Pillar box red – Pillar box dead

 

 

An off the public school cuff remark

Meant “in jest”

at “Johnny foreigner” to him and the rest

 

led to her beating

led to her death

 

Pillar box red

Pillar box dead

 

He writing aloof in the Toffs Telegraph

High above us all

Trickled down to the street below

 

Pillar box red

Pillar box dead

 

It’s ok to hate

And now ridicule

And now persecute

 

Taking down the veil

For hatred to be revealed

 

To kill and maim

People different

Including, eventually you

David R Mellor

Born 1964, (Liverpool, England) difficult birth, didn’t find my voice until my youth. Years of thinking I was nobody and treated as such. However, hit the paper papering over the scars. Found understanding and belief through words. I have been published and performed widely from the BBC, The Tate, galleries and pubs and everything in between.

My poems are autobiographical, others topical and several my take on life. Hope you enjoy reading as much as I have enjoyed writing. Please feel free to share your thoughts on links below.
