Poetry

Mine, and occasionally others'.

Cuckoo?

Bird sings at midnight
Climate change, light pollution 
Or just a daft cock?

Flexible Friend

Her weight is great
her line is fine

Her heart is smart
her spine's aligned

My friend can bend -
we're not sure when

She planned to stand
back up again

 

 

Seasonal Solidarity

To all the junior doctors
who showed their guts and spine

Picturehouse and Ritzy staff
in unity combine

The posties, drivers, guards and all
who chose to fight not whine

Season's greetings from the poets
on the picket line
