Poetry Thursday 32 - Topical humour!

At this time, that is political party conference season, I thought I would share the poem below. I'm afraid it says more about my politics but what the hell!

I Know My Place!


Class

Like a chinless canker worm
Pervading society in all parts
Keeping the working classes down
Taking hope from hopeful hearts

Education a fair system for all?
Health care pervades society?
But better services can be bought
Acquired with fees paid and propriety

No dropped aitches or ‘ee-by-gums’
In the towering groves of academe
But titled honourables and their chums
Keeping it in the family it would seem

But in the world the worm can turn
Beware flattened vowel and furrowed brow
History teaches but can they learn
Revolution has drivers they must allow

A 21st Century version!


Scifaiku

Photons from beyond the grave

Distant, spooky force
Entangle a photon pair
Bert's ice bridge of time
©David L Atkinson October 2012

The 'Bert' is reference to Albert Einstein who described the interrelationship between photons as 'spooky action at a distance'
