BUBBLE, BLETHER, BLITHER, ABUSIVE PARIAHS
by Thomas Hoskyns Leonard
Bubble away Prince Andrew
At the younger berries and elderberries
Blether Bad Boris Blether
Blither Sir Aristocranky David Attenbatterem blither
Who about nature and starving the African masses burbles
Begone abusive pariahs!
And with Eugenics how about thought
Keep whispering, devious psychopath,
Triangulating owl in your ghostly lair
This poem was composed by Tom Leonard, in the Botanic Cottage in the Royal Botanical Gardens Edinburgh on 21st November 2019. This was during an Open Book writing session led by Pauline Moore during Book Week Scotland. The theme of the session was 'Blether'.
