One Armed Plumber

Out of the morning

Chaos struck

Like a one armed plumber

Run amok,

You won’t know why

You won’t know when

Without warning

Flies the phantom wren,

Life is funny

Life is kind

Beware the dark side

It will catch you blind.

Clicking

All you could hear

Was the clicking

Of the mouse,

With the sound

Turned down

In that quiet

Old house,

And you wondered where

The fingers were going,

What the eyes could see,

What the mind was thinking,

When all you could hear

Was the clicking

Of the mouse.

Pay Your Taxes

The echoes over cocktails

From the Isle Of Man

To Panama and all of

The tax havens in between,

Shout, sneer and scream,

Back to work assholes,

Hit your low paying jobs

And pay all of your bloody taxes,

It’s none of your god dammed business

What we the wealthy are doing with money

We have sucked from you.
