Anthony Di'anno (Yorkshire)
Your cards they are a tumbling and falling,
Pennies from heaven can not save you now,
For you destiny has come a calling,
Yet your demise seems a pity somehow.
But your days they have always been numbered,
Alongside all the steps that you would take,
To save each opportunity blundered,
Not just for your's but everyone's sake.
Your sheep are naked lost up on the moor,
Your dogs have been barking up the wrong tree,
One thing will remain forever for sure,
The simple fact that you never fooled me,
Though I smile as you take your final bow,
Your demise still seems a pity somehow.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Pennies from heaven refers to his constant begging for money from his followers who perceive him to be some kind of saviour.
Opportunites blundered refers to the fact that although he has made a hash of The People's Voice he could fix it through accepting responsibility and moving on instead of blaming those who haven't sent him money.
Sheep is his favourite way of describing people who fail to follow his preachings. They are naked because they have been fleeced.
Dogs refers to the moderators on his forum who are rabid in their blind defence of him.
And yes his demise is a shame considering the good he could have done.
