Poetry Thursday 127 - Scottish Independence

Two offerings this week, one in response to a prompt and the second to the current fuss over the Scottish vote for independence.

A Scottish Sonnet

A Caledonian satellite state,
part of the union for four hundred years.
Tired of being thought as second rate,
but will departing generate tears?

The parent government has lost its way
allowing upstarts to go for alone.
Ordinary people will have their say
the outcome as yet still remains unknown.

Sad that it should have arrived at this place.
Establishment’s drives causing division.
More care was needed for the northern race,
people do not respond to derision.

Voting NO leading to devolution.
Voting YES generates revolution.

It's a perfect day to start something new! Here's how: #PromptMonday 

1. Write a poem, story, script, Haiku, tweet, song - whatever you like - using this picture prompt as inspiration.

2. Add it to your website, blog, Facebook page, Twitter etc, and post a link to it as a comment under the picture.

3. Like your favourite stories!



Like the grains of sand
Time slips gently through fingers

as money from banks.
