A Prayer For The Living

2 Oct

Here’s a poem I wrote on my mobile back in July just after Theresa May was elected PM:

The sun bleeds casting an orange hue over the earth

whilst a suicide explodes in Medina

Turkey and Bangladesh are forgotten

Orlando is immortalised

People are demoralised

Let’s Pray for the living.

 

Buses trundle along the street

Reports of racism are rife

Indigenous population causing strife

Leaders stop leading because of knives

And Eve takes over with a cunning smile

Let’s Pray for the Living
