Blood pressure

I didn’t sign the declaration
and I didn’t
after due and careful
consideration
which is legalese for,
I tossed it in the bin.

We’ve all seen the writing on the wall
uninformed gibberish
misspelt rubbish

youth!
send ’em down the mines
oh wait
Thatcher closed them,
send ’em to sea
oh wait
no fuckin’ navy
and less of an army since
Napoleons days.

I turn sour
like last weeks milk
a proper grumpy cat
and
I don’t like that
at all

perhaps I should take to writing
on the wall,

#Killjoy was here
