You became familiar with a surprizing name
You heard many a meaningless slogan
You saw a flawlessly polished and glinting smile
– or was it just glare from the teleprompter?
This is what you had waited for
Like last time, the time before and the time before that too
You had wondered down a path never trod
Frequent signs from your television reassured you,
Numbed any pain
But this, this was the path of the yellow brick road.
Like a 911 jumper, we faithed somebody somewhere assembled something, making worthy our trusting leap.
And like the 911 jumper, you accelerate – much more than you imagined
Don’t worry, It will come
The affordable operation, wholesome food, respect when travelling abroad
Reasonably priced college places, the chance to own your own home
A telling off not a Tazering, from those who serve and protect
Unsnooped calls plus e-mails and no gangs offering medication you really don’t want.
There WILL be a trampoline, perhaps stacked cardboard boxes
A bed of sytrofoam or may even be a hurredly inflated pool – it was on the telly, or at least catching arms below

Sight of what’s on the ground cannot be fixed. It’s bearingless and too confusing for comprehension.
Whether you understand what finally happens simply isn’t known.
Obama is ratcheting up the war in Afghanistan. I am utterly convinced it will embrace Pakistan. And here’s what the first mention of Obama on the BBC internatonal news cover page.
and here’s what you get when you click the indept analysis of the latest globally significant move…
So glad the BBC is living up to it’s charter to keep you informated about important global events, which you fund, oh, I forgot to mention, now those massively over sized adverts pay for too, while your licence fee goes up and up and up.
Interstingly there are some global warming stories in the front page too! Here’s snapshot…
Spot it? a person in the UN (no climate qualification mentioned at this stage) suggests AGW is wrong.
But having the last word with a much larger title and bolder heading states definitively that man HAS changed the climate.
Ho ho as Wogan would put it! BBC Gold!
And once again, nothing about chemical pollution: fertilizers, pesticides, GM contamination, PCB’s dioxins, CO, SO2, pharmaceutical waste, solvent and oil leakage, nuclear chemical waste and nuclear radioactive pollution.
Well done BBC. Another exemplory dispalay of the greatness.
