LEADERS - not followers

For dVerse poets pub


nothing much changes round here
and to qualify that score
after having been away
for a dozen years or more

everything looks exactly
the same as in days of yore
while appearing completely
different compared to before

so welcome home to blighty
I missed the old place for sure
cold wet windy day and night
anyone care anymore?

triple dip deep recession
here in the land of the poor
normal service won't resume
are we rotten to the core?

relationship's uncertain
but all's fair in love and war
there's just two things I ask for
one thing I'd like to ignore

same note different handwriting
hanging on the kitchen door
'your dinner's in the toaster
dirty washing's on the floor' !
