Poetry – The Last Post

The Last Post

They are playing the last post

As Cummings flees the ship.

After wreaking havoc,

Leaving us to clear up the shit.

The creepy little toad

Has been Johnson’s right-hand man

Now the country’s in the hands

Of the laziest man in the land.

The puppet master stalks away

Clutching his cardboard box.

Slinking out of Whitehall

Like a stinking, mangy fox.

The buffoon is left behind

A bewildered, bedraggled clown.

The captain of the ship

As the country’s going down.

Coming up with lying slogans to win elections was the slimy bastard’s trade. Having engineered results he set about creating mayhem. He drove all the reasonable men away creating the most extreme party of right-wingers the country has ever seen. His only interest was securing a no-deal Brexit at any costs. An extreme nationalist of the worst hue.

Governing was not important. There was a big enough majority to do anything.

Covid-19 was of no concern. Brexit was the only thing. He steered a hard line without compromise.

Johnson, the puppet, was just grateful to be in power. He didn’t care. Just left him to it. As he purged and lied.

Johnson’s strings were pulled and he was too lazy to be bothered. He was prevented from talking because he did not know what was going on and kept going off message. Cummings let him recite.

He deviously purged and pulled the crew to pieces. He placed his own people everywhere. It was a nationalist coup. The government, the civil service and the media were in his thrall while the blundered buffoon presided over chaos and disorder, bullying his way through.

Biden was his downfall.

Now, in lockdown, with 51,000 dead, with the worst hit economy in the G7, no deal with the USA, a swathe of broken promises, with Brexit looming, Cummings slinks away and the clown is left to pick up the pieces.

I wonder how long he will last?

The Corona Diaries – Day 73

I can feel the whole lockdown beginning to relax. The number of new cases and deaths are both coming down. There is a different feel around. People are out, cars are about. Up here they are social distancing – not sure that is the case everywhere though!

That slimy Cummings still has not resigned. The pressure is building!! This is the lying, conniving mastermind behind Brexit who deviously spent his time spinning, lying and spreading propaganda. He’s the one who has boosted Johnson into being elevated above his competence! He needs to go!

One rule for everybody!!! No elitist spin!!

Today a friend of mine dropped in for a socially distanced walk. That was great – a good time to have a good natter. I’ve missed that.

We walked up to the top of my hill (I have now claimed it). Very pleasant day again!

I have had kindle report problems with the covers of both my new books – Star and Green. Seemingly the writing is wrong on the cover is wrong. Not sure how I can put that right. It’s an automatic process? We’ll see. Nothing in life is straightforward.

I’ve been working on my new Ron Forsythe website and blog. Hoping to get it up and running tomorrow. An important step for me. I’m useless at these things.

I’ve been playing a lot of Velvet Underground and Nico. I find her voice so haunting.

A bit of a mixed day!!

Still not ill – so you all stay safe!!

Poetry – Bre aki ng the Rules

Bre aki ng the Rules


People are struggling –

Risking their lives,

Following the rules,

While those who wrote them

Flout them,

Treating us like fools.


If you have symptoms

You must stay indoors!

You have to do as you’re told!

Unless you’re called Cummings,

Then you can travel the country

And visit relatives who are old.


If you break the rules

You’ll be arrested and fined.

But if you break the rules you wrote

You don’t even have to resign.

Poetry – The Cummings and Goings

Cummings and Goings


Everyone deserves to be

Treated fairly.

One rule for you

Another for me.

You stay indoors.

I’ll travel the country.


The toings and froings.

The lyings and knowings.

The cheatings and crowings.

The Cummings and goings.
