Mine, and occasionally others'.
A short, satirical poem about Henry Bolton's fall from grace, performed by Janine Booth at Ealing TUC's International Women's Day celebration on 8 March 2018.
The marvellous Modern Minstrels sing Janine's lyrics to Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah, with a fabulous selection of appropriate images.
I peeled back the adverts and found
a beautiful town
Waiting at the bus stop
I stilled the rotating displays
and pasted timetables and useful information
in their place
I restored all the lamp posts
to their role as posts bearing lamps
rather than gallows
from which buy-me banners hang
- a rewrite of John Betjeman's The Subaltern's Love Song
Young Duncan H Dunn was the subaltern's son
Born then withdrawn when the courting was won
Conceived in the back of the subaltern's car
His dad had not planned on it going so far
by Donna How-I'm-Gonna-Cope-Come Summer
Sittin' here sweatin' my heart out waitin'
Waitin' for my temperature to fall
Tried about a thousand remedies lately
Want to bash my head on the wall
Ever wondered what Squeeze's Up The Junction might look like from the woman's point of view?
I never knew it was Gordon
The guy who came from Morden
His face was cute and handsome
So that's when we began some
Adventure most romantic
Impassioned snogging antics
He said I wasn't common
His chat-up lines were rotten
You were flirting with a racist in a cocktail bar
When I met you
I picked you up, I turned and you walked out on your wife
It really was quite easy to do
Then two months later on my racist texts were exposed
Embarrassing as fuck for you
But don't forget that UKIP put you where you are now
And they can put you back down too
