Patriot Killer

Its easy,
just flag 'em down,
poor unsuspecting sods,
dark road or shady lane
on way out of town.
He'll say, "Its the piston Mate."
if he's a know all.
Bonnet up,to late for him,
or both if his tarts there.
Bent over engine
will it ,won't it start?
Back end stuck in the air.
Smash down monkey wrench,
look on his face.
"Smart arse," I'd scream.
Seems like a dream.
"Don't get clever with me."
Lay him out in bushes
or undergrowths screen,
decent send off,
Union Jack flag,
thats what i wrap 'em in.
Nom de plume?
"The Patriot Killer,"
thats me,thats my name,
whistling on my way
into work;
ain't life insane?

sorry but you can do better, this is more like info material, poetry i see not, perhaps at the end of something much larger, and i dont think that minimalist can even begin to catagorize this....this is beyond minimal

Chill Isabelle

for everything comes to us if we wait but that does not include explanations. Many many people think and feel life as totally insane.
