Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love A & B ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

 

Brian & I both work in the Public Sector ! I in HEALTH and Brian

in EDUCATION. Our jobs are secure and adequately paid but we

never receive a bonus. Both these sectors need increased funding

to remain free & viable at the point of Service. There are now fees

for University Education on a *Pay back loan system*  BREXIT may

lead to more Nationalisation (Energy ~ Transport ~ Water etc) if we

get a LABOUR (SOCIALIST) GOVERNMENT !  Watch this Space ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™

    Nice to see U.K. described as a socialist state for once. It really pee's me off when ignorant young lefties describe U.K. as a capitalist state.

    Your piece today is laid out like an educational chart which is both entertaining and clever.

      Thanks DA for your very perceptive and encouraging comments. YES since the last Century the UK has been a *Socialist State* and when we have left Europe (which was not my choice because I expect to live another 50 years) I think we should bring TRANSPORT & ENERGY etc back into the Public sector for the BENEFIT of ALL. There is talk in the Papers today of KING BORIS just favouring the ELITE !
      As far as the structure of the poem is concerned it is a technique we were taught at School ! To present *General Information* in the form of a BLANK VERSE (each line the same or a similar meter) ACROSTIC. It give a set of DATA a very neat and readable format. The Challenge (to ones vocabulary) is also writing it within the constraints of an ACROSTIC ! If it has 14 lines I raise its status to an Acrostic Sonnet ! My Poem tomorrow will be a Mirror Shape Poem in the form of an HOUR GLASS ! Poetic FORM & FUNCTION is INFINITE !

      Blessings & Peace & JOY
      Yours BRIAN ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

        THANKS UNCLE ANDY ~ PLEASED YOU ENJOYED THE PRESENTATION ! Straught Bananas are easy but YELLOW on MPS is very dim ! Curved Bananas (banned by the EU) are more difficult !

        I used to work for the MOD as an analytical chemist, I worked in the laboratory in Chatham Dockyard. If a tourist passed the dockyard they would often ask the Dockyard Police on the gates:
        "How many people work in there?"
        the normal answer was:
        "Oh, about half of them!"

        When I worked there it was over 5000.
