'The Blessings of Tony Blair' (draft/unfinished 23/11/23)

Another hone on taste,

parades red fusses 

& the monks poise

professional managerial class

is dayblue turning trite

manifestos out logheads

but I can’t read at the Ability Grouping table

remember the future society 

logarithmic falling levity 

all things big & bright

you can see friendships ruck

in this gelded hellscape,

raked on consignments nubbed

like an estate child's

cursed leaven the kinder noughties

phishing out hallowed light

against you & eyes watched
broken piling the last stars paled
by an invisible hand
'The Blessings of Tony Blair'.
