May-be-A-B… Just is (a poem, starter…tbc)

maybeAB~-~J

Just is

in-justice

and seems

nothing to be done

to be sure it’s public int’rest

yet the newsreels just won’t run.

This is our bleeding country,

majority just as poor

as back then in the decades

since the Thatcher years abhorred.

Modern days are not enlightened

in these Dark Ages whence we strive

from manipulated mainstreams

truths from the Media to derive.

Apologies for absence! This poem starter has been inspired by the mindboggling situation of UK human rights abuses, the media manipulations/mediablackout and circumstances around political imprisonment of a Nottingham woman, a crucial witness to a necessary child abuse inquiry. #freemelanieshaw

 

May-be-A-B … Impossible (a poem)

maybeAB~-~I

Impossible by nature

Implausible in dreams

Ineffable with language

Mysterious intrigue –

What is it, what’s it look like?

Does it make a sound?

Perhaps it has an odour –

Is it air-borne or ground bound?

Whyever can’t I see it,

whatever it is there –

is it just imagination

or invisible is where?

#May-be-A-B … Everything (a verse)

maybeAB~-~E

Everything but the kitchen sink

Escaped my mind and my mind will not think

It’s getting late here by ten to twelve

And try as I might to dig deep and delve

I’d be wasting my time alike in neutral gear

And in writing while driving I’d best end it here.

N.B. I am sitting in a chair at home while writing this poem, not driving a vehicle unless considering the blog as the vehicle. I just felt it might be necessary to expound on that fact a little enough to be hopefully clear to the reader.

#May-be-A-B … Cutting (a verse)

maybeAB~-~C

Cutting it fine with a couplet in rhyme is not quite my cup of tea perhaps

but a carafe of good coffee with a plate of banoffee ice cream and a free play of craps

might create an occasion of casual celebration and cause chuckl’ation and cheer

and coincidentally these words were not meant to be, and they happen to be closing here.
