Poem – ‘Shouting Politics’

ShoutingAs the election battle begins in Britain, the party leaders are fighting tooth and nail to get their various messages across, win all important votes and secure their place as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

However with so many voices chipping in (be it from party leaders, to MP’s, to back-benchers to the media), smaller parties growing in popularity, backstabbing, bitching, name calling and finger pointing rife, the whole process has already started descending into the inevitable cacophony of white noise that renders so many people ambivalent and apathetic.

Here’s a short poem about the process:

Shouting Politics

The man in the blue shouts: “KEEP US IN!”
The man in the red shouts: “VOTE ME, NOT HIM!”
The man in the blue shouts: “OUR PLAN’S HOT!”
The man in the red shouts: “NO, IT’S NOT!”

The man in the blue shouts: “BRITAIN’S BETTER OFF!”
The man in the red shouts: “YOU’RE JUST A TOFF!”
The man in the yellow shouts: “WE’RE HERE TOO!”
The man in the purple shouts: “LEAVE THE EU!”

The man in the blue shouts: “HE’S NOT STRONG!”
The man in the red shouts: “YOU’RE PLAIN WRONG!”
The man in the blue shouts: “LET’S UP WAGES!”
The man in the red shouts: “WE’VE BEEN WAITING AGES!”

The man in the blue shouts: “I TELL THE TRUTH!”
The man in the red shouts: “SHOW ME PROOF!”
The man in the green shouts: “PLANT MORE TREES!”
The man in the purple shouts: “IMMIGRATION FREEZE!”

The man in the blue shouts: “BUILD MORE HOMES!”
The man in the green shouts: “BUY MORE GNOMES!”
The man in the red shouts: “KEEP MONEY HERE!”
The man in the purple shouts: “MAKE MINE A BEER!”

The man in the blue shouts: “KEEP THE RICH RICH!”
The man in the red shouts: “TIME TO SWITCH!”
The man in the blue shouts: “DO YOU BELONG THERE!”
The man in the red shouts: “OH, HELL YEAH!”

The man in the blue shouts: “WE WORK FOR YOU!”
The man in the red shouts: “THAT’S NOT TRUE!”
The man in the blue shouts: “FOUR MORE YEARS!”
The man in the purple shouts: “FOUR MORE BEERS!”

The man in the blue shouts: “WE MUST MAKE CUTS!”
The man in the red shouts: “ARE YOU NUTS?!”
The man in the blue shouts: “CHOP, CHOP, CHOP!”
The man in the street shouts: “MAKE IT STOP!”
