I've been inspired for many months now by the 'Letter a Day to No.10' Facebook blog written by 'Keith Ordinary Guy'. Each day Keith writes a physical letter which he posts to David Cameron in which he exposes the lies, deceit and plain inhumanity that Ca-Moron's policies are having, particularly with regard to their effects on the lowest tier of society. They are darkly humourous, hard-hitting and very angry. Needless to say, Ca-Moron has yet to reply. Highly recommended.
Another good FB friend Ged,introduced me to the wondrously talented musician Katy Anchant who I discovered, has recently adopted a similar tactic, though in her case, she writes posing as a young woman besotted with Cameron and his policies in her daily 'Letter to David'. She also physically writes and posts these letters to him.
Katy mines a very rich vein of outrageous satire and her missives are another daily delight for me.
Meanwhile, Susan, another good American FB friend had sparked back to life my love of limericks and we spent a joyful evening shortly before the USA elections trading verses taking the piss out of various putative and actual world leaders.
Hence my recent decision to try to write a Pome a Day reflecting on recent news. Mainly of course, I hope to take some skilful potshots at the despicable bunch of cretins* that call themselves the government of this country.
I'll try to gather both the international limericks that started this off, along with my early attempts aimed at the national stage - which I've been publishing on my FB page - and eventually post links to everything from this blogpost.
* I apologise to all genuine cretins who may quite rightfully be incensed with being compared with this bunch of *******!s **
** The Guild of Asterisks confirm that no *'s were harmed in the production of this blog
