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, […]

Protesterone*

If women took to the streets to protest,Sporting balaclavas and yellow vests,Journalists (by default, likely male)Would doubtless spin some amazing taleAbout fluorescent lemon being this season’s hue-accompanied by jibes about enhancing the view…Not all, but some- with constructed authority:Enough to impinge on assembled sorority.Not that women with purpose are likely to care.We also serve by […]
