The lifeboat – poem

September 15, 2018 - 13:56 -- Admin

I am become a tablet

A pill to kill the enemy within

Out damn spot rages nightly

And every day

Where hope abandons hope

And grows again

A gain that walks better today

But not so well tomorrow

Tottering between pain and moving


Out damn sorrow and take with you

The filth that spews its way


Be gone, the tablet chants

And my mind enjoins the song

The barbed wire deepens – a poem

The barbed wire deepens

Twisting the torn,

Skin born of other things,

Of fear, 0Of hate,

Abuse mailed in bullets,

While geese step their way

Round the bodies

Of our living, and their dead


The night darkens day,

Infiltrates the future

Where spies gather us

For their uses

Sluices on the waterway

Of life

No fish, no fishing towns

No people with rods around
