Campaigning for Something Fairer (Originally Untitled) – Written November 2016 (Aged 41)

Campaigning for Something Fairer

i am a left wing liberal
apparently
although,
realism,
defies my mistrust in socialism
anyway
what does that mean
i am interested in social justice
but now the right wing grip
decides that,
despite being full of people
who have benefited
from progressive social justice
conservatism,
would not enrich their realism
but hate,
is seen as a truism
it is,
is it not!
to swim across that pool
to the side that rationale has forgot
to have simplistic tools
in a digital age
i am just campaigning
for something fairer
something that is not just blaming
but, oh the abuse
and the fear of change and rearranging




James Garratt – November 2016
