Help Me Escape The Gloom!

January 21, 2017
IDIOT

“Der englischer Idiot?

I am trying to escape horrible world news! Help!

 

U  n  h  a  p  p  y   L  i  t  t  e  r  -  P  i  c  k  e  r  !

 

Picking up the local poo

Ginnel is our local loo

Paper chase, scratch-card and bill

‘Guess I’ve really had my fill?

 

Dull the sky and sad my mood

Lots of bread: it’s pigeon food!

Garden, even got a rat

Named it Boris, “just like that”!

 

Trump is grinning from the screen

Planning something foul and mean?

P’rhaps that’s Boris on his head?

“Thank you, neighbours, gulls are fed!”

 

Cabinet of millionaires

“Sharing all our woes and cares”?

‘Pick another fag-pack up

Beer cans and a plastic cup!

 

Friends are leaving Wand’rers’ club

Walk the coast, straight to the pub?

Someone’s sprayed some sticky glue

Grinning at me, awful blue!

 

“Daily Mail” abandoned…. shame?

Brexit “head”line rather tame?

Man is angry: “Sun’s sold out!”

“Read the Guardian, if in doubt!

 

“Thank you!”, ‘left me bags of crap

‘Like to give them all a “Zap”

Flower pot, I’ll put it on

Whist’ling lovely German song! (“Fledermaus”)

 

Garden, ‘hear a blackbird sing

‘Least we have one “happy thing”!

I’m admiring brand-new gate

Spring soon coming, ‘cannot wait!

 

Swarm of starlings wakes me up

Whisky in my Bullish cup   (New club?)

“Yiamas!”, news to break the gloom

From my darkest Brexit tomb!  Amen xxxx
