A COMICALLY SUPER SOCIETY
IRONY-MAN ?
The super-rich
bulk-buy galore.
Outside the supermarket
will sleep super-poor.
Laugh, the superhero
is comic-book for sure.

INTERNAL INVESTIGATIONS
Honest company ?
Now there's a thing.
Honest folk
are for the hiring.
Hirers though
aren't always as true.
Expose them,
find sacked are you.

AN UNDERGROUND POETRY PIECE
The magician was to put his hand
in the upturned top-hat,
while the jumpy rabbit inside
wouldn't have any of that.
It bolted along the lengthy tunnel
that was the big hat's top,
down to a poetry underworld
the rabbit was then to hop.
"Welcome to our Wonderland,"
said the magic poetry lines
that were written on the walls
of that shiny diamond mine.
But almost an eternity later
the rabbit just had to go,
and headed for the spotlight
like that in the stage magician's show.
Yet the grand circle of light
was the tunnel's very end come,
and the rabbit was to exit
to the loud applause of everyone.
The people were now fluffy bunnies...
what conjurer's trick ? What scheming ?
The rabbit had to pinch itself,
but the child Alice woke from her dreaming.

VAMPIRE VACATION
She was off to whitby
for the Gothic-Weekend,
said he'd sure be batty
not to go and attend.

The girl was hung up
as to her damned boyfriend,
he replied he'd lie low
over there in Gravesend !

YIN AND YANG
When one is up
another is down,
its never the same
the world around.

The opposites
are ever the law,
contradictions
like kiss and claw.

A TEESSIDE TRANSCENDER
The Transporter Bridge
doesn't take minds where
the Rainbow Bridge does.
To Asgard fine and fair.

THE DESPOTIC ROBOTICS ?
Paid not to work
when the robots come ?
Never to go earn
more than that sum ?

Never to protest
that benefit to protect,
or face robot soldiers
due to your disconnect ?

STATE OF THE HEADS ?
Politicians ? What a bunch.
Vacuous, vacant, out to lunch.
Drink the wine, eat the bread,
stuff withy something the empty head !

BARNSTORMERS
Old McDonald had a farm;
politicians stormed his barn.
The meeting was moo moo moo;
quack quack quack; though clucks too.

DUAL NATURED MAN
Two sides to one coin,
so minted are men.
Both sides as one joined.
Duality makes them.

THE RARE STAR
She was a star
but lost her shine.
No more a picture
to my frame of mind.

So as to empty space
became lost she
who reappears I find
in rare memory.
