Reasons to feel bollocks, part three

Cold North wind in Winter, sexing of a sprinter,
taking out a splinter and rain
US War on terror, measles mumps rubella,
chicken salmonella and period pain

Articulated lorries, landfill in the quarries
a politician’s sorries plus expenses
Ryanair union-busting, Would-be leaders husting
bankers fiscal lusting – nuclear defences

Channel 4 Big Brother, my bloody children’s Mother
voting for the other – Pussycat dolls
All of Dan Brown’s books, too many TV cooks
the boss’s dirty looks – gangsta’s molls

swine flu epidemic, conservative polemic
redundant academic – the BNP
plague of fecking wasps, fundamental mosques
Yeltsin from Sverdlovsk – herbal tea

Health Service cuts,
being kicked in the nuts,
clothes from sweatshop labour

Sarkozy in Paris,
Living next door to Alice,
death of Richard Harris

no sex for a while, Jeremy Kyle
a dose of Johnny Giles

High School Musical 3, get nothing for free
Nintendo Wiinjury
taramasalata, markets that won’t barter
we don’t need no modern Magna Carta

nothing left to study, blocking online buddy
30-something fuddy duddy
extraordinary renditions, ignoring of petitions
freeze of pay and conditions

lack of any silence, domestic violence
no social conscience

Perhaps next year
