Nowhere to run...

Sometimes the inevitable happens
pens and inks like it's nobody's business
business has moved to the back alleys now
nowhere to run nowhere to hide no more

No more money left to feed her habit
a bit on the side or up the alley
Leyland Lill wouldn't recognise her now
nowhere to run nowhere to hide no more

Moreen  likes to figure everything out
outside it's raining but rain won't stop play
Players 'r' us give us yer money now
nowhere to run nowhere to hide no more

Oregano basil and black pepper
perhaps the inedible happened

Society Vs Community

We've talked about the self
congratulatory society before
but what about community
and wheels within wheels

and who ever mentions the 
blokes who made the spokes
and told the jokes that kept
industry moving all those years

and the women that did/do two 
jobs came/come home and bring 
up the kids then put their husbands
dinner on the table and still do

I don't see blue plaques hiding the 
cracks on many terraced houses
there's one or two too few if you're not
on TV you won't have one will you

It's National Poetry Day 2013

For National Poetry Day 2013

They said I’ve got to write a sestina
I said my name is Andy Sewina
Would you like a bite of my banana
How long till you get some new pyjama
Is that a felt hat or a fedora
Did you sail into the new marina

I once met a mermaid called Marina
I thought I’d tell you in this sestina
That I always wear an old fedora
She said is your name Andy Sewina
Lemontina do you wear pyjama
Oh but please please don’t drive me banana

Joey likes to eat yellow banana
When he pedalo to the marina
Everybody loves his blue pyjama
When he goes siesta with sestina
He dreams that he is Andy Sewina
Wearing a big coat and a fedora

You really can’t ignore a fedora
Even a squishy squashy banana
Won’t make you into Andy Sewina
So don’t go try to swim the marina
Who said it’s complicated sestina
It’s so easy peasey in pyjama

Do the drama school supply pyjama
I’ll bring a pair under my fedora
It’s time for us to sing my sestina
Ba ba ba bana bana banana
Ma ma ma mamma ma ma marina
Yeah lemontina Andy Sewina

Dance like fiesta Andy Sewina
Do Sucu sucu Cuba pyjama
Discotina down to the marina
Don’t forget to don your old fedora
Ba ba ba bana bana banana
Singer ringer dinger my sestina

Dreamer dreamer sestina pyjama
Andy Sewina with his fedora
Slip don’t trip banana skin marina

Here's the original post: Sewina Sestina.
