Newfound Mother-Father-Wasteland

Newfound Mother-Father-Wasteland!
My Tetley comrade
Where not uncommon
Community court order
For a man who wasted
Woman’s life.
And medals
For those
Who killed another country
By expensive weapons.
On envelope to bank
That blows my savings,
And foreman
For ruling team
Who looks and lies
Like idiot.
O, Eliot!
How did you know
Before my birth in USSR?
And how I come and settle here
To learn to hate
My very husband?
Imagination of myself
Has no credentials to match:
Charity new-age wristbands
To cover my pain-management
That wedding wristwatch never covers.
Just pissing rain
Where are adds ‘Monsoon’…
Too seldom storm
To understand
The whisper of this English thunder…
Before I sink into shmamarsis
I’m eavesdropping without wonder:
Gimmi a tenna
4 a tea break
wif Ms Sosostris…

    It is unexpected from you, Svetlana!
    Very different. Clever.
    What happened to love?
