30/5/20 Poems - #InterpersonalPolarisation & #PolarisationInPolitics

A broken connection 

A grief

A sense of misunderstanding 

A hurt

A wish to be seen as precious

A wish to have valued more palpably

And arrived at the solidarity 

That is all that may save us.


We each hold part of the story

And many of us fire it from a self-erected moral high ground

Instead of meeting in wigwams on the plains

Where we might open to something more profound.

And hear the tale of a sense of betrayal 

As well as that of attempting to govern

Then weave in my dream to go beyond the polarities

Of the northern expeditions

By the Number 10 key worker

Whose integrity is questioned

By his not staying southern.
