Poetry – Unseen

Unseen

Unseen on the drifting breeze

                The scent of death from a common sneeze.

Isolating from our trusted friends.

                Gouging a wound that never mends.

A situation so badly managed,

                Leaving a crater as big as any war.

With damage to the economy

                Threatening to leave us forever poor.

Opher – 21.7.2021

I find it incredibly depressing to see how the country has suffered under the twin impact of Covid and Brexit as this disastrous government has overtly channelled huge sums of money to its wealthy benefactors while decimating public services and ordinary people.

All this nonsense about levelling up as they gaily award multimillion pound contracts to their friends.

All these lies about a prosperous future and Global Britain as they ferret away the spoils into their bank accounts, tie us up with red tape, decimate trade, throw away jobs, take away our job opportunities abroad while telling us how great this oven-ready disaster really is.

Now we can look forward to the decades of austerity as average Joe Soap picks up the bill for these years of Tory lies, sleaze and incompetence.

Our mental health is suffering.

Brexit – The Incompetence of Johnson laid bare by Milliband

Facebook

The sad thing is that we are all living with the failure and incompetence of this fool! He’s led us into a complete mess with Europe and an ongoing complete cock-up over Covid-19. He’s needlessly killed tens of thousands and thrown working people into endless austerity.

But loads of Tories have made a fortune out of both. That’s all they care about.

Dawn Butler – thrown out of Parliament for telling the truth!! Boris Johnson is a liar!

It is incredible that a member of parliament can be thrown out for telling the truth while the Prime Minister is simply allowed to continue telling lies. Something wrong with the system!!!

Poetry – Enough is Enough

Enough is Enough

Enough is enough,

It all has a limit.

You can take so much

And can no longer grin it.

The tide will turn

The revolution comes

Whether through the ballot box

Or through the roar of guns.

The cognitive beliefs are breaking down. We no longer trust our politicians. Our leaders are fools. We have lost our faith. We believe they do not represent us. They represent the wealthy.

There are two societies. One lives inside the other. One has so much and the other has what’s left – as little as is necessary.

There is a fury building.

Change is coming.

Poetry – Robbing

Robbing

Robbing from the schools

Robbing from the poor

Robbing from the nurses

Wicked to the core!

There’s a big hole where all our money went. It’s a big hole created by reckless greed. It’s a big hole dug out with bonuses and fat-cat pay packets. It’s a big hole that they are filling in with nurses, teachers, police, soldiers, social workers and the down and out!

I know what I’d like to shove in that hole!

Political Spin – This is Funny!

Thanks Graham for sending it through! Dominic Cummings and Trump would have been proud!!

No matter what side of the political fence you’re on, THIS is FUNNY and VERY telling! It just all depends on how you look at the same things. 

Judy Rudd, an amateur genealogy researcher in south east Queensland, was doing some personal work on her own family tree. She discovered that ex-Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s great-great uncle, Remus Rudd, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Melbourne in 1889.

Both Judy and Kevin Rudd share this common ancestor. 

The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the gallows at the Melbourne Jail. 

On the back of the picture Judy obtained during her research is this inscription: 

‘Remus Rudd horse thief, sent to Melbourne Jail 1885, escaped 1887, robbed the Melbourne-Geelong train six times. 

Caught by Victoria Police Force, convicted and hanged in 1889.’ 

So Judy recently e-mailed ex-Prime Minister Rudd for information about their great-great uncle, Remus Rudd. 

Believe it or not, Kevin Rudd’s staff sent back the following for her genealogy research: 

“Remus Rudd was famous in Victoria during the mid to late 1800s.

His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Melbourne-Geelong Railroad… 

Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to government service, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. 

In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the Victoria Police Force.

In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honour when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed.” 

NOW That’s how it’s done, Folks!

That’s real POLITICAL SPIN.

The Suppression of voter registration.

Under the guise of ensuring validity they are bringing in measures that they know will disenfranchise millions of the poorer voters. They believe this will hit Labour more than them.

It is the same tactics being used by the Republicans to suppress voter registration by black and poor white communities.

Poetry – A Cosmic Shrug

A Cosmic Shrug

As our green Earth

Delights in life’s birth

Basking in perpetual sun

With warmth and light for everyone

Might finally become aware

Of the parasite lurking there

And with a shrug of lava and ash

Rids itself of this foul rash.

If only the planet was alive and conscious of the life that it had given birth to.

If only it became aware of the mess that we humans are making of the world and decided to take action.

If only………..
