Once Upon a Downing Street


Notice of absence from Neville

For anyone that might be interested, I fly to Lisbon Portugal later today and then hop on board a mighty big ship (at least I hope it is) then sail around the Mediterranean for a few days calling at Madeira, the Canaries etc etc .. then up to Cape Verde for a few more .. and then across the Atlantic to Brazil calling at eight different ports .. If all goes according to plan, I should be in Rio de Janeiro for my birthday mid December .. Please note, this has nothing to do with work, it's very selfishly, just for me .. I plan to be back around the 15th December .. Stay safe and write on .. Kindest of Regards & All Good Things, Neville 🤍

Once Upon a Downing Street


I simply cannot emphasise

or describe ..

Just how very, very much

indeed I now

revel, in his long protracted


overdue demise ..

I truly want

to see him standing, beaten

shame faced

and magnificently humbled

in a filthy gutter

somewhere exposed where

he now quite

rightfully resides ..

Begging pardon and perhaps

a filthy crust ..

Shame-faced and revealed ..

But then,

nothing is straightforward

these days, is it ..

Everything is bent, screwed

or crooked  

and in so many fucking ways ..

Truth does not

exist in Downing Street today ..

    I hope you don't think (I'm sure you don't) politicians are better elsewhere, Neville. I can assure you... and furthermore, he may rightfully reside in that gutter, but will he? The likes of them have plenty of property and dosh hidden away somewhere.....
    Your write, however feels right, and I'm pretty sure you will get much empathy and support.

        YES WHOLLY AGREED -- - seemingly everywhere governmental care is non-existent and deserves no better -than being revealed and brought to public shame.............x

        • Neville

          You put it so much better than I ever could ... I guess that's because you are a lady .. x

        • Paul Bell

          Boris will be partying to those words. Actually, Boris could start a war in his last weeks and days in office. In saying that, the replacements don't inspire much either.

          • Neville

            I concur sir ......................... N

          • Bella Shepard

            Do you think we can find a spot in that filthy gutter for an ex-president that I know? He and Boris seem to get along well, but then they're cut from the same cloth. Come to think of it, a vast number of them seem to appeal to the same tailor. Maybe this guy should start investigating who is clientele is. Great write my friend!

            • Neville

              Hey, you are absolutely right my friend, the one is juxtaposed precisely against the other .. maybe we should form a cult Bella : )

              • Bella Shepard

                A cult sounds good, but you'll have to name it, something subliminal since we don't want to frighten the opposition.

                  I'm on it, and will get back to ya 🙂

                • Dove

                  I wish the best for the Country.. All over the World there is such things .. You penned it so well.

                  Out I say…

                  • Neville

                    Thank you so much Dove ....................... Neville
