Momentum by Anne Mallinson

Campaign propaganda
chews through the wires.
Facts sieved through a handler
tangle at the top of the pile.
Candidates spew sound-bytes
in five second flashes,
wear coats buttoned one hole off,
words dry as lint from our empty pockets.

Hope founders
as the current pulls a new day
over the great unwashed
and once again
we are asked
to believe.
