Crikey

Poem By vince gullaci

Appluading
Yesterday's news with glee
The attention seekers
Club together
On the balcony
Above the mourning nation
As the long hearse
Slowly draws away.

Comments about Crikey

Bad news is good news for a surprising number! How do you explain it charitably? Very fine theme astonishingly concisely expressed. You've used fewer words than me! ! And the other two I read were shorter! I like your work. Not because it's short, but because it's bloody good! ! jim

as a butterfly

the honeyeaters
quarantine my garden
from other bird species

Mr.Megalomania

The world
is mine
to keep
now i'm buried
