August 2019 Collage Poem - 'Washed Out to Sea'
Hypnotic Methodist Tingling
A sea of souls awaiting slaughter for freedom
Mermaid, just say no
On a darksome day we skipped to death
Marked by a felt-tipped pen
There is sadness, but not without hope
Samuel Bamford is protesting
In Hong Kong
Filming on his smart phone, filming,
Sharing, filming, sharing. Hoping it
Won’t be edited out, won’t be his last call
No connection e-mail sent
Lost at sea
Cut to the bone – poetry
Poignant weeps for its fullest form
On the day of discovery of father’s secret wife
Do mermaids like cake?
Or do they like playing jazz music
With a heavy metal guitarist?
You can set it out to sea but it won’t go away
Men like matchsticks burn easily
Swan Vesta announce their new slogan!
Weep for dead children
Across the globe, across the centuries
Many different voices merge into one
