King & Queens

(An old aide memoir from my school-days finally put down on paper)

Willie, Willie, Henry John,
Stephen, Henry, Richard One
Henry, Edward One Two Three,
Richard the second & Henry One V
York and Lancaster go to war,
Henry deposed by Edward Four.
Edward Five was never crowned,
Richard the Third was murdered found.
Henry, Henry he put his wives to death,
Edward, Mary, Elizabeth,
James then Charles who lost his head,
(Olivier Cromwell ruled instead)
And when the civil War was through
Came Charles the second and JamieTwo.
William and Mary of the orange clan
Quickly followed by good Queen Anne.
Georges One Two Three and Four
William and Victorior
Edward, George and Edward Eight
Then George the Sixth ‘cos he abdicates.

Protest!


To scared to live too broke to die
Ever wonder the reason why ?
We came to listen to what they said,
-A thousand bodies laying dead
Never question who they may be
We’re supposed to live in a democracy.
Politicians ask you for their vote
On poverty and homelessness they gloat
Seek some asylum ? …we’re already here
This is country so full of fear.

Wait the morning comes around
Quickly now, without a sound
To break the dawn of bright new world
Banners flying, peace unfurled
Crime is rampant, streets of hate
Only death can steal your fate
Never walk alone the streets of pain
Cash disappearing down the drain
Of the governments ever deepening well
Welcome; to the gates to hell

Joined At The Hip

 Shoehorned into No ten
Tories back in Maggies den
Siamese twins to wield the axe
Cutting jobs & raising tax
Hand in hand they smile & grin
"What a mess they left the country in
"We'll sort it out it won't  be pretty
In fact there's nothing in the kitty."

New ideas new politics
The country's ills they can fix
Let the rich grow even more
To keep them warm we'll burn the poor!
Gordon promised a Fair for all
Thrilling rides & crashing falls
So many castles built on sand
Now we're into Cleggoland,
