I’ve been watching us from the moon humming this tune
keep being you - that’s what you’ll do
I’ll continue too as we align ourselves with simplicity
You existed before you did to me.
Briefly we skipped a beat, tripped over each others feet
Our eyes would meet, you would retreat
because you felt safer in your head expressionless.
saying to yourself “This all I have left.”
That’ll leave you where you lay
With that said I will not stay to say
Our moment together has washed away
Today my path flows a different way!

'Scrap Trident' by David Kerr
Today’s comic is about the UK’s Trident nuclear weapons programme, by Glasgow illustrator and comics artist David Kerr. David says:"A short illustrated pamphlet on the Subject of Trident originally commissioned by Stir to Action (http://stirtoaction.com/) magazine. Excerpts from the sequence have subsequently been publicised by Scottish CND and will be exhibited at an upcoming touring exhibition on the subject of Scottish Independence at the Guardian News and Media Gallery in London and the Leiper Gallery in Glasgow organised by the Scottish Cartoon Art Studio.
Trident is due for renewal at a cost of 83.5bn, the pamphlet argues that this is an excessive waste of tax payers money at a time when austerity measures are forcing thousands of people into poverty across the UK. The pamphlet also argues that Trident is a public health risk and suggests that if Scotland becomes independent Trident could be scrapped. At present the only political parties coming out against Trident in Westminster are SNP, the Greens and Plaid Cymru. For more information read Trident: Nowhere to Go: http://www.cnduk.org/information/briefings/trident-briefings/item/1324-trident-nowhere-to-go

Although we’ve largely been focusing on the referendum so far, the Comic Soapbox project welcomes submissions created in Scotland that cover all political issues. Keep them coming!
