Just Desserts

You’ve heard of Cinderella and
Her stepmother from hell
And the Queen in Snow White’s story
Who sincerely was not swell
And the witch that in the wardrobe
Had a country full of ice
Well have you met the latest one
Who isn’t very nice?

She’s dressed in the apparel
Of evil Disney ‘bitch’
And upsets everybody
With her tongue just like an itch
Or toxic social irritant
Quite ignorant at best
Eclipsing sun most days it seems
A parasitic pest

With lack of true humanity
And absence of what’s kind
Less voiding any empathy
No sugar on her mind
A woman of opinion and
A mouth the size of Mars
Just shame that she cannot be capped
And locked up in a jar

But doubtless as in all good tales
Antagonist will go
For like the rest she’ll have her time
And then as story flows
She’ll meet her end in tune with how
She’s lived and all that hurt
Will hopefully come back and bite
To give her just desserts

Fryday

I’ve heard it said it’s Fryday
A day traditionally
When fish is said to be the choice
Of food that’s served for tea

All wrapped up in white paper
And served with deep fried chips
A battered cod and mushy peas
To make you lick your lips

So head down to your chippy
And give your cook a rest
Where Fish and Chips for ‘Fryday’s’ tea
Promises to be the best!

Be Sure Your Sins Will Find You Out

Be sure your sins will find you out
Your words be shown to be
Dishonourable; full of deceit
Like wood from rotten tree

The wire that will just trip you up
The noose around your neck
The shade in which you’re forced to lurk
The outlaw in the deck

The darkness where no light can shine
The cave in which you hide
The tones of black and dingy grey
And murkiness inside

And then when all is said and done
And judgement day arrives
Be sure the rod of justice will
Determine who survives

The stick that will beat out the truth
The rhythm and the rhyme
As radiance will expel your ways
To last the test of time

Be Like A Butterfly

Be like a butterfly
Wings outstretched
Taking to the wind
Fluttering aerodynamically
Intent on love
With wings of an angel

The World Needs Fewer Boundaries

The world needs fewer borders
Yet more autonomy
Where each can live a life of peace
And walk on earth for free

Where jurisdiction doesn’t stop
The liberty of those
Who do not seek to maim and kill
And work hard with their foes

Resolved with strength and harmony
Respect responsibly
For the world needs fewer borders
And buy-in to unity

Fatigue

Tiredness, exhaustion, pure fatigue
Call it what you may
Consuming waking moments
Where night spins through the day

Where lids are weighted heavy
And matchsticks fail to prop
Those eyes open save sound of sleep
With dreams and rest full stop
