Two Poems by iDrew



when the warning came my first thought was

what kind

i mean i wouldn’t wear the same colour outfit

during a yellow warning as i would during a red

any clash might be catastrophic

and i’d want to look my best


on the street the warning was in front of me


screaming that life contains scenes of

sex and violence

there’s oodles of anglo-saxon language

(which some might find obscene)



with that sort of warning i’m pretty certain

i’d best wear me fourteen hole doc martens

filigree lace negligee and leather biker’s jacket

matching bra and knickers

(in case i’m in an accident)

keep my hair in a simple pony tail


check list:

√  i’ve mascara and lippy

√  handy travel tissues and wipes

√  i’ve a bag of weed plus skins

√  a handful of pills

√  a bottle of voddy

√  a packet of condoms

√  and a barbie pink baseball bat

it’s important that a girl be ready

for anything that could happen




my flat mate gemma

has become a right little

eco warrior

she’s gonna write

to our MP tomorrow

ask him questions about

landfill and fossil fuels

and do we need more runways

more motorways

green belt building

nuclear power stations

she wants to know

if his vision

is of a concrete nation


i didn’t know you could do that

you know

write to yer MP

and ask him stuff

so i’m gonna write

‘cos i wanna find out

why the cosmetics industry

has this strange obsession

to make shower gels

and hair conditioners

with a spunk like resemblance
