God's Question

Does a lie has feet or walk 
Only liars have more than two 
Don't listen to a lie as a joke 
Then will help lies to grow 

 

God will ask; why do you lie? 
So get ready for God's punishment. 
Me, you, them, surely will die 
Should keep ready for last statement 

 

Get back soon to the early pureness 
And stop cheating creatures
Just in case you look for happiness 
Be f...

Liar, liar, pants on fire!

Preamble: my contribution to this week's Rhymers' theme "fire".

 

Wouldn’t it be easier to recognise a liar

If caught telling porkies, their pants really caught fire?

As a warped form of justice, it would be rather fun

To see a guilty con man get singed around the bum.

The value of honesty would rapidly be learned

If every untruth told led to buttocks getting burned.

The Rattlers

Some givers give and rattle cans

to show us all their do-good plans

but not just they do what they do

in truth the rattlers are the few

 

Whilst others can portray a word

with actions done no thanks incurred

the truly kind who seek no praise

nor broadcast all their saintly ways 

 

Could it be who feel the need

to self profess their absent greed

are hollow in som...

Mirage

 Mirage

 

Beyond these indifferent walls

lies a second carapace,

pierced by small, green eyes

in a shimmering face.

It is not my own,

but lies are truths for actors;

they bandage wounds

when the liars rebel

while fleeing, open-mouthed,

from their savage selves.

Come the Revolution

Come the revolution

there’ll be bullet holes in the wall

and stains of brains that mattered

but didn't matter to us all

 

We’ll fly our flags

and burn the rich

and sing our songs

and burn the rich

and right their wrongs

and burn the rich

and take their wealth

and launder it

and to the poor 

might give a bit

but they wont know 

how much of it

we’ll...

Unattended Rally

entry picture

Strident

as if naked,

somehow humiliating

a soul bared.

 

Spat out

on sawdust floors,

toward splintered feet

and bleeding ears.

 

Un-thought-through

revolution

comes riding

across an angry tongue

 

Welcomed,

embraced  

by bedraggled sheeple

bleating allegiance

 

unto the new unchallenged word.

 

Come 

take refuge

PoLieTics - NaPoWriMo Day 2

We're all in this together,

we're here to represent you.

We will protect the NHS,

pensions, public services, free speech,

the right to protest, journalistic independence

and repair the economy.

 

But we must keep money

we NEED money.

Generators will not work without capital,

the magnetic pulse of the world will cease

and the crust shall become me...
