Invisibility

An invisible man
Lived a transparent life
Under the radar
With his unobserved wife.

Never voiced an opinion,
Favoured anyone's side
Or backed in a corner
With nowhere to hide.

Always sat on the fence,
Expressing no view,
Prefacing answers,
I believe that is true.

Never hear the birds singing,
Saw the joy in a spring,
Felt the pride and the heartache
That only kids bring.

When he finally passed,
As all of us do,
At the gates, he told Peter,
I'll leave it to you.

 Opinions 

Opinions 
divide us, 
polarise people.

To raise 
any topic 
contentious or otherwise 
is to divide opinion.
Those for, 
those against. 

Opinion though, 
raises our awareness, 
makes us think, 
outside the box, 
beyond the envelope, 
through the blue sky. 
It makes us human, 
in my opinion.

Labour faces civil war
Corbyn's been suspended
One week he's their leader
The next, he's been upended.

Starmer tries to sort it out
This problem with the Jews
Jeremy sees it differently
In public, airs his views.

The fact that he goes public
Leaves Starmer with no choice
With trouble brewing in their ranks
Who'll have the strongest voice.

Former Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn was 
suspended from the party after a disagreement 
with new leader Kier Starmer about the way 
that Labour was dealing with anti-semetism 
in the party.
