NaPoWriMo Day 14: The Politician


The politician


Going forward we’d be backward if

we didn’t have a goal to look forward to.

Let me make this crystal clear. Crystal clear.


We’ll take our whole raft of measures on board,

unpack it and run with it. Everything is on

the table and I’m not ruling anything in or out.



I’ve said this before.

Let’s be consistent about this

going forward.


Down through the years I’ll hit the ground

running an uphill battle on the slippery slope

on the downward spiral.


We’ve been inundated and left

hung out to dry

in the 24 hour spin cycle.


But it’s crystal clear.

Going forward we’ll be,

er, going forward.

  1. In this ever changing, globalized national poetry writing month, sooner rather than later, you are always sooner rather than later. Brill Rob. Mine will be up later (as the bishop etc.)
