Poundland

entry picture

 

Where we used to live is a Tesco now

its aisles full of shoppers

 

We used to bathe and do our business in the bakery

make love among the pickles

 

You kicked me in the nuts at the pharmacy

I fell down floored beside the pain relief shelf

 

I collided with your sister by the half price stand

and rebounding landed here in this disavowed Poundland

To Remain

 

Look, I like having legal rights; to be a citizen not just a subject,
but I’m not without doubts about this great European project.
No, I don’t fear drowning in seas of asylum seekers some’d prefer out of my backyard

Fiscally revolting

 

(to the tune of 'coming round the mountain')

 

 

The Greek people they have had it up to here,

With those ‘haves’ that say these times must be austere.

Forbes’ list shows the same old picture

The poor pay up - the rich get richer

Publishing financial crimes without a fear.

 

Has the Parisian Republic gone berserk?

I mean, growth through spending... ...

Pursue Transparency

 

In veils of secrecy the captured states

Obscure the havens of the ultra-rich,

Who claim to hover in their global cloud;

Untouched, untaxable and out of reach.

 

They slip through loopholes spun, in legal webs,

By spider lawyers, lobbyists, - with bribes.

They loot our assets; dodge, evade and hide;

And multiply their influence round the globe.
