Plenty of Fish in the Sea

Plenty of fish in the sea
Plenty of trees in the forests
Plenty of cows
Plenty of pigs
Plenty of chickens
plenty of animals to go around
Of course they're gonna last
when their dying to fill my plate
of course the trees are gonna last
when we keep chopping them down
The Earth will keep turning
while we choose to keep burning
fuels that cause pollution
what makes you think there's another solution?
I don't have to care
what happens to the bears
I'll be happy on my three piece leather sofa
watching my ninety inch plasma television
after all
there's plenty of fish in the sea

Some published work this week!

I've got printed thanks to two of my favourite music/feminism sites

the first one is a short piece I wrote about the influence of Joan Jett on me, included in a zine made especially for Ladyfest, that's here

and the other is my first review for the amazing website The F Word, it's a book review here

In the Sky

He hid his face amid a crowd of stars
and placed his feet just behind the planet mars
he wished not to see
didn't want to know what was down below
the sky was his refuge
a shelter from the Earth's corruption
here in the solar system there's no disruption
just purity and beauty
no need to escape
just sit and dream
and watch the night float by

first line from the beautiful poem When you are Old by W.B Yeats

Magnetic Poetry Part 2

Don't say that now
you and I lie awake
while she's there
if this has to be the way
I don't wanna see the light
we're phoney
there is nothing in the night
take down your crossfire
it was a long way off
it got out of hand
guess I must just live now
and there's a hurricane of bleakness
baby you got worse
a deaf kiss plays us out
