UNTITLED (by Gerry Hamill)

‘If you’re aristocratic,’ said Nietzsche,

‘It’s thumbs up, you’re OK. Pleased to mietzsche.

If you’re working class bores,

It’s thumbs down and up yours!

If you don’t know your place, then I’ll tietzsche.’

from SUMMER WITH MONIKA (by Roger McGough)

away from you

i feel a great emptiness

a gnawing loneliness

with you

i get that reassuring feeling

of wanting to escape

A post-structuralist lay dying

(Son membre à la main),

Which he said, “I’ll die a happy death

Because I understand.

I understand how things are shown

(For instance, mis en scène),

Which I deconstruct constructions there

Constructed on the screen.

I‘ve toured and taught and lectured

(They all say I’m quite a talker),

Which I’ve dealt with everything

From Avatar to Riddley  Walker*.

But invite no ackers** to my wake

(They always criticize me),

Which my corpse should lie face downwards

So my friends will recognize me”.
