Guest Poet – Roger McGough




Leader

I wanna be the leader
I wanna be the leader
Can I be the leader?
Can I? I can?
Promise? Promise?
Yippee I’m the leader
I’m the leader

OK what shall we do?

    1. Can I be the leader?
      Can I can I can?
      Solve the problems of the world?
      Betcha Billy can

      Young ones surely can….

      Politicians squabble
      Cannot come up with plan
      Leave it to young Billy
      Young ones surely can

      Young ones surely can……

      Politicians full of talk
      Blah blah blah blah blah
      Thunberg Tool in operation
      Billy you’re a star

      Billy says he’s thinkin’ of everyone and the future.

      We need more Billies Terveen….

      1. Yeah, ‘The Scaffold’ apparently. Had to look them up as, although I’m aware of their famous song, it was well before my time.

        We used to get given Roger McGough poetry to read at primary school in the mid 80’s – that’s where I remember him from 👍🖤
