Poetry Blogs (2013, resignation)
fallen from his
flock now flown,
one wing seemed
for flight no good,
the other useless
in aimless wander,
fallen from their
path well planned,
his stick seemed
where once was stronger,
held by a firmer

Iain Duncan Wots-his-face
has now resigned and left a space
in Cabinet. The explanation?
Tory party machinations.
But then again, perhaps the bloke
just had enough of pigs, and coke.

The child in his arms, such a precious gift,
her sweet little smile would make his heart lift.

his devotion to his daughter could not be denied....

had served their purpose,
sacrificed on the
gleaming altar of greed.
High ambition in this
glass and steel Babylon,
where His armies
were to take over the world.
Britannia slain but defiant
