It’s mad May in the English garden
Phillip Glass is in the sink
Crazy paving’s running riot
the daffodils are on the blink.

the wisteria is hysterical
the geraniums are late
the snails are thriving in herbaceous borders
next doors cat is hunting chicks

Mad May in the municipal offices
Mad May in the red brick pool
Mad May in the dentist and the doctors
Jubilees and bunting rule

May day’s come and gone unnoticed
The house of Lords have brushed their wigs
The cabinet have sent a cut
to the Queen for her to read

Mad May in the highstreet hustle
Mad May in the job centre queue
Mad May in the admin department
Building asylums and closing schools

Mayday, Mayday, but the marching’s over
Syrian Civillians are exploding from cars
The King of Bahrain is eating cake
the tyrant of Swaziland’s playing cards

Mad May, Rule Brittania
Parliament’s hung
the garden grows

My tiny house
glows in it’s driveway
safe with it’s roses.
Mayday howls.
