Silver Linings

Written on the day that the Conservatives won the 2015 UK General Election:

A search for silver lining
Is a needle-haystack quest
Fear grows and hope declining
Greed wins and stuff the rest 
McVey and Farage splendid fall
But barely dulls the pain 
The silverest lining of them all:
We live to fight again

Pedestal Nor Pity

I am not "inspirational"
I need neither pedestal nor pity
Why put barriers in my path
Then call me "inspirational" for getting over them?
I am your equal not your mascot
I want rights not awards
I am not "inspirational"
I am disabled
By crap like this.
