Dread- 2018 - Poem by Jason Jackson

Ignorance, bravado, malice and shame
We've come to know you once again,
bad haircuts, poor suits and fake posturing
may not save us from the whirlpool ring

knife crime and terrorist threats,
wet beds and night sweats
charity vigils and false pigswills
food banks,3rd world war and debts

Topic(s) of this poem: fear
