 ramblings and things

State Of The Union

Let's have an election
Mr Putin bravely said
Sadly any opponents
Seem to end up dead.
I want a democracy
Yet I'm accused of lying
But how can I help it if
Opponents keep on dying.

Over in Israel Mr Netanyahu
Seems to take full pride
As his sanctioned terrorists
Carry out their genocide.
They seem rather unwilling
To look at facts and learn
From that known old adage
A trod on worm will turn.

Over in America it appears
Democracy will take a thump
As masses mass to support
The apparently senile Trump.
The Champion of the West
Coming under world fire
For falling under the spell
Of a convicted fraud and liar

Our local ruling hypocrites
Intend  to raise their pay
As the necessity for food banks
Increases each passing day.
Sunak boasts thing are improving
But doesn't seem to understand
His was the party  in power
That brought chaos to this land.

Over the world people starve
As world temperature rise
Essential polar ice caps
Inexorably decrease in size.
Nobody really much cares
About the catastrophe ahead
Why worry about events due
Long  after they'll be dead.
