Poetry – Coalition 2010 – John Phillips

Another John Phillips poem from Shorts and Shots:

Coalition 2010

 

A clanging gong.

Bong!

Caring Conservatism.

Bong!

The Big Society.

Bong!

Hard-working families.

Bong!

All in it together.

Bong!

 

 

Georgie

 

Grubby little piglet

Snuffling in his trough.

Wants to eat up everything

And still can’t get enough.

 

 

 

Clegged

 

Signed a pledge

With empty talking.

Sold his soul

He’s Dead Man Walking.

I'd like to hear from you...
