Traffic

Brushed by death today
Twice.
Metal boxes speeding
Too fast, too near me
Driven on by the wrong thoughts
Or expensive wanderings

Night Cafe

Egg and bacon sandwich
Dripping yolk and ketchup
Steaming tea from on old tin boiler
Condensation frosting the windows
Empty streets, lit by sulphur orange
Solace

Feigning

By Scott Bailey © 2018

Feign ambition
Feign happiness
Feign expertise
Until the day
It all comes true
Until one day
The realisation
That day
Will never come

Big Brother is Dead

George Orwell’s

1984

Showed us the nightmare vision of socialism gone to extremes

It didn’t come to pass.

Instead – we welcomed in something far more insidious.

Capitalism unmarked.

Welcome to

Mankind Limited

 

Welcome to the rebellion

Welcome to The Secret

Gone (Tetractys)

By Scott Bailey © 2014

Gone
From me
Innocence
But always close
Always in my heart that innocence lost
