I care not for some of the Human Race, They have a cruel deceitful face, Their ethics are a true disgrace, I care not for some of the Human Race. I care not for parts of the Human mind, It has a cruel, vicious streak I find, Which leaves a trail of death behind. I […]

Foot And Mouth Disease

The Rowan Tree, red berried, weeping, Leans toward the wind listening?. Heading the valley, waking — sleeping. The Farmer stands looking across his land, Seeing nothing, yet seeing all first hand, Remembering the waiting for the killer band. First the dreaded signs, then the Veterinary call, Tests, three days waiting for the results to fall. […]

Politicians hands outstretched, smiling Cheshire cat Grins, Unctionally. Spin Doctors gyrate their well rehearsed spins. Superiatively. Both now grinning wider, and spinning faster. Supersonically. Then merging together, before disappearing. Orifice-ally.

Laying in bed thinking, finally sleeping, Dreaming of refugees, hands outstretched, weeping. In lines of homeless, dispossessed humans. Broken bridges, buildings on fire, Homes destroyed, and worse broken bodies, and minds. Families split up, men folk marched off. To where? Sounds of gunfire, please God not that. Scenes at the border to shame the World. […]

Afghanistan Ladies

Pale blue robes cover head to toe, A body within, nothing must show. A man with a cane lashing out, No cry of pain, no angry shout. “Men are disciplined, Women are not, This the way they have to be taught.” Ladies in blue lashed by a cane, I cry for you and share your […]
