I’d write a political poem by Adrian Manning

 

but politics is letting
me down
I’d like to write a poem
of hope, fairness
and a good deal for all
what I think politics
should be
but I cannot see that

all I can see is greed, hatred
and blame
that’s not as it should be
so I cannot write a
political poem

only one with sorrow
down the middle
and a darkness
equal to a politician’s heart
at its core
