Fat Cat (A rap poem)


Fat cat, head of state,

Earns far more

Than he deserves

When he knows not

Wot’s going on ~

Others run his life for him!

Is he so weak

Or is it a charade

That ‘they’ choose

How much he spends

So his ignorance knows no end.

From the shower to the pool

He is nothing but a fool

Thinking that the powa

Will be his for eva ~

The writing is on the wall

(be it ever so small)

It is there for all

To see.

Window Dressing (a Rap Poem)


Spin and leap

High in the air

Try to catch

What isn’t there

Windows covered

With drapes and blinds

Who can guess

What hides behind

A perfect scene

Try not to scream

Making up

Waking up

From a dream

Spider lashes

On her cheek

Lips silly-coned

She cannot speak

And (s)he, and he

With coiffured hair

Blows his TRUMPet

For all to hear

A plastic life

In a paper book

A fairy tale

Which some believe

And try so hard

To achieve

The Piper


Dancing to the Piper’s tune
With a-wailing here and a-reeling there
Lift your feet up in the air
‘cos you don’t want to trip
An’ you don’t want to slip
And beware of the crooked stair

Oohlala, oohlalay as the Piper pipes away
Faster, faster, there he goes
You must be smarter on your toes
Happy music plays today
But who knows what the morrow brings
Only the Piper kens the songs he sings

When you gonna see (rap)


Hey, J-Zee
When you gonna see
Ed-u-cation is the key
We don’t all need
A D-gree
What we want
Is capa-city
To live a life
No strife
Don’t you see
Take our pride
Let us decide
Give us the tools
We not fools
Give us the chance
To sing and dance
Kanye West and Dr Dre
Will let us play
We B A for Away

Copy Cats (a rap poem)


Copy cats emulate
dancing jubilation
holding you in high regard
showing approbation
idolise, venerate
muddy feet of clay
confusticate your nemesis
a favour to repay
exposed at last
disclosed, unmasked
trapped like a rat
living on the fat
dripping off the roast
and having the most
power in the land
or so we understand…
