Leaves Creep In

Leaves creep in
And grin
At me, from the floor.
There are more
Outside, piled high
by The wind.
They can be cleared away
But, there can be no denial
That, one day
I to, shall be swept away
Along with these, fallen, leaves.

A Gorgeous Young Lady Named Honey

A gorgeous young lady named Honey
Is dating me for my money.
I’m having so much hot fun,
And I’m learning how to professionally run,
For when she finds I’ve no money!

Beginnings and Leaving

On an early winter evening,
In the darkening park,
I thought on beginnings,
And leaving.
Then, on my way home,
I heard a couple behind.
They passed, out of sight,
Into a cold, December night,
Leaving me behind.

I Saw A Portrait Of Lord Salisbury Smile

I saw a portrait
Of Lord Salisbury smile,
And heard the late
Bevan turn in his grave.

Corbynites are in denial,
One-nation Tories say,
“Disraeli will save
The day”.

Salisbury continues to smile,
The bereft,
Remain, in denial.

General Election Day

Today is general election day.
The sun must
Rise on Johnson or Corbyn.
Soon, manifestos will gather dust,
Or be re-read with a cynical grin
By people who will say,
“You promised such and such
On election day”.
Then, in disgust
They will throw the thing away.
Oh the joy
For girl and boy
Of yet, another, election day!
