Political Fortunes Winner

Political FortunesIf there was ever a time to be inspired by politics, it was last year. The EU Referendum, David Cameron's resignation, the Conservative leadership race, a new Prime Minister, the rise and fall and rise again of Boris Johnson. There was no shortage of material, so we asked you to write a poem about the current political climate and send it in for the opportunity to be published!

Congratulations to our winner of £25 and a copy of Political Fortunes...

Liba Ravindran from London

The Politics Of Today

The larger schemes in place put cyclones of distrust in rage
Feeling the cold of the cage whilst tapping to the beat of a knave
Clinton sees Trump in presidential White House where black is
the vote
A universal competitor for laughter shakes milk along the bones
Time after time we see a new face enter the screen
Only for their career to finish with a blemish, salvaged by the guise
of mystery
Roundabouts swing silence like merry coats filled to
prevent draughts
Vaccine to immunise strangers from illicit understanding of love
Failure to comply leads to resistance, enchanted by the
tigress’ snow
Flip the digital ages that makes pirates out of yellow suns
The game is the theory that leads us astray on a
discomforting path
Flirting with the future with weapons that protect our interests
for fun.

Forward Poetry's ethos has always been to act as a bridge to publication rather than a barrier. This, along with our passion for poetry and creative writing, has seen a humble family business evolve into the biggest publisher of new poetry in the world. We understand that poetry is subjective, that everyone writes in a different style and that what one person can love, another can hate! Our collections showcase a variety of themes, writing styles and poets from all walks of life. They are carefully edited and compiled to celebrate and complement the craft that all of our contributors enjoy poetry.
