The Moment It Chafes

The moment chafes
Crinkling up my nostrils
Giving me…pause
When what I really need are paws
I’m in the open water this time
And my legs fight to float
Tweet, chirp, tweet
Must keep this bird in my box
Purr, meow, purr
A blow back so fierce
Ready or not here comes love
Living in a bell jar
My fingers have no traction
It’s a solitary solo
Will my screech crack the glass?

Familiar Faces, Familiar Faeces

Familiar faces, familiar faeces,

I’ve seen and heard this shit before.

The rich look after their own interests,

Whilst pissing all over those of the poor.

We’re apes we have hierarchies!

We shouldn’t expect more or less!

But should we as we have a conscience?

With empathy we have been blessed.

Familiar faces, familiar faeces,

I’ve seen and heard this shit before.

The greed that stops the wealth of immigration.

Through Brexit or a fucking Wall.
