Tory 2020 – A Poem

The year’s 2020
The NHS is long gone
But who cares about health when you can see The Bake Offs new scone?

The dementia tax succeeded
There’s more dead on our sheets
But who cares about age when you can still watch Coronation street?

Brexit has failed
Bojo fucked up
But who cares about trade when you’ve got the world cup?

Who cares about our country
When we’ve got tv
In the new land of the lost, no one is free

A Play Before Christmas

I’ve finished writing another play.

The play is the same one I referred to in my post, Changes; Exit Stage Right, which I hoped to finish by Christmas. I did it by the 23rd of December which I’m happy about. The downside though it’s that instead of having a day off I have decided to start another project (another play).

Why Horror

Recently I had the pleasure of watching The Human Centipede. A brilliantly sick tale of surgery and domination set against modern day Germany.

This has inspired me to write about the horror film genre.
