Neu! Post-Truth Poetics DAY FIFTY-NINE – Jo Gilbert

Doric Politics

Naebdy spikks
aboot politics
ah they want is a quick fix
watchin stuff on Netflix

Nae surprisin really
fan ye see
at orange faced wally
flappin his gums, on ih telly
makkin a feal o himsel on Twitter
it maks ma laugh
yet angry, twistet an bitter

Da get mi startit
on ih wifey May
mad Muggie – carbon copy
only in iss  ti feed ih rich
even mare
Blue passports
an Easter egg hunts
are mare important
than bairns lives
ti at Tory cunts

Mibbe ats fit wy
folk choose ti bide in
an hide, far awa
fae athing real
they dinna want ti feel
angry an powerless
so fur them, it’s easier
ti bide at heel
