ME Poetry

Noise And M.E.

I think in the last couple of weeks it’s been decided that every advert on TV needs the loudest possible backtrack, just for the hell of it. It reminded me of this…. NOISE AND M.E.

It’s Not You, It’s M.E.

It’s Not You, It’s M.E. When we first started outWide eyed at the coming yearsWe were so strongWe just bowled alongNo worries, no cares, no fears.

My scrambled brainIs like thundering rainI cower from the merest lightLike a laser […]

Help The Millions Missing

Help The Millions Missing Have you heard of the Millions MissingHave you heard the newsSurely they’ve been on the radioLooking for any clues Have you heard of the Millions MissingPeople just gone amissNo longer turning up for workGone down some abyss Have you heard of the Millions MissingIt’s not something they’d suppressYou can’t have people […]
