Self Promotion – Written October 2017 (Aged 42)

Self Promotion

fuck the lot of them
they only care about themselves
right or left,
who cares?
it seems to be, it is all self promotion
and it leaves me scared
fuck the lot of them
they are scrabbling around to be the best
to signal their greatness
hoping we will not notice
the heap of their own fake mess
people on the right,
well they are truly a waste
people on the left,
well they are easily pushing people away
with an alarming haste
do as i say, not as i do
fuck the lot of them
and you know what, that feels just about true




James Garratt – October 2017
