Poetry – Politics Kills


Politics Kills

Each pronouncement from the chamber augers life and death.

Some are cast upon the stony ground to wither

While others are raised to the heights.

For politics kills.

As the politicians play their games of intrigue and power

Setting traps and playing tricks

In order to win

In the battle of wills.

Outside in the real world where desperation drives action

And minds cannot find a way out

From the pressure,

Politics kills.

Opher – 1.11.2019

Whether it is war or social services, the decisions made kill people.

Ten years of Tory austerity has blighted millions of lives. The food banks, homeless and zero hours trap is testimony to that.

Politics kills.
