Oh Donny Boy 1,2,3,4

A new momentum in the air
A gale of mass contortions
Tempestuous stormy volatile
Causing partisan distortions

People of the lusher world
With so much at their disposal
Are bored and blaming everyone
Seeking leadership deposal

Too much manoeuvring inertia
Shutting gates on sewer drains
As another rampant madcap
Is pledging death to all our pains

We need to lock our entrance doors
Contain the source of mordant fear
Take control become a hidey hole
Avoid the spattering and smear

I love the taste of chocolate
It is a buddy to my buds
I can’t resist its melting charm
Nor treasured essence as it floods

A tasteful spatial instant hit
Three dimensions all in one
A shape to dream in landscapes
My roller coaster number one

Whether bar or chunk or spherical
It is a sumptuous shapely feast
Plainly wrapped or golden capped
Pandora’s inner moon released
