Season's greetings23.12.2020 poetry
i was out beside the football pitches
next to the railway lines
two kids ahead were cycling fast
away from mum's confines...
they slowed their speed as they neared me
the first - a girl - piped up:
"happy christmas!" and smiled so wide
i felt my heart fill up
her brother next called out the same
i surely should reply
"you must be soft you silly kids
it's all a con, run by
"ruling elites, grasping white men
capitalists so mean
dead eyed tories, daily mail hacks
and worst of all - the queen!"
i put them straight and carried on
towards their loving mum
"nice kids" i said and grinned at her
"hope your christmas is fun!"
