Savvy Poem – Boulder Dough

Climate change, trolls, homophobia and racism dominate the news. Is this refreshing, not to hear about Brexit? Or, does it all roll in together – all kneaded up in a lump of dough – until, ball-like, it’s pushed nudged down, until it crushes us.   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, 20th September 2019 Please read,…

Obliteration: An Elegy

  Barely literate, and not rated, Trump lit his own fuse, turned red, and reiterated his desire to obliterate a whole country.   Being rational, and not rationed, the ralliers lit several fuses, turned to face the blighter, and reiterated a shared desire to obliterate the whole of the irrational.   And they did so –…

Really quite something!

  It’s really quite something that we want to Remain. If only old Farrage, would get sucked down my drain!   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, May 2019   Image by Semevent from Pixabay   Please follow Jay Cool’s and like more of her poems: Chocolate: A Silly Poem Purple Berry Augmentation: A Silly Poem…

The Way Through: SSS Politics

 ‘Can we find a way through this?’ she asks. A rhetorical question, requiring no response. ‘We have  a duty’, and ‘I believe that leaving the EU is the right way!’ Strange, as she was the one who voted to stay! I say the ‘one’, as she requires no other voice but her own. The ‘People’s…

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 –     …

Remain

Private Eye’s up for stockpiling, bog roll and tinned sardines – so hard to keep on smiling, with Tories such machines   that May just keeps on ranting (she’s sticking to her guns) and won’t admit lamenting, the ones who had the runs.   No hope of her resigning (she’s far too fond of mules),…

On the Day that May Listens

  I will dive into a small gathering of Independents, I will spread out amongst them, filling in the gaps with my thoughts and my opinions, that will be shared and listened to, along with theirs. I will be the glue that, when baked, rises and spills over, spreading the sweet taste of freshness far…

It’s time to guide our daughter, and our grandchild, home …

Indeed it is ‘heart-breaking’. Populist British newspapers have lost sight of the fact that Shamima Begum was a child when she made the decision to join ISIS. British children are not allowed to vote until the age of 18, are not allowed to marry (without parental permission) until 18, and cannot leave the institution of…
