Doggerel Dave

‘We must get the balance right’ – politicians’ favourite call:

However please disclose the location of your fulcrum;

No? my support for your position will be S F all.

No vote from me you clowns - what makes you think I am that dumb?

  • Comment from author about the poem: Please get real – it’s political decisions on which the quality of your life depends. A problem occurs – intervention required; number possible options one to ten. Only options four to five considered….. Trouble is the folks who need this won’t click here…

    That's a good one for the soapbox in the public square. If only people would listen and act accordingly.

    • Doggerel Dave

      No soapbox for me, Rik - prefer to be more subversive. I attempt to convert poets .......... but don't tell anyone....

      • crypticbard

        Ah, yeahr... mum's the word then!

        Yep, we have Bozo, Coco, Thicko, etc..... as some newspapers call them.
        One is in cuckoo land in a celebrity show on telly at the moment.

          You've lost me orchi - please elucidate.

            It's the names that some newspapers give to some of our politicians in the UK.

            Just walk away from it all mate. Don't even give them your time and energy. Let them play their little games.They are insignificant.

              ‘Wish I could, Sax, but unfortunately I cannot. Over the course of a fairly long life I’ve witnessed how parliament (composed of politicians) can stuff up people’s lives. I now am in the fortunate position where it would be very hard for their decisions to affect me (unless war breaks out) but that has not always been the case, and I have a long memory…

              Good write, Dave.
              I fear the fulcrum is up their bums.

              • Doggerel Dave

                Good value response, Jerry, deeper than a superficial read might suspect - I'll pay that one.

                They only think of what they themselves want and don't care about anybody else.
                As I have said many times: "How do you know when a politician is lying?" "There lips move!"

                  I think you are right, Andy - But Wot is to be dun?

                • sorenbarrett

                  When ever there are more than one person there will be politics and a tyrany or the majority or of the minority. Can't please everyone they say. Self interest is a terrible ruler.

                  This is no poetry, but totally useless words,
                  The poet doesn't know how to write poems,
                  He seems to have no poetry sense at all,
                  His words clearly prove his empty mind?
