Hidden Agendas

Posted by Simon Parke, 02 April 2019, 11.46am

What agenda do you bring to the table?

Which agendas do you place round my neck?

There’s a story beneath our pronouncements

Like there’s an engine beneath the ship’s deck


So what agendas do you bring to the table?

Which passion so filters your speech?

What longing dictates the positions you take?

So powerful yet quite beyond reach


So what agendas do you bring to the table?

I feel their force every day

Do you sometimes find them a prison?

I s’pose that would be quite hard to say


So what agendas do I bring to the table?

Show me yours and I’ll show you mine

Perhaps then some strange birth, two strangers on earth

Who together might laugh - and then dine
