THE FINAL POEM HAS A STRONG SWEAR WORD
The Man Speaker
Here I am behind the mic looking at you with total fright.
My sphincter is tightening so hard, I feel my balls may blow apart.
There’s more to life as you know of course
But at this very moment it’s all getting worse.
The more I speak the less you enjoy
This repeating of words that are simply a ploy.
Don’t be disheartened for there is an end
To all the speeches that bore you again, and again and again.
Is it cooked?
I once saw a sausage that rolled on its side
It was all pink and purple, and red besides.
I ate that poor sausage with such a delight
It jumped up and down at my very first bite.
Nice sausage it was with tomato sauce
But not long after I suffered the curse.
If you don’t cook poor sausage all the way through
You end up in hospital trying to poo.
The Death Scene
Return to the sky my beloved Marie
Return to the sky for now you are free.
“She’s dead”, cried the padre with some delight
“She’s dead poor people, so stop the fight”.
“She’s dead”, he said with the sign of the cross
“She’s dead, I say, but no great lose”.
Cry a River
The rivers, the rivers are all drying up
Without our rivers, we’re going to be fucked up.
It’s overpopulation that’s stuffing us up
Stop making people cause our rivers, are drying up.
