Panto Villains (Now It Is Our Turn) – Monday 22nd July 2019

Panto Villains (Now It Is Our Turn)

we created these populists
these cartoon characters
they are drawn by us
these panto villains
represent our fear
we paid for them,
to appear
trump does not represent the right
or white nationalists
he represents america
and its eschewed values
around wealth and power
its love of capitalism
and how it must flower
the liberal americans
may turn away in disgust
but in that excluding dream
they have always placed their trust
and now,
it is our turn
having watched one accident,
we decide not to learn
