The MP for Flip-on-Sea

The streak of piss flipped
The trim switch this
MP for Flip-on-Sea for
The Party of Choked Progress
Fingered the food of thought
In the buffet of his bonce
In his constituency
And made himself a mess
Many more than once
He posted toasted dry cleaning bills
Through each door

Too lazy to knock upon
He sneered through pub windows
At those playing one downmanship
On his way the pharmacy for
Foreign bodies cures
And tablets pure as
Pure as driven swans
And lied about that too
And lied about it
Many more than once 

Orange Sauce

Withdraw a score n' Keep it peppered For the ducks round here Will keep it weathered Ever stone-faced sly Deny me pleasure But try it dry And with me Never

High-vis Dad

The parky bike
The high-vis dad
With his
Rough Trade bag
Organic growth
And childish time-lag
Beneath the weight
Of his own constraint
For Scalextric
Flintstones telly
Fish fingers beans
For his belly
For interactions only
And that
Be for him
The only actions
On his Beano
Dandy plate

Bots - A Tanka

The data needs now
Machine-gunning where there are
Cyclical sickle
Dreams that hammer the sleep of
Those who you can't figure how

Flaxen Klaxon

Across the
Key to the 
Flaxen klaxon 
Tin tin's
A certain red
A red that's hot
That cuts as locks
Hot through
Tin tin's
Snowy bits within

Save Me Gravy - A Tanka

The pious pie us
With custard hangovers mash
With liquor thicker
Than the tie-knots of auction
Corpses by Christie's vicar

Pound for pound

The person spits the
Person eight
Stones throw from there
The change
Never comes
The crater in
The mini
The sound
We cannot

Pickle This

A day to remember.
Pickle this
Freezing cold weather.
A custom
To preserve this onion
In Baltic jar or
Use for soup
That sits
That's klass.
One score n' eight
Ingredients used as
There's an island
That wants
The cream turned sour.
We're told,
Dill with it.
It's pickling hour.

Curtains - A Tanka

Cardsharps twitch in the
Hermitage practicing the
Darks arts of online
Gammon paper backing and
Putting rents up summat harsh

From these Spines, Aloof - A Book Title Cut-Up

The Moonstomp
is clean. 
the dream. 
Brilliant be the poems, 
on Alternative Street. 

Against the Mann
with the 
personal smile, 
these prison happenings
have an 
orange affair 
with the truth. 

As we tango
like penguins
in the darkness, 
a two-bob freedom
is best selected, 
from these spines,
