5th November 2007-PARODY

so pure

whenever i stop to take notice

parody is easy to relish


another late train departs as i

remain fastened to this bench on platform 6

wondering if the spiralling price of oil will affect

living standards for the poor in my oil rich isles

relatives complain they are

unable to protect themselves any more

a former prime minister proclaims

time for each man to own a gun

lawyers protest the conditions on remand yard

queen’s counsel retained at enormous state

expense for the scoring of political advantage

engineered class partition, identified as racial conflict

how pure is bottled pure spring water?

excerpt from the anthology

collected poetry & essays 1977-2007
due in November 2007
