Democracy died in the Senate chamber
When Supreme Court justice was never heard
Through a guileless force of legal obstruction.
Respect for law fell like old holiday garland.
A complacent nation did not demur,
Thinking true fascism could not recur,
Power transferred to a political poseur.
A complacent nation watched it’s legal destruction
And Democracy died.
They quickly forgot what they ...

Would or wouldn’t,
what does it matter when you are
President of the United States of America?
My god, what a farce of wordplay
or is farcical per se?

In a warehouse, in a cage a child sits
Clinging to her only comfort a blanket of foil
And whilst we all recoil
at the horror on display
Theresa May declares although it’s not ok
She will wait and chat in her special friend’s ear.... only when he is here
Whilst umbilical cords of family ties
Are severed bleeding out amid cries ..............................

There Are No Angels Here
Scraping around the vipers nest,
flaming swords and thrusting spear,
black spiders scuttle to the feast
but there are no angels here.
The dragon crawls into their veins,
hallucinogenic ecstasy or fear.
The demon bares his fangs to bite
and still there are no angels here.
The first-born rounded up and caged,
harvesting the mother...

Smashing the Nazi Eagle statue in Mauthausen Concentration Camp in Austria

We get our news in headlines and trending quotes
Despotic Tyrants hack computers to sway our votes
Egomaniacs trump their worth from their ivory towers
Politicians line their pockets with money that is ours
Whilst the fat cat bankers and the Global Corporation
Ruin our economies and sell our personal information
It seems the Arab Spring has sprung and broken
And Twits and...

I’m a snowflake mate
if you like
in a blizzard
that will white out
your false politics
stop your momentum
as we drift
and in an avalanche
bury you forever
I’m a snowflake mate
whether you like it or not

Let's unite in peace and make a plan:
a wily plan of mutual respect
to counteract the hatred in this man.
Let's do everything he won't expect!
We won't let goads and bigotry divide us
- let's evoke what World War II has taught us.
Don't let's patronise - let women guide us
when he slights our mothers, sisters, daughters.
And when he flays the vulnerable with derision
let's answer bac...

Hey Mr President
so what ya gonna do
All the stories
about you Mr Trump
you want to hump
you want to dump
The federal agents
you want to bump

You appear to
be so mean
I hope it was all
to get your way
work hard every day...

Don't give that man your tears today
Though it's dark now you'll find a way
Now is the time to laugh, sing and create
Throw the bile back at his tangerine face
I call on the punks, the poets, the artists, the revolutionaries and the visionaries, don't let the spark be snuffed out in vain
Come together and show him how you'll make yourself great again

Across the globe
Even in the heart of Chicago with supporters
Chanting “nigger go home.”
Followed soon by the lynch mob and the hanging tree
Welcome back America it’s 1963
Donald Trump’s smelt
Like a poison gas in the air
It’s the Mexicans the Muslims even your wife
“I’m just saying what’s on your mind and giving you a gun (license) to take them out”
