Every Decreasing Circles*

Politics is for the Voters As much as the gloaters, Though, those who did nowt About the ol’ In or Out Really have no grounds to whinge at all, As they witness the nation’s potential Fall. Scenes unfolding of rowdy inglory; The nation awaiting the fate of a Tory. The broader picture marginally more complex, […]

Turns out we can prove anything with science From evolutionary genesis to rights of military defiance, The human drive for evidence A raison d’etre in our defence, Proving the pudding with vital consumption Tempered with a measure of righteous assumption, This, the way that History is born: Those who speak loudest leading the dawn While […]
