Political Pause (Poem 2019 – 32)

Slogans
Persuasion
Lies and coercion
Fabricated truth
Immigration pressure
A misleading agenda

Pause

Pass the buck

Uninformed public
With biased opinion
Fear and distrust
A nation divided
Europe loses

We lose

Pause

Liberty descending
With eyes glinting
All for the taking
The viper’s striking
Paralysing government

Pause

What now?
