Pickaxe – Written Monday 7th November 2005 (Aged 30)


he has got a pickaxe
and i could not hear it,
through her screams
as he welcomes her nightmares
and kills her dreams
he is another politician
with another broken promise
another patronising contestant
for a condescending world

James Garratt – Monday 7th November 2005
