Eddie’s Poems

No cash card, pay
or possession can I take
Nothing but IQ

Long overdue
Leaving and relieved
Relieved to be leaving


He finally moved
Closed the borders
Invaded the north

Tired of challenges
Bored of poverty
He called time

The tanks rolled
Parliament was suspended
The opposition jailed

We queue now
Along barbed wire
Centralised and uniformed

The search lights staffed
By armed guards
Wearing Tebbit masks

By Eddie Coates-Madden
