All to the Right

Fake it till you make it

with that tan you didn’t have yesterday

making all the fake news

and spraying it across the media

in between adverts for platform trainers

that you can’t run in

unless it’s in an election

where there are only two clowns to vote for

who make each other look good

yet no one is laughing.

Someone call the cops

in the middle of the night

and stop the circus

before the big top comes crashing down

or let’s all head to the ocean

and feel the spray for real.

Word of the Day Challenge – Spray


They had a penchant for destruction

the two of them

best friends



Protecting each other

from what the world may say

burning their work

preventing the damage it may do

to them, others


Imagine if they lived today

Cassandra and Jane

with no time to explain what they meant

in our anti social media


A rant  where only bad or fake

makes good news

Where you get a million hits

if you’re cruel, vicious

or just one on the nose

for something delicious
