Thieves – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Photos: I apologise for ruining your moment with this but … left to right (no pun intended) Scott Morrison former PM of Australia; Donald Trump former president of the US; Boris Johnson caretaker PM of UK for three months having resigned as leader of the Tory Party. Found at Leaders who were self-focussed, ignorant, inflated, no moral compass, fatuous and power focussed, money hungry.

“Each has been graceless.” Prof. Mark Kenny


You chop jaw,
truth mangling pissant,
wallpapering monger of
fetid lies, destroyer of futures,
robber of lives, thief of a generation,,
deserver of those long, sharp, 
political knives spoken into your
wasted muscle, your brittle bones
of hypocrisy, those veins of 
smugness, your wizened heart
registering no feelings, just as 
the black pits of your face see
nothing but your own reflection,
too late you realise the doom
that is yours as we take away 
your glitter power.

  6. I’m happy they’re all “former,” but unfortunately, they’ve left a growing cancer behind–at least here in the US.
