Piece Without Title and Three Verses – Written Monday 6th July 2020 (aged 45)

Piece Without Title and Three Verses

the illusions of this government
the nature of people
they believe in what they are told
self interest,
has firm grip and an even tighter hold

did you see them?
they were in the streets celebrating
like it was the end –
of one of those world wards
crowds of people
no common sense and scant laws

but what did it all mean
the government
with its no sense of the season
and little or no leadership
devoid as it is of responsibility or reason
people cheer
and wave their flags
who knows what it all means
ask those older women and those angry dads




James Garratt – Monday 6th July 2020
