“Are We Nearly There Yet!” 2

Had problems with the layout of my last post so here’s a revamped version:

 

Q.  Why are limericks like buses?
A.  Sometimes they come in threes!

 

Replying to back-seat cries,
our driver shouts Yes, soon! and sighs –
until passing just then
that old signpost again,
everyone thought he was wise.

 

Righto! (said the leader one day)
out of lockdown let’s make our way –
unless cases rise
to scary new highs,
ending the urge to make hay!

 

Rambling wild was our style
on explorings mile after mile –
up to half-way,
thrills ruled the day –
everything homeward was mild.

Stop Press: Government Minister has Marie Antoinette Moment in Car Crash Interview

Until you mentioned this just now,
not one word has reached my ears –
a gap between the rich and poor as
wide as in Charles Dickens’ years? –
a golden chance, of course, for each to
reach out for equality –
everyone a millionaire, then, just like you and me!

Making Do

Sleep soundly, fellow citizen, for cake is coming.
Until then, just be grateful for your daily bread.
Building our brighter future begins next week.
Satisfy yourself, for now, with what you have.
Towards a better world we’re nearly ready to set sail.
If we think you’ll rock the boat, we’ll leave you on the shore.
Tomorrow there’ll be bluebirds up above, just wait and see.
Unicorns to follow. Pictures posted. Please enjoy.
There are the rainbows, their golden promise now fading in the sun.
Embroidered samplers still urge courage upon shadowy walls within.

Caustic Coda

Three acrostics for the price of one … or might they be read as one poem, perhaps?

Attitudes that sell the news
corrode the ties that bind –
if common cause is put on pause
divisions melt the mind.

Apart we fizzle out and soon
can only raise a grin
if reading stuff of folk worse off,
downgraded by their sin.

Anaesthetised by otherness,
can anybody feel
it could still be togetherness
dissolved and now unreal?
