Poster (Originally Untitled) – Written Tuesday 2nd April 2013 (Aged 38)


another picture share
another poster…
but you have suckled –
on the easy pig of life
you have found a, ‘disability’
a reason for,
why it did not go right
now you bang the drum
for one and all
but like the rest,
the size of your care remains small
you talk about systems
and drop political terminology
precisely into conversation
like the asprin,
into the watered glass
and your words dissolve
but not with such ease
amd they do nothing for our headache
the collective push to our knees
you have picked a bench
but the wrong park
and the wrong defence
you have milked the system
how will you make any difference?

James Garratt – Tuesday 2nd April 2013
