Advertising Angst

Poem By Max Gatrell

I’d like to tip the band wagon of this irksome trend,
The advent of the hackneyed scribbler urging us to spend,
By using poetry to pander renders it terrene,
Profusion of these awful adverts aggravates my spleen,
Our House is now a brothel, it’s rotten to its roots,
Virgin Media made it thus, a haunt for prostitutes,
‘Way back when’ by association, it was a safe retreat,
Since being pimped to a corporation, Our House is now effete,
Am I inclined to buy my swine from a northern-gent?
Or do I choose to cleave my cheeks and fry them with intent?
What is it with these accents, are they pleasing, more sincere?
Does it seem as if when reading they squeeze out a little tear?
Over fondue I could dangle employees of Cathedral City,
Maybe peril due to melting could inspire dormant pity,
For their wretched rhyming scheme and dreary intonation,
Which to me is so prosaic, it reeks of defecation,
Ashamedly I’ll cite my sin hypocrisy’s a drab disease,
Despite the fact I hate their couplets, I adore Cathedral’s cheese.

Thoughts That Thwart My Sleep

Anon the leaves shall line the floor,
A mottle of uncertainty.
Nearer to winter it seems I am,
Farewell to happy seasons.

The Lamentation Of Doray

And as Doray began to speak,
A tear appeared upon his cheek,
His emerald eyes could not contain,
Those drops that fell like acid rain.

The Fisher Queen

I confess my life's a mess,
Because I'm on your hook,
The best alas I can expect,
Is the slightest look.

The Trophy

For me you were a Trophy,
A feature on my list.
A conquest I could brag about,
Whenever I got pissed.

Sharks Of Love

Much is said in cultivation,
Shallow words spent with seed.
Empty vows between the sheets,
Of course I love you baby.
