Homeward Bound……

AS the plumed waves rushed towards the shore,
under the gaze of the desolate moon,
the ghost ship sailed on one quest more
it’s path lit by the moonlights gloom.
Many long years they’d sailed the seas,
Done evil things they’d forever regret
ignored all their victims plaintive pleas,
until they were cursed to never forget.
For a htndred years they served their time,
kept from life, forgetting it’s pleasure,
no crumb could be eaten, water tasted like brine
only thus could they pay full measure.
They traversed the seas by starlit charts,
long gone worlds had died to light
the way to their final resting place,
The ghost crew would find peace tonight…….

Pay the Piper…….


Conservative and Lib Dem Pact









   Is there no limit to what you’ll do?      
                        Is there no morality at all to be found?
                        Is your decision Conservative Blue,                  
                        you’ll sell whatever to raise a quick pound                    
   Last time Maggie Thatcher sold all she could
                        the Utilities went, and she saw it was good,
                        She sold out the miners, small business’s too
                        but what the heck, that’s not important to you.
   The Fat Cat’s of Business are in total control
                        they keep to the shadows,  the Party Bankroll
                        they care not for who will be drowned in the mire
                        as the cuts are forced through,  put all to the fire.
   “Sell off the country,  sell Greenbelt land”
                        sell anything profitable for those in command
                        NO worries of the poor and forget the old
                        change the NHS, leave them out in the cold..            
    Sell off our Forests
…to  Private Concerns too
                        restrictions to us, we won’t walk free as we do,
                        no Country hikes, they’ve worked with such guile
                        give them an inch,  they’ll take the whole mile.        
    When will we learn, Politicians lack souls?           
                        they do things for profit and personal goals            
                        they’ll strip us bare to keep the country afloat,
                        when we finally sink, they’ll have their own boat.
