I arrive

at the Houses of Parliament gate,


lies May's pointy, bedraggled face,

tongue bent into a U-bend,

licking the shit

of a monumental floater

left by Cameron;

Refusing to plunge

but too slippery

to unblock,


Between a shitty brush

or a shitter flush.

Part 1: Big bang




Something forged out of a massive nothing,

A singular density,

The beginning of time.

A universe, at once infinitesimally small

And infinitely dense,

Foretelling our seemingly thin grip on reality.

As far as the eye can see,

Beyond even light...

I am lord of the dance!

Cried Farage

as he waltzed into Strasbourg

and dragged Britain out.

I am the wide mouthed frog!

Cried Cameron,

lord of the flies,

mouth full of piggy.

I am the lord of the pies!

Cried BoJo,

scratching at porkies

in a world full of fibs.

I am irrelevant!

How many eppendorf tubes

have been sacrificed

in the pursuit

of understanding

the toxic


of plastic waste?

How many latex gloves,

thrown idly asunder?

Some wonder

the fish


in an acid sea

of toxic death.

Scientists in Norwich had been investigating ext...

What's a man to do, or think, or say?
Doesn't matter, whatever it is,
We'll put it down to privilege anyway.
Equality is coming, come what
The left is not right.

I sway broadly to the left despite
The prevailing wind. Slighted,
The wrongs of our forefat...

It's getting hot in here,
in the sky, under the collar,
chop a tree, make a dollar.
No doubt, some, rather
than standing firm would
be offended on behalf of the tree,
ignoring the wood,
ignorant of the roots
of this complex, leaf-littered mere.

Autumn is here,

As if it could get worse.

A country persuaded
that cuts to the poor
due to wrongs of the rich
would warrant a change.

As if it could get worse.

The country, poorer,
wages slashed,
what backlash?
More banker's cheques cashed.

As if it could get worse.

What backlash...

Religious or not,

 deep down

  we all yearn

   for something beyond

    the end not the end.


 in that
