Poetry

Mine, and occasionally others'.

Why can't you just be normal?

Autistic screeching

Why do you like that tuneless music?
Do your hair the way you choose it?
I thought you’d got it, then you lose it
Why can’t you just be normal?

Can’t you make yourself conform?
Do anything that’s near the norm?
Don’t you know there’s a uniform?
Why can’t you just be normal?

Flowers Beside the Line

RMT on Port Talbot

When workers leave their homes to graft
by muscle or by brain
The least they need is safety from
the dangers and the strain
So those who wave their loved ones off
can wave them home again

Flowers will lie beside the line
where working people fell
For those who keep our railways safe -
they must be safe as well
