Yesterday - Poem by Sallie Howson

It was a funny old day yesterday.
The priest sent kids
Around his parish
To put stickers
On letterboxes saying
'Jehovah’s Witnesses
Please call.'

The graffiti artists
Painted
'Yes Islam' slogans
On watercolour
Backgrounds.

The Naziskins
Threw a welcoming party
For the
Illegal immigrants.

The politicians
Outlawed bureaucracy,
Reduced taxes
And gave themselves
A pay cut.

The trains
Ran on time.

Children everywhere
Ate their vegetables
And asked for more.

Husbands
Really listened
To their wives.

Women
Found burps and farts
Funny.

You read my poems
And I told you
I loved you
Yesterday.

Yes, it was a funny old day
