Radical

#CYW #RadicalRed

They wanted to change the system

and united under a flag

led by men of learning

fighting wasn’t their bag

so instead they marched the streets

in order to reach a change

and workers shut the factories

till their voices were in range

The voices , sole , were low in noise

but soon became a crowd

till one day they reached the gates of power

and called out as one aloud

And the rulers , they had to listen

as the wheels of industry stopped

and the army weren’t getting their pay

so the walls defending them dropped

Funny Bloke

A response to a #Writeclub prompt

(poetry purists – it’s a San-san)

“funny bloke”

a poem from inky, based on page 16, line 16 of

Round Ireland with a Fridge“, by Tony Hawks.

He’d been brought in to warm up the crowd

before the main act began

The audience sat there – some bemused

while other’s shouted – beer fuelled – aloud

“bring on the band” – he wasn’t a fan

six minutes passed – it didn’t go fast

till the audience amused by comic pratfalls – reused

raised cheers from the assembled crowd

indeed they were amused

Inspired by the Salt & Pepper Design Team, i’ve been writing acrostics and poetry using some of their fab graphic fonts – I posted “Doggies” last week, so here’s something less canine, more feline

Kittens, an acrostic by Inky.

Stopped

#waterwheel #promptuarium

There was a time, where this mighty wheel

would turn the stones, that would crush the wheat

for the flour that made your morning bread

Today however, it’s taking a day off

for some clever person thought

chucking stones into a stream

was a good idea

and while the fish go another direction

along the river bank

the mill wheel sits there , waiting

waiting for the water to return

Red Arrow

#Acrostic #Model #Plane

Red Arrow Display Plane

Royal air force display team plane

engineered by the modellists

designed to fit together – without any glue

As things go – it was

Really easy to put together – snapping together

Red white and blue flag on the tailfin

Only cause for concern

When the plane falls from its perch – putting it back together

The Iceberg

#writeclub #challenge

Its floating in the sea

like an unseen Bazooka

Shadows casting over

bright blue water

Birds sing out to

their fishing friends below

Careful all –

Its squeaky bum time!

But out there in the cold

This mountain of ice wails –

I ONLY WANT A HUG
