BBC Strike

It’s bonfire night and we have a BBC Strike;
Members of the NUJ, began their walk-out at midnight.
We are set to see disruption, even to their flagship shows
They say they have a contingency, so let’s see how it goes.

There were tensions over pensions, when this row first began
And now picket lines are being formed at sites across the land.
With some high profile players, including presenter Fiona Bruce
We wonder when the two sides will find a mutually beneficial truce.

X Factor Results Live Show Sunday Week Three

We’ve hit 8’clock and it’s X Factor results time;
The contestants kicked us off with a badly synched mime.
Luckily Mrs Cole’s performance was far better rehearsed
And it was lovely and sweet to see her shaking with nerves.

Michael Buble also performed, and the British ladies swooned
As we awaited the results, under the light of the moon.
But do you know, I think truly, that most ladies’ new goal
Is now to embody the dainty Cheryl Cole.

A well placed ad break followed, for Cheryl to re-dress
Before Dermot gave us the answer as to which acts were a success.
Cher, Aiden, Wagner then Katie went through
Then One Direction heard the news that they were safe too.

Rebecca then Belle Amie, that made 7 happy acts
And the eigth person through, was the talented Matt.
Tesco’s Mary was the tenth, closely followed by Paije;
So John and Treyc will now sing for survival on the stage.

The last two songs did nothing for me, my attention span gone
But it was no great surprise that the evictee was John.
Tonight Cheryl’s performance, was for me, the real treat;
So it’s over and out now, from me, till next week!

X Factor Live Show Week Three Poem

It’s Saturday night X Factor, so come on, let’s have it;

The first act of note, was Rebecca as Jessica Rabbit.

Then Matt Cardle hit the stage and all acts were eclipsed

As Britney’s, Hit Me One More Time, smoothly passed his lips.

Cher Lloyd had performed in the interim, but she doesn’t float my boat;

Perhaps I’m jaded by the incident, at judges’ houses, with her throat.

But anyway, I’m digressing now, I’m thoroughly enjoying the show

And I’d love to hear your thoughts on who you think is next to go!

The Spending Review

Oh dear, cried the politicians
We seem to be in debt
We’re going to make some cutbacks;
Let’s see what reaction we get.

We’ll shave a bit off the public sector
And then some more for good measure
Did you say you wanted to be taxed more?
Why thank you, it’s our pleasure.

We’re doing it for the country;
Debts mount into the trillions.
Some might get caught with their pants down
Showing faces of ruddy vermillion.

We’re doing what the banks might call
An extensive financial review.
Also known to those in the trade as
Extraction of money, from me and you.

We make no bones about it
The whole economy will be hit
But we’re on a rollercoaster
And we might do the double dip.

Today the decisions will be spoken.
The public wait for the commandments to be read.
Brace yourself Britain, for reality;
It all rests on the Chancellor’s head.

Chilean Miners Rescue

Chilean Miners Rescue – A Poem

Just after 7am this morning, there was boundless jubilation
As the fourth of the Chilean Miners, was freed from incarceration.
They braved a treacherous journey, to re-emerge from beneath;
Their families waiting proudly, their faces telling stories of relief.

The number of days they have been trapped, now totals sixty-nine
Which I imagine is not an ideal stay inside a claustrophobic mine.
There’s lots of talk of detachment, and post traumatic stress
But the fact that they are alive and well, should be counted as success.

This is absolutely epic, and a well-televised operation,
And we’ve had up-to-date press coverage, throughout the entire duration.
The world is following closely as these miners’ rescue is shown
And whilst we wait for them all to be freed, I want to wish them a safe journey home.

X Factor Live Shows Begin

I wrote poems about the X Factor, last year, on a whim

So I’m doing it once more, as the live shows begin.

I’m thrilled that it’s back, and it’s hit the ground running

With the contestants and judges, the entertainment is stunning.

Now the selection of the artists, was particularly hard

So this year each section has been allowed a wildcard.

Twelve originally went through, now we have sixteen,

Eager and talented acts, ready to fulfill their dreams.

It is two and half hours of absolute pleasure

Add a generous dose of Dermot; just for good measure.

All singing and dancing, with lasers and lights;

But which two acts will have their cards marked, by the end of the night?

Happy Birthday John Lennon 9th October

John Lennon and Yoko Ono

All around the world today, people will remember

The one and only John Lennon, one of the Beatles founding members.

On the 8th of December 1980, his life was sadly over

After being born, just 40 years before on the 9th of October.

He was born and raised in Liverpool, and failed all his GCE’s

But it didn’t affect the superstar, he would ultimately be.

So after nearly finishing a course at Liverpool School of Art

His amazing ride to stardom, could officially now start.

The screaming teens of the 60’s could not control themselves

And whatever the Beatles produced, simply went flying off the shelves.

Lennon stayed with the band until a dispute in 1969

And then went on to a solo career, with the most classic songs of all time.

Imagine is the very best, iconic and one that most will know

It was written well before I was born, but I still know how it goes.

That was released in ’71, and was instrumental in his life

And now ImaginePeace is the message from Yoko, his beloved wife.

It would have been his 70th birthday, and in honour of her late husband John

She’s spreading the word of peace, for those who’ve been loved and are now gone.

She’s relighting the Imagine Peace Tower to evoke a collective expression

So that from the sadness that was losing John, we all can take a lesson.

British Ticket Wins 113 Euromillions

euromillionsAfter today, the 8th of October, two thousand and ten

One person’s life in Britain, will never be the same again.

And that’s because something happened, which I think is rather nice;

They won the Euromillions, all one hundred and thirteen, to be precise.

The ticket was bought in Britain, that’s all that we know

And there’s no guarantee, that in public, they will ever show.

It might not be that hard to spot, if they suddenly buy a personal jet

I’m sure I’m not the only one wondering, if it’s anyone I have ever met?

So let me wish them the very best with their bucket of brand new wealth

And as they crack open the Cristal champagne, let’s all toast to their good health!
