A Pimple on the Lip of Time (Scribbles from Lockdown )

 

 

1.

Five A. M. Scooby snacks fever chills

Pockets Warhol   beads his brain.

 

2.

 

The hollow blow of ghost trains  and a salmon toned sun candles the sky with sickly light .

 

3.

 

On  the goggle- box little gods

pop sacred testaments

 

4.

 

And  a thong of cherry pink blossoms crown empty streets

 

Billionaire tax exiles  have applied for

Universal Credit

 

5.

 

The  glitter of cleaners, nurses,  teachers, carers ,and doctors shall shoulder the cost

A fault  line  splinters between the haves and have nots

 

Oh, believers don’t ya remember

everyone’s as equal as the teeth of a

comb?

 

We’re all the same now 

 

6.

 

Tricksters radiate

 

Eat cow shit !   Drink three litres of pink Himalayan salt water   ! Soften  those purse lips  with gold milk

Get high or die!

Is 95% of  your life a lie ?

The parasitic belch of the hoarders

leave us with wine -dark faces

 

7.

 

Doom : Muttering scriptures at a Big Fat  Pink Moon

Oh, believers can you see

the blood of the innocents pistol the arms of the  weeping  money tree

 

8.

 

After April rains, a screen of colonized

smiles try to stagger past the wheeze of death 

 

9.

 

Truth is buried in law and data

We’re all begging Lady Luck for a long sweet  deep kiss

Those that survive

Keep the sequins of hope alive …

 

10.

“Where are you?” They  cry

“Purgatory”  He sighs

As the circular plague of Time

nooses the skull of his mind .
