Political Energy

At the present time all the energy
is with the Right, not the Left.

To the pot-bellied talcum-powdered
body-politic of the Tory is attached

a nasty festering UKIP sore and
the rotting deliquescence of the Liberals

both of which give off
an energy of sorts.

Old Man Labour dozes, snoozes, sleeps
but cannot even raise a snore.

The Greens are fine
for sitting around with in fields

but soft-edged and un-forged
in coal or steel or grime

though in time I imagine
my own children turning to them

seeing their Dad
as some kind of old red dinosaur.

Richard Devereux is a political dinosaur from Bristol
