July 2019 Collage Poem: It’s All Greek to Me
Boris lurks in clever Grecian lines
Pernod! Demos, oher!
I met her on Tinder, Medusa, she said she was Greek
Now I am stood here with a statue of Apollo
Bandaged babies, lepers and bikes
Refrain, refrain, rain
Boris Johnson is trashing
Davey’s wine bar,
Demis Roussos is singing ‘Do you
Think I’m sexy?’ to Angie and Dave
See the sea, let the wind blow
Crab rides rollercoaster to turn radioactive
Demis Roussos – a Greek Pavarotti
Swimming in the dirty sea
Ducking and diving from the viper’s bite
What if I told you
It’s always the right time
Would you save it?
And the middle class shelves of Waitrose
Will all be washed out to sea
How do I not like that falsetto voice?
