Hustings


Blink and you’ll miss it,
This modern cynical
Pinnacle of contempt,
Political legerdemain.

People’s lives under pots,
One, blue, two, three;
Never mind about life
And death issues

And O how they issue,
As long as there’s comfort
In a cable, an act.
The universities will empty

And our world will contract.
A man in a church lay dead,
A city is your bed,
I wish the rest good luck.
