The Parkgate Poet on Dominic Cummings

Author: Barrie Youde Published: 27th May 2020 07:20

In his latest offering, Parkgate Poet Barrie Youde offers his take on the furore surrounding the Prime Minister's senior advisor Dominic Cummings and his decision to travel to Durham from London during lockdown.



Do not as I do but as I say.
Stay home, as I escape, some miles away.
As I am your adviser
I am clearly much the wiser,
And you should realise that much today.


I understand that you might not agree.
That is because you're stupid, don't you see?
I wrote the rules, I tell you.
They're intended to compel you.
Compulsory for you, but not for me.


And that is now a principle of law.
You should have understood all this before.
Democracy is finished
And your liberty diminished:
In lock-down you're the mugs behind the door.


Prime Minister is Primus Inter Pares,
Attracting gasps and unbelieving stares,
As he believes in me
In his core philosophy,
And I'm the one who not remotely cares.


When Crassius was Emperor of Rome
He taught me much, in Vino and in Tome.
The grapes of wrath I relish
And my wardrobe I'll embellish
With clothes for wearing When You Stay At Home.



Dominic Cummings
