The Virtual Writer Longford

The Colony

by Tommy Murray

So what’s a dozen serial killers then
Or the odd assassin
God bless them
And who’s for infanticide
Not to mention murder
And mayhem
And thuggery
And three kinds of thievery

There’s promiscuity here too
And polygamy
And adult homosexual couplings
On a grand scale
With fowl language
And slanging matches
The norm, and
There have also been reports of gang rape

Oh yes, it’s all here
In this Hitchcockian swirl
Of screaming gulls and guillemots

This poem is one of three poems that I currently have on the' Virtual Writer 'website
