Shroud

I wouldn’t be seen dead in a shroud.

Whisper it aloud.

No one has ever come back to say what its like on the other side, people who died.

Explain that, religious freaks, of whatever persuasion.

I will explain it now on this occasion.

No, I am not dead.

I am alive instead.

Firstly, if you don’t understand quantum mechanics my explanation will be beyond you, over your head.

Okay, you don’t, I’ll say something else instead.

Count to infinity and you’re half way there.

Eternity is everywhere.

If Heaven is above your head try Hell instead.

You know you’re dead when you look in the mirror and see nothing there.

Only air.

Why do skulls grin?

Where will I begin?

Do they see the joke?

Sorry I spoke.

Okay, you then, be the first.

Come back and tell us the worst.

Or best, as the case may be.

Say it on TV.

Save The World

If I wrote the perfect poem to save the world would you read it?

If I gave you a million pounds would you need it?

Would you thank me for it before you put it in the bank?

I don’t expect much of you, to be frank.

People everywhere breathe air.

Some wear masks, pollution doesn’t care.

Some say things are getting better, some say worse.

It’s a bit of both, here comes your hearse.

Who will save the world from us, from each other?

Are you leaving it to me and my brother?

Or another?

Surprise

Nothing would surprise you now, convention is out the window anyhow.

Moderation appears dead, extremism is here instead.

Mad is sane and sane is mad, bad is good and good is bad.

Or so they say and so they act.

Now there’s no such thing as fact.

Logic and reason are no more, anger rules from shore to shore.

When love is hate and hate is love who believes in God above?

Well not many, that’s for sure, we live on and eat manure.

Lies are truth and truth is lies much to a wise man’s surprise.

What next, will war be declared peace?

Oh sanity, may your tears cease.

Jew Murder

Why? Anne Frank, must you die?

Christ too was a Jew.

That’s telling you.

May we die of natural causes.

Moses made lawses.

Said to come from someone else, believe it or not.

Life is all you’ve got.

Do not preach hate, don’t normalise.

May we realise.

Hatred kills the killer too.

I speak to you.

Oh bitter heart, let love start.

You may be reluctant to swallow a tablet, a pill.

The purpose is to cure, not kill.

Said someone on a hill.

A line to stop people in their tracks.

Don’t shoot people in their backs.

A Sane Voice

Where?

In the air.

Who is all wrong, who is alright?

No one as far as I can see, I can’t see at night.

Turn on the light.

Who, me?

Wait and see.

I stumble, walk into things, I’m not a cat.

They have better eyesight, that’s that.

So apparently around the corner lies doom.

Meanwhile I relax in my living room.

Friends die or are unobtainable on the phone.

Is anybody home?

Not me, I’m out you see.

In a café.

What would a sane voice say?

Nailed

Nail the Devil to a cross.

Is he any loss?

Do you give a toss?

Does rhetoric make you sick or do the trick?

Here comes the good guy in a white hat, that’s that.

Bad guys fall down, put on the thorny crown.

When you do I’ll follow you.

Should I be calm or give a damn?

Let’s not be cruel, let’s be kind screams the Devil as the nails go in, I’ve changed my mind.

Tough luck, too late, the biter bit.

How do you like it?

Don’t spit.

That’s it.

Or should we forget and forgive?

Live and let live?

What about you?

You too?
