the result was “hugely disappointing” in her seat and across the country, as Boris Johnson romped to victory with a comfortable Conservative majority. (Andrew Griffin in ‘Live Comment’) Romped. Why? Surely, I am not the only non-religious Brit, to wake up in horror this morning at the realisation that I will beContinue reading “Silly Boris Romps to Power”

Silly Poem – Divvy Dong

A response to Boris’ fine use of alliteration in his ‘dribble, drift, delay and dither’ drivel of a ‘Get Brexit Done!’ campaign.   Boris, dithering, dipped and dripped. “Well, I’ll be danged, if I didn’t deliver!” he drivelled, demented, dribbling, and delayed.   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, 24th November 2019 Image by kie-ker fromContinue reading “Silly Poem – Divvy Dong”

Look at theContinue reading “Savvy Book – Truth To Power”

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 . CapContinue reading “Sillily-Serious Poem – Young Boris”

Savvy Poem – Distalk

A response to an article suggesting that staff at the BBC were told not to back Naga Munchetty, following viewer’s complaints about her jibe at Trump’s racist remarks. Do not talk to her. And do not discuss her disgust with the dissing. You must not disagree, disobey, or disappoint, unless you too want to be dissedContinue reading “Savvy Poem – Distalk”

English & Proud?

  Those batty English Democrats are surely pretty dim To be living on an island when none of them can swim! I can see them standing straight and proud, all making such a din – when global warming takes its toll and the waves come rolling in!   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, July 2019,Continue reading “English & Proud?”
