Black Lives Matter!


No matter the colour of your skin,
The religion you believe in,
Your gender sex or who you love,
No-one has the right to attack your life.
***
PeskyPoetry may be based in the UK,
And the PeskyPoet may be a white male,
But he lives in an attacked minority being Gay,
He stands with you every step of the way.
***
Don’t let some orange buffoon take your freedom,
Fight for what is right and what you believe in,
Stand as one against this injustice,
Stand together in this hour.
***
Black lives matter,
Not just as a gimmick,
Not just for an election,
Not just for the few,
Black Lives are human too.
***
Black lives are part of the human family,
One big tapestry,
You wouldn’t hurt your own family,
Would you?
***
Sorry for my ramblings,
The news today has been saddening,
Anger boiled through my veins,
And I had to write my feelings.
***
PeskyPoetry will go dark tonight,
No poems, no posts, this is only right.
Black lives matter!
I stand with you!

Covhypocrite


We’ve all heard of Covidiot,
The one that wouldn’t stay,
The suggested two meters away.
***
Well I give you Covhypocrite,
The one who couldn’t stay,
Home when they told us to.
***
Some people are a stain,
On the boxers of politics,
And should be lost in the wash.
***
But some stains are strong,
Like our recent Covhypocrite,
And require a long cycle.
***
Some Covhypocrites were humble,
And fell on their sward,
While others just cycle on.
***
Not caring for the damage,
They have done,
Or how it looks to everyone.
***
But a Covhypocrite,
Is just another form,
Of Covidiot.

2019 Christmas Countdown 11: Who Politicised Christmas


Who the hell politicised Christmas,
A time that supposed to be fun,
No one wants to think about politics,
When they are doing the Christmas run,
But given the importance of this vote,
Please don’t forget to go out,
And cast you wishes whatever they may be,
Tomorrow when the vote comes about.

Illegal Love Of 1947


I sit in my cell,
Thinking about my sin,
Wondering what I have done,
Thinking about him,
I sit on my own.
***
I stand by the window,
Thinking what is love really,
Wondering what could have been done,
Thinking what is reality,
I stand by myself.
***
I love a man,
Thinking what is wrong,
Wondering what society has done,
Thinking why love is gone,
I love on my own.

Alternative Facts


We live in a time,
Filled with opinion not fact,
Filled with fantasy not news,
Where WordPress depresses,
And claims to be views.
***
We are closer to war,
Believing alternative facts,
Believing alternative news,
The rumour mill,
And the next daily sleuth.
***
Where are we going,
When alternative news becomes fact,
When alternative fact becomes news,
Are we lining our destruction,
Pulling the pin, lightning the fuse.
***
Is it not our right,
To believe alternative facts,
To believe alternative news,
Spreading our world,
Sharing our views.
***
Rights have responsibility,
Like teaching real facts,
Like dispelling fake news,
So be responsible and teach,
But not just your views.

Lest We Forget


Lest we forget the guns all stopped firing,
Lest we forget the drums all stopped banging,
Lest we forget the bells strike eleven,
Lest we forget the guys up in heaven,
Lest we forget all the lives that were lost,
Lest we forget all the shock that it caused,
Lest we forget the pain and the suffering,
Lest we forget the blood and the pain,
Lest we forget the poppy and it’s meaning,
Lest we forget the cause of it all,
Lest we forget this armistice day.
