A Vote That Counts

Labour are red
The Tories are blue
Vote however you like
For the fact that holds true
Is that tomorrow; next week
When the new PM’s in
It will still be the case
That you can still win
If you don’t blame the outcome
On a whole load of rot
But focus instead
On the skills that you’ve got
To focus, work hard
With resolve and with might
For the gold that you seek
Is intrinsic; out of sight
Being contained in each one of us
For better or bad
So dig deep and discover
With a heart that is glad
To not see the red, and neither the blue
But the spectrum inside you
And make that work for you
For politicians will come
And then they will go
And no matter how much
Each manifesto
Makes great promises to match
Your wishes and wills
Or tries to deliver
Through political frills
Labour will stay red
The Tories will stay blue
But the rainbow that gives most
Will be always in you

Milliband’s Owls For All

The promise is an owl, they said
A bird of prey that could
Save each and every one for sure
And get them out the wood

Yet give each wisdom, give them flight
With wings to be so free
Nocturnal sight through darker times
And there you might just see

A bird that would surpass the hoot
That flapped all red and blue
An owl for everyone, they said
Rhetoric or tweettwoo?

Oh Dear Dear Mr Cameron

Oh dear dear Mr Cameron
You are a silly boy
For it appears you have thrown out
Of pram your best best toy
Those voters who could in their mass
Vote for you – yes it’s true!
The minions who have been hit
By the government and you

For all the welfare changes that
You deem to be reforms
My dear dear Mr Cameron
I fear they’re far from norm
You’ve penalised the poor folk and
Hit disability
And now you’re putting children in
More stark real poverty

You’ve chastised middle classes and
You’ve raped the country’s heart
Yet have you paid your duty and
Really played your part?
You’ve battered all the teachers though
I’m sure you think you’ve not
For they don’t know now where they stand
When some have lost the plot!

You’ve vexed the old age pensioners
You’ve killed the NHS
And Europe?  Well let’s not go there
For you’ll say it’s labour – yes?
Yet dear dear Mr Cameron
Although you might not see
It’s not that people do not want
To act responsibly

For most are just and upright
Partners in a social way
Are happy to pay out and help
The country day on day
To be part of this union
To play their role in life
But dear dear Mr Cameron
Stop twisting in the knife!

Teacher MOTS’s

So the latest idea proffered
Will test teachers to see
If they’re really up to scratch and
Can pass an MOT
To see which ones are worthy to
Educate our child
With more certification and
Stress to drive them wild

Now some are naturally aghast
And others still dismayed
For would re-registration find
Those who’ve gone astray
Or find old school educators
Who still prefer the cane
Those who put children though the mills
Those charlatans insane

And what about those teachers who
Sink in scholastic brooks
Would it help and give them succour
Or simply overlook?
In essence would it really work
Or just be an expense
Costing big bucks; lots of money
To make no difference?
