Surrey on the Unmanliness of Rulers

Yes, it's President Tweet, but it has to be, if you look at the original Surrey poem! The theme is dictated.

I am posting these poems, writings-through of some sonnets by Surrey, as I write them, because of the topicality of their subjects. I shall also only leave them up temporarily, during the composition process. I'm thinking of posting no more than 4 at any one time on the blog. And eventually they will all disappear. See here to check for poems from other days. Scroll back and find the other three... Also note the beginning of this sonnet exploration, Petrarch 3, is still for sale and is the featured post to the right of this column. And one of my previous Wyatt poems is here: from Hap: Understudies of Thomas Wyatt’s Petrarch. And another, recently published in International Times here



In peacetime, no warriors in frillies will defy his decree.
These suicidal fairies can’t be trusted to blow things up
and kill people with overwhelming force, the spokesman said.
Gender’s agenda. But he’s all tweet and no sky-diving!

As far as Surrey’s Saradanapalus, he’s clearly a fop but
he’s still the sort to say, ‘I love balloons but nobody knows
what makes a balloon fly!’ But our man said: What’s the point
of nuclear weapons if you don’t use them? Kim Jong-Il laughs.

Inhuman masculinity is unmanly in my books (Books! Who
reads poetry these days? I can guess the answer.). Getting
your whore to piss on a Russian couch. (Who cleans up?)

Feeble and febrile, if he faces dishonour, loses the right to govern
the free world, out of his wealth in a storm of rage he’d rise,
thumbs on button and kill us all to show some ‘manful’ deed.

As our man says: What’s the point of nuclear weapons

Get your whore to piss on a Russian couch! (Who cleans up?)
Inhuman masculinity is unmanly in my books (Books! Who
reads poetry these days? I can guess the answer, Henry.).

Feeble and febrile, if he ever faces dishonour, loses the right to govern
the free world, out of his wealth in a storm of rage, he’ll rise,
(thumb on button), and kill us all to show some ‘manful’ deed.

As far as Surrey’s Saradanapalus, he’s clearly a sissy,
the sort to say, I love balloons but nobody knows what makes ’em fly!
As our man says: What’s the point of nuclear weapons
if you don’t use ’em? Kim Jong-un knows how to make them fly!

Filthy lust! Get your whore to piss on a Russian couch!
Inhuman masculinity is unmanly in my books. Books! Who
reads poetry these days? I can guess the answer, Henry, can’t you?

Feeble and febrile, if he ever faces dishonour, loses his right to govern,
I fear that, out of his wealth in a storm of rage, he’ll rise,
thumb on button, and kill us all to show some manful deed.    

 Let's take the !!!!!!!!! out ! It'll end up like a Trump TWEET!
