Make A Stand

Stick your head above the parapet
And you will surely find
That there’ll be fireworks coming fast
To shoot you down in kind
For make a stand; a mark; defy;
Hold fast to your belief
You’ll get accused of rivalry
And blamed with no relief

For those who stand up to the rest
Who hold to morals true
Who speak out for the rights of all
Are hated by the few
Who hold the power to persecute
To twist, command, contort
In case their wings of rule are clipped
Their ego’s then cut short

For life comes with a social rule
A pecking order real
Where those a top will subjugate
Whilst those below will feel
They simply are the rank and file
No voices and controls
And dare to set a challenge, they’ll
Be hauled over the coals


Stick your head above the parapet
And you will surely find
That there’ll be fireworks aiming to
Shoot and control your mind
Resist attack, be resolute
Don’t cave but steadfastly
But calmly stand your ground so firm
Against inequity

Bonfire Night

A crackle, bang and glitter
Now lighting up the sky
And shooting into darkness
With colours veering high

A Catherine Wheel a whirling
A rocket whistling past
The whizz and hum of fireworks
With stars that sparkle fast

And watched by wide eyed children
With adults stood in awe
The pyrotechnic splendour
Is dropping many jaws

And lapping up the warmness
From raging hot bonfires
The penny guy is burning
In raggedy attire

With children holding sparklers
To spell out all their names
In fiery trails so blazing
Before more other games

Whilst hot dogs cook on charcoal
For consuming with delight
Such fun! The firework party
Today – it’s bonfire night!

Firework Fear!

Oh what on earth! What is that bang!
The sky is falling in!
The crackle and the pops are loud
And really so startling!

I’m scared out of my life and mind
I swear I just don’t know
Just what to do or what to think
And neither where to go

So under table I will hide
Or scratch at the back door
Then yowl and yelp and bark a bit
Or yap and moan some more

But if I am a man’s best friend
You’ll think to plan ahead
And keep me calm with curtains closed
In peace and quiet instead

And with regards my feline foe
Tonight we might agree
That fireworks scare both dogs and cat
And sit in unity

So please all owners be aware
As bonfire nights come near
And spare a thought for all of us
To save us from our fear!
