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.

Ode To Claire Rayner OBE 22 January 1931 – 12 October 2010

It is with a heavy heart, on the 12th of October
That the nation is told, Claire Rayner’s life is over.
Agony aunt to many, and a legend in her own right
She was a dedicated woman, and the world has lost a light.

Claire, was born in 1931, and died today, aged 79
Her career spanned over many years; gaining an OBE in that time.
That was for services for health issues, and she was rightly praised;
She originally trained as a nurse in London, where she was born and raised

Faced with challenges in her life, she remained strong as can be;
Working tirelessly through her illness, to promote the charity.
A Wife, a mother and an inspiration, my thoughts go to her family today;
She may be gone, but never forgotten, and in your hearts she’ll always stay.

    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!
