Dictator
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Dining and wining in chalice and
unfathomable china,
her throat swallows gold –
Lady Midas – who sat on domes
and saw ages in faceless waters,
reaping soils of exhaustion
and breaking sacrifices, chewing egg shells
and lightning the night...

Look, there’s a yolk in her throat!

Leeches
by Frank Costabile

Make the grade, but pay a price
Walk the line with care
Seek reward, for effort spent
But leave some heart to spare 

Keep the fires burning
And aim to succeed
In temporarily satiating
The pigs that come to feed.

A Little List of Greetings
by James V Daniels

Merry Christmas one and all, a time for joy and cheer. So I made this little list of greetings, would you like to hear?

Merry Christmas Saudi, for you we bring new weapons. We hope you will enjoy them when you fire them on Yemen.

Merry Christmas EU, for you we bring an agreement (by the end of March). And if none, we'll extend the transition period, though we have no right to ask.

Merry Christmas Schools, for you we bring more funding. Though not quite as much as potholes, which, we thought you would find touching.

Merry Christmas MI5 for you we bring much data. But if nothing to hide you have nothing to fear, so tell THAT to all the haters.

Lies
by Heather McBride

govt system got you locked in a prison
with no vision
blindfolded ignorance
got you warped in a trance
people are like sheep with no shepherd
walking round with no direction
the govt is not showing all the cards
got the world believing politicians have hearts
meanwhile the world is at odds
pay no attention to the man behind a curtain

Government Poem
by James V Daniels

But like, we don't even need a government, is all I'm saying.
If all a government does is deregulate the companies and take way our freedoms- then our priorities need straitening.

And sure, they put police on our streets and pay for our schools. But those police have two jobs and the schools have no cash, and my friends are on zero hours contracts, they can't wait for their money back.
So there's a little something for you all... To think about.

But that's not the problem, more like an overture.
You see, the problem is that folks like you and me rarely turn out to be:
Fruit pickers; warehouse workers; shop fitters; joiners; carpenters; scaffolders; solicitors- wait!
That last one- maybe.
