The Answer? By CpSingleton © 2014

For some this earth is a test.
The bottom rung; the original hell.
That heaven is two more lives:
I am human, who am I to tell?

I can only offer an opinion or
An imagery point of view.
Something based on reading or
Thoughts that fester and slowly stew.

If this is the horrendous hell that
Certain minds assume,
Is that partly down to how
Their darker flowers bloom?

If you are seeing fanged shadows
In every dusty nook then
The ideas of conspiracy are
Bound to change your outlook.

Yes, the world is full of poor and
Rich are hoarding more than ever, but,
To say they control what I think and
Also aspects of the weather

Is absolutely preposterous!
Nothing has control of me!
I watch only news and soaps
On my widescreen HD TV.

They educate me extensively
On subjects far and wide.
Theories on the Bilderberg are
Something I will not abide.

I trust the government completely
That Cameron is polite.
I stand for my national anthem
I find it only right.

To suggest the queen’s a lizard
Is going far too far!
She is our monarch after-all,
Our little guiding star.

Each to their own I say,
Hell is where you find it.
I could be poor, without a door and
Clothes that do not fit,

But I would still be happy,
I’d find a way to live.
It’s not right to put your hand out
And expect the world to give.

It would be seen as generous
A good thing for the Earth.
However, they have spent centuries
Nefariously amassing their own worth!

Not something easily given up:
Looking down upon the masses.
Just pop to the rich neighbourhoods and
Ask the upper classes.

These are the enlightened
Just like them-there illuminati,
Who are lizards, Greeks, Egyptians
Aliens, intelligentsia and the devil’s party.

If they have been going aeons
Why not worm into politics?
Not hide behind legends,
Playing silly tricks.

Maybe I’m the illuminati?
Or I may just be a yak?
Hiding in my winter palace
Sleeping on a stack.

Either way, until a good solution
Filled with peace arrives,
I just pray my sense of humour
Continues to survive.

About cpsingleton42

I am a - not so young - writer of poetry and prose. I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © C.p.Singleton, 2012.

  1. Excellence in thought and,
    poetry of course. Love your perception and discretion.
    Reminds me of a quote I once heard. Actually two quotes…
    ~°•○☆”Laughs “☆○•°~
    1. “We are spiritual being’s having a human experience.”
    2. Religion is for people that are afraid of going to hell, spirituality is for people that have been there.”

  2. Thank you for reading my poem I am on your page, and so far all I know is that I’m jealous you had all that fun in England that I didn’t get to be with you and share and that I am interested in meeting Jacob. I’m sure I will and won’t my mouth is impatient, my heart is not. I’ll be nearby.

  3. That was a fun read. I agree, too many people(I´m from Spain so in a way the system is a little the same) are looking for a handout from the government, I might be broke, literally, but I don´t blame him or her or the system, blame me sometimes, but I get up with a smile in my face to confront the next face of the next day.

    • That the right philosophy.
      See, I do understand what these anti-capitalists are trying to achieve: a certain Star Trek society, but merely complaining or smashing windows isn’t gonna help. The rich are insured and if they claim, which they will, it’s only the poor who are going to suffer.
      My old man lives in Spain. Although,for the life of me I can’t remember where!
      Take care Charly!
