Truth and Responsibility

There’s a culture of blame apparent
That’s swept across the land
Paralysing the sense of freedom
Taking truth hostage in its stand

There’s a move towards complacency
That’s asphyxiating hearts
An inability to apologize
Segregating into parts

There’s a harbouring of hatred
Suffocating liberty
Depriving love and laughter
Detaining in captivity

There’s an ethos of rash judgement
That fails to understand
Neglecting to appreciate
Different perceptions hand in hand

There’s a path of destruction
That stifles global breath
Draining empathy and compassion
Leaving a trail of death

There’s a choice to be made?
A subscription to integrity
Upholding honour daily
With truth and responsibility

I Thought We’d Take Dad Hostage

I thought we’d take dad hostage
Cos despite his old set ways
There’s something that we all adore
When he comes to stay
The way he sits and tells his yarns
Of the good ole days
And adds a new dimension
With all he has to say
But Mum would doubtless miss him
Although she’d swear she’d not
Cos after all those years together
They’re joined up by a knot
The knot of solemn marriage vows
The knot that joins then so
And so dear Dad will leave us and
Back home he will now go
But next time when he visits
We’ll fight against the odds
Cos we want him here forever
As he such a great old sod!!!
