Let Them Drink Beer

Some poems I wrote a while ago, that I found on a post-it note in scrawly handwriting and saved from being consigned to a bin:

Let Them Drink Beer

He puts a penny in my drink
Saying “Save the Queen, she’s drowning.”
“It’s okay, Liz’ll understand –
This drink’s too good for downing.”


The press are never on your side
They’ll hound you till they have your hide
Print pictures of you nude inside.
Oh, woe is me, life’s just not fair
When you’re a multi-millionaire.
