You've read the news stories about the separation of immigrant families in the United States. You will be aware of the message Melania Trump carried on her coat. Poets have responded, from both sides of the Atlantic. Read what they have to say, this weekend, at Poetry24.

That Was the MUSE That Was

From Wyoming with love

Sweep up the homeless of Windsor
Their bags and detritus
Spoiling the view

Hard whacking
Jolly hockey sticks
Move along please sir
Make way for 'is 'ighness
and the luverly lady

Eton rifles
'shoot em down'
take up arms
against
this epidemic of
rough sleeping
and vagrancy
Not fit for the eyes of a king

Step inside
That hallowed space
Ding dong merrily on
high bloody society
And dare to ask for bread of heaven

Feed me till I want no more!!!

Windsor council leader calls for removal of homeless before royal wedding

Bex Tate, frustrated with the data driven education system, recently left behind her job as a Kindergarten teacher to spend time writing and pondering life. Writing poetry helps her to try and make sense of the world...as well as giving her the chance to rant a bit!!
