Remember! Your poems don't have to be inspired by politics, alone. There's much more going on in your world, both locally and globally.

Noise attack

Noise attack

Wear earplugs-
If you're at an open air gin festival
With decibels drifting over
Nearby residences,
It's the locals themselves
Who'll probably pop in the sponges.
DJ's playing in enclosed bar spaces-
After a few rum cocktails you won't notice
They've pumped the volume up,
And those aren't church bells
Ringing outside.
