Two Fingers of Champagne

(honestly)
there is nothing political in this poem
as we are all in this together
so

I am happy to settle on the wealthiest enjoying
one hundred thousand pounds a year tax cut
while the nurse

made redundant
has her welfare 
cut.



For me the spark of inspiration can come from anywhere at any hour - from people watching to the things I hear and read even in the middle of the night (events must mull in my subconscious before outpouring).
