For National Poetry Day 2020

Poetry is my lover,

Politics is my wife.

Pleasing them is the driving force,

That governs my job and my life.


Though not an easy option,

It’s a privilege and a thrill.

Pushing Art to its limit,

To help change a Law, or Bill.


Poetry has a resonance,

It reaches out to us all.

Challenges, inspires and amuses,

It holds us in its thrall.


Art can make a difference,

In the way we think and act.

Express the things we need to say,

Make Equality and Justice fact.
