Summer BBQ – July 13th

Summer Bbq – July 13th
Flame grilled
Trump Steak
With Mayo sauce -
Two for the price of
an air con
rictus smile -
Shaking on shady,
sweaty palmed
deals,
secured with
the spike of
a shish kebab skewer,
under the
plastic
fantastic
chequer covered
picnic
table –
Ribs
spare
picked clean and
thrown to the dogs
to gnaw
and chew over-
The fall out
to be
bagged up
in black sacks
and dumped -
Land fill
for our green and pleasant.

US President Donald Trump to visit the UK in July

Bex Tate, frustrated with the data driven education system, recently left behind her job as a Kindergarten teacher to spend time writing and pondering life. Writing poetry helps her to try and make sense of the world...as well as giving her the chance to rant a bit!!
