Political Pisspots

Political Pisspots

A Poem by Phill Oz O'fee

Political Pisspots




Funny how sudden elections

Generate verbal defecation

From every political party

Confound every generation


Translucent paper promises

In painted toilet roll supply

Flush through letterboxes

Like a deep diuretic alkali


Political pisspots overflow

Streaming our social media

Polluting hearts and minds

Like toxin-laden Ascaridia


There are never any winners

In this pursuit to the summit

Most fall victims to bad press

And their popularity plummets


Left or right or middle ground

Discreet genre rarely mattered

Paper bags full of excrement

Hit fans and all are splattered


Next time you cross the box

Exercise immense discretion

For our rationale mistakes

Lets despots gain accession

as an american that's descended from the UK and (gasp) French philosophies of democracy, i must admit i love some good trash talking! ad hominems! it doesn't matter who's up for election, they're all bad cronies! but we all agree this system is best, lol. as an american i'm ignorant of everything that's happening outside my country so i don't know what election you're having. a new queen maybe? humbug, to quote the germans, it's all kaput! and sartre is probably still nauseous!

oi and cheers from across the pond, mate! now lets pound some session beers! unless you like us to still threaten to throw that bergamot oil tea in the ocean again! (secretly, that's my favorite though). forget the politricks, we're still brothers in whatever war this senselessly is!

The UK isn't the only place you can find political piss pots! We got a super abundance of them here in the USA . . . and it's that season already for us as the Dem's primary battles clog the news with one stupid statement after another . . . not that Mr. Trump hasn't said things equally dumb. Between election times we have 2, 4, or 6 years of campaigning! Nothing is ever said or done without getting re-elected as the motivation. The rise and fall of the Western world seems to be upon us . . . it was nice while it lasted!!!

' Translucent paper promises - In painted toilet roll supply - Flush through letterboxes - Like a deep
diuretic alkali ' Well put, great writing and thoughts to ponder.

Right, Phill, got the message almost at once: you don't care for today's cynical, self-important and generally inadequate policies, sum decision making or varying displays of pomposity right and left!

Reading on, you swipe at most faces of global party goings-on, each stanza portraying one or other view of the so.called whole. Should I be smiling at the way you've worded your thoughts
(fact, or not). What happens, what the figures are when they're called up, down and around the UK will depend on the Electorate. There has to be union not ridicule sooner than soon.

Let's or Less despots gain accession...

sadly it is the season and your poem a sharp commentary ... one has more responsibility to be an enlightened voter that we care to admit let alone shoulder such responsibility ... the news is not the news any more .. Walter Cronkite, Dave Garroway, Willian Buckley ... all have died ..inflamatory rhetoric and slanted "facts" peddled now as "news" ... thank goodness for live coverage and actual hard copy transcripts ... there is hope .. i have to believe it Phil :{

ps. love the pics ... gotta laugh for cryin' eh!?

and here we are the day after....and still the mud slinging continues ever after the votes are counted.
just more turmoil....rivalries...agendas.

and the people who have elected the candidates come in last as usual.
