November 2018 Collage Poem: Cheshire Housewives

entry picture


Cheshire housewife buys her Hereafter Insurance,

Works hard for nativity with port and gin

Our truth is, success means excess.


Then lies were common in family life

Waiting, hiding, broken, when when true

As your eyes sparkle through Mona Lisa smiles

And lies of untruth spoken words


Housewife with her gin

And tonic gives Santa a good



Heavy Mona Lisa eyes of a forgotten child.


Deck the halls and pass the sherry –

Women shriek from shattered rooms in the city

Burning them alive

Until there was nothing left

And only their words remained.

Santa parks his sledge
leaving Cheshire set last
now to enjoy giving
the very last present
might take him a while!
