A Dig At The Right - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Authenticity counters deficiencies in other fields
in the re-creation of the smoking decades.

Actors and crew are chosen,
who actually smoke.

The coming ban
will end the smug reign
of the right
over the inspired.

The authentic
will lose their jobs

to the imaginative,
who will see
how to cover those decades

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Meditating on the lugubrious British TV series 'The Hour'.
