Les Merton- A Poem

Country Man

Pheasants in season
rabbits for the table
clay pigeon at the country fair
he’d shot them all.
     What’s up?
You are looking bloody fierce
     with that AK-47, 
     are you starting a revolution?

No! Just looking after me own…

  What do you mean?

Aliens have been sighted … 

What are you going do?

Enjoy a little target practice…
