Rhyming Polemics

Brexit Blues

Brexit, Brexit from May to December

Brexit scheming is all I remember

Productivity rising, trade is flat-lining

A time for cheering or a time for crying.

Brexit, Brexit from Monday to Sunday

Brexit plotting for a pumped-up payday

Opportunities opening, trade door slamming

The predictions are rosy, the forecasts are damning.

Shooting in the US of A

I知 shooting from the hip

I知 shooting with red hot lead

I知 shooting at the passers-by

I知 shooting till they池e dead.

I知 shooting from the rooftop

I知 shooting 粗m in their beds

I知 shooting up my local school

I知 aiming for their heads.

Monument for Margaret Thatcher

They致e been talking about a statue for Mrs Thatcher

Remember her they called her both the Iron Lady and the school milk snatcher

Remember her she said this lady isn稚 for turning

Hold on a moment, is that the sickening smell of something burning?

She痴 the one who said there is no such thing as Society.

遷ust balance the books, hard work and sobriety

Remember her she ordered the destruction of the Belgrano as it was turning

Just a second, is that the sickening smell of conscript sailors burning?

Ping Philosophy

Pick up a bat if you see it

Have a quick game if you feel it

Take on the world if you dare it

If the ball comes your way then just ping it

If you池e feeling anxious and alienated just ping it

If you池e saddened by the state of the world just swing it

If you feel your youth slipping away then just wing it

Because Ping England痴 in town so just sing and be in it.

Ping at the park and Ping at the school

Ping in the office up to 11 as a rule

Ping on your way home with your bat as your tool

Play with your mates or any old fool.

I致e been reading Yuval Harari痴 Homo Deus- every line

And it痴 got me thinking and a fretting about the future of mankind

I致e been thinking that maybe we humans have truly passed our prime

And that Artificial intelligence is going to leave us humans far behind.

Algorithms clogging up my brain

Algorithms monitoring my pain

Algorithms calculating gain

Algorithms trying to keep me sane.

My computer is a wonder - it is far smarter than you and I

It computes my bio-rhythms at the blinking of an eye

It whips me at the chess board no matter how I try

And it痴 even taken to predicting the very day I die.
