Eccentrics and Society

FCS focuses on humour,
offbeat poetry and exploring things different

“Eccentrics, like tall poppies, are ironed flat by society

They are seen as a threat to it’s stability model

Well I won’t be ironed flat

I will stand up and be myself

My eccentricities you will just have to accept

Modify your model, society

Me impersonating Spike

Eccentrics in Australia are ironed flat
In UK they’re treasured

I think I’m living in the wrong country

I just like playing round with words. And having fun

  1. I dunno, Don – my country may be full of eccentrics but it’s in a miserable state nonetheless. I do agree that we should embrace eccentricity (just maybe not in the form of a bicycle-riding PM with a bad hair-do).

  2. If you are eccentric and famous in UK, like Ken Dodd, or Spike Milligan, you are treasured. If you are not people just say you’re a ‘nut job!’
    As for Boris, he just falls in-between!
