Causes

Caused by what fors and closed doors
Something's up on the upper floors
Down on all fours
Looking for an explanation
Must be caused by vaccination
Not-so-innocent innoculation
Caused by flaws or some mutation
Looking for the insanity clause
Looking for an injury claim
Looking for someone or something to blame

Disability Officer's Report to RMT London Transport Regional Council, August 2015

1. Protesting against attacks on disabled people. The Tories are intensifying their assault on disabled people's rights, particularly access to benefits. I will be circulating information about protests and other events in and around London. Please look out for these and encourage members to take part.

Manifesto from Behind the Mask

Janine performing 'Manifesto from Behind the Mask', a poem about being autistic and try to fit into society, and about how society might change to make it easier for autistic people to fit in.

This performance was recorded at the launch of the DIRT poetry pamphlet, at the Betsey Trotwood in London, in June 2015.

Fence Sitter

They're cutting help to those in need - 
What case to vote against?
This is a tricky one indeed 
I'm staying on the fence

Scrap targets for child poverty?
My mind is wracked with doubt
Perhaps, no - maybe, probably -
I'm sitting this one out
