A Dance Around the May Poll

**

She wants to take hold of

our human rights,

and squeeze them in her 

lacquered fist–but really

this tourniquet of spite

from a resentful headmistress

dishing out the daily blame

in school assembly,

is nothing but a despot’s

distraction technique to

cover up her own past failings,

now returning to haunt,

like a fox finding its way back

to a pungent den.

And as her devoted husband,

in his role as Accessory-in-Chief,

sources a necklace to

match her latest statement,

his hand is hovering

over a death’s head pendant,

nestling in the pit 

of a casket lined with lead.
