Grievances aside, lately
I’ve come to appreciate your finer points ~
The moon cradled in the sky at night
wood smoke on patch work fields
a flower, a tree, a good bottle of red.
But it’s this other shite I can’t abide
death, terrorism, greed, war,
…………………………..Tory party rule
It’s as if you painted a masterpiece
then finger smudged the sky.
