New and Bold: A Savvy View

Why leave, as we’re told, when some are not sold? It’s not new and it’s not bold, to go back to the old.   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, May 2019 Written in response to Theresa May’s claim to have a ‘new and bold’ Brexit deal. See The Independent for further details.   Image by pixel2013 from…

Has to Go: SSS Politics

She has to go. Has to go as she hammers it home; as she hams up her deal for hammering it up with Corbyn.   She was the one. She was the one tapping a pencil on her desk, tap, tap, tapping it up, vying for attention from her teacher.   She is not for…

People’s May Pole: SSS Politics

“Colleagues have paid dearly for our prime minister’s failure to believe in and back the decision of 17.4 million voters to leave the EU. People are sick of our incompetence and inability to deliver and to honour our promises. We will be annihilated in the Euro elections if we break another promise and adopt Corbyn’s…

Mojito: Poem Dedicated to Diane Abbott

Inspired by news about Diane Abbott’s drinking habits. Taking a swig of Mojito is ‘noble’, especially if done on a train. And taking a snap of Diane is no trouble, especially for one with no name.   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, April 2019   Image by StockSnap from Pixabay

Saturday Sauce: A Silly Poem

On this, such a fine day, I sat on a turd, feeling quite turgid and grey. It’s true that it really was quite absurd, to be morbid when so close to May. But the lovely Theresa, she tasted like curd, and it made me less shy, I must say! So, although you might think me…

Flighty in Florida: A Silly Poem

Fuelled-up and fired-up, Trump falls to the floor, and soon finds his feet – for now he has four! Fluffed-up and fun-filled, he friends-up with Vlad fooling Melana that Vlad’s just a fad! Flighty in Florida, Mel wants her fill; unable to fake it, Trump becomes ill. Mel fancies the flop is linked-up with Vlad,…

Engineered

He turned to face us; he had a knife; he was shouting; we had no choice – we shot him! Self-defence. He was dangerous! Dangerous? Yes, dangerous! He was waving the knife around – waving it at my colleague! So, you see, I had to help. We stick together. I, we. We had no choice….

Misalignment

Has to be someone who won’t toe the line; someone with a brain that won’t align its views and ambitions with those in time who see a ladder and recklessly climb.   Who is that someone who will not follow fish hijacking views not easy to swallow?   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, March 2019…

Resignation

  A sign. May offers to resign. But, only if MPs accept her design. May’s not a loss, but why toe the line, if to give her the toss, we’ll swap her for twine?   Even if Donald has excellent thighs, why tie up our produce in a tangle of lies?   Copyright owned by…

Exonerated

False. All made up. All made up and fixed up. All the words that blow out of my mouth. All bubbles, airborne and popping, leaving nothing. No untruths, no fairy tales, no collaborative cock-up with Putin. All filled up, popped up and emptied, I leave you with my nothingness. An empty space –     …
