A Serious Note (senryu 19)


political hell
unrepairable damage
country to a halt 
I am working class 
rich politician don't care 
we've been forgotten 
purse is now empty
no bread and butter today 
there's no use crying 
Seven bills to pay 
should I sell one of my kids?
or sacrifice me?

    Nothing like a political poem or 4! Great stuff Teddy

    • Teddy.15

      Well, I have seen some very distressing things of late, I thought this might cheer you up! 🤣

    • orchidee

      Erm, a slightly different version there. I don't recall that version! heehee.
      But seriously, 'heat or eat' and things like that are no joke.
      You and I starting the next election campaign, as members of The Cabbage Party? I'm sure we'll win!
      We have Bozo, Coco, etc...... just now.

      • Teddy.15

        Good point dear orchi, as long as we have enough gin. lol 🤣

      • spilleronsheet

        The world over many played in hands of few…empty pockets and lots of desire…where are we going to? Though political but the situation is really dire…

        • Teddy.15

          We are all in deeply dark times dear Spills, Sri Lanka has no fuel left and nobody is offering to help them. 💖

        • Jerry Reynolds

          Well said, Teddy.
          Politics is hard to express in general, it is so local in nature. But you and Rubin have done a fine job.

          • Teddy.15

            My dear Jerry, we have a few here to.one is called berlusconi, the other Salvini. I guess they are everywhere. Sorry to make us all vexed today I'll try to find my satire for tomorrow.lol 💖

            LOL and the other lot don't know whether to have a shit, shave or a shampoo. This country needs a proper opposition. One that the people would vote for.

            P.S. did you know the RMT union has given over £89.000.00 to the labour MPs who joined the picket lines. So much for them supporting the working man. UK politics stink, all in it for themselves.

            • Teddy.15

              LOL I knew this would get you going, brilliant dusky LOL 😂💖

            • Paul Bell

              His body could feed a small country. We'll see how the by-elections go tomorrow. Any luck, he'll be sent to Rwanda.

              • Teddy.15

                What have you got against Rwanda? 🤣 Boris just wanted to send them to another war torn country to keep the brexit group happy he should be in jail no more waiting for tomorrow's 💖

                • Paul Bell

                  What have you got against jails. lol

                  Political hell- a very appropriate term. We are suffering the effects of the actions of these leaders. This is probably the situation of many countries.

                  • Teddy.15

                    Dear JudyStella 💖 yes it is in Europe and what I saw of trump in his time, biden just doesn't have the stamina to fix it all I suppose but yes we are all in kind of the same boat we need some fresh blood that has integrity and pride for what they believe is good for all, then we can all vote better. LoL 🤣 ah my winning speech is coming on. 💖

                    • JudyStella

                      Agreed! I am sick of the government. Hope to see change and revolution lead by a leader with a backbone😂yeah I don’t even vote tho I have the rights

                      • Goldfinch60

                        So very true Teddy.


                        • Teddy.15

                          Thank you dear Andy. 💖

                        • Poetic Dan

                          Loved this note and needed a laugh as the price of everything has really not helped my mental state, although I know others have less!
                          For those around me that have, are still swimming in their private pools and the rest of us left to just play the fool...

                          Now I must stop but so good to feel your wonderful vibes my friend.
                          Thanks for being you!

                          • Teddy.15

                            Dan so lovely to see you and yes thinking of you always, sounds like you are good in any case keep being strong my dear friend. 💖

                          • Distant View

                            Yes, we are stuck with an incompetent government, and yet, bungling Boris will not resign, and doesn't look like being deposed any time soon. Labour are still politically weak, and the Tories know that, so they think they can get away with murder! British politics are in the doldrums! A good satirical poem, Teddy!

                            • Teddy.15

                              Hello dear D.V so great to see you. Although I no longer live in the UK of course.its my home and I'm gutted to see all that's going wrong, I agree with what you say, if labour were also in better hands they would probably have been able to push the Tories out it's all a big mess. 💖
