Jumping up for a quick poem at this free gig at the Box Park, Shoreditch.
Mine, and occasionally others'.
I try to move from A to B
But I may have to wait and see
That bloke don't cause me jeopardy
'E'll burn my flamin' effigy
Hey chum, I'm not a popinjay
And I don't want no grief, OK?
A lemon opal fruit, ten p?
These queues are stressful, I want tea
You see that rubbish on TV?
Double your excess - why, chimpanzee?
ONLY YOU can save this kid
ONLY YOU and your three quid
- But think how many kids we'd save
- If all that unpaid tax were paid
A poem about the Curiosity rover detecting a methane burp - a possible indication of life - on Mars:
A methane burp
A gaseous gurgle
A bacterial belch of life suggestion
Surfacing from Mars' digestion
No little green men
No Clangers, no Borg
No rich man, no poor man struggling 'neath that rose sky
No sign of a lawman beating up the wrong guy

Myleene Klass and Griff Rhys Jones
Like living in enormous homes
But Griff Rhys Jones and Myleene Klass
Don't want to pay a mansion tax
If Labour wins they'll emigrate
They've helped me to at last locate
A decent reason to vote Labour -
Feck off and do us all a favour
One of Peter Pinkney's first decisions when he became RMT National President in 2013 was to ban members of the national executive (which included me at the time) from swearing in meetings ...
When Pinkney won the President
We knew he would be daring
We weren't expecting this one though -
He banned us fucking swearing!
