Poem of the day — Repelled Proposition

Repelled proposition

 

Gruel twisted, pan tanned, risk shot truck load of groupie hang down and outs

Crushed in the push for porridge, a meal for rubber bouncing cheques

Paper signed in recognition for carved in stone mistakes

Breathing tubes of mashed up murdered brothers

Cracked bells bashed with glints of magazine gunshot

Everyone should have a heart or bust the banks meagre margins

Percentage a quote, a choked decision made on a whim and hand shake

Way off counting on caring

Blast away bones and flesh, for king and country

Or a flag

We are flagging

Flag stones are crumbling

The way to the pit is a light switch away
