On The Island

I’ve come to that

Place in time

Where everything I need

Is here,

To be sure

We have our share

Of wingnuts and psychos,

But we know

Who they are,

We can be careful,

And yes we work our way

Through the weather

Wondering when the

Super Quake will hit,

But near the mouth

Of a river on The Island,

Everything I need is here.

Tit And Wit

 

Is it human nature

To slam the door

In opportunity’s face,

Or are we so fucking

Brainwashed that we

Don’t know any better,

What’s with the Brexit

Re-vote petition?

Come on Brits

Get your thumbs

Out of your asses,

By a stroke of luck

You have created

The chance to run

Your own show,

Re-kindle your wit,

Overcome the

Malnourished addiction

To the EU tit.

Strawberry Moons

Strawberry moons

On a summer solstice,

Few see three

Some make two,

Sea ladies and teal

The feel of forty-eight,

 Sixty-seven and sixteen

Who knows about

Thirty-five or sixty-six,

And yes,

I’m thinking about you

On this strawberry moon

On the summer solstice.
