Last night we heard a voice of sanity,
Concerned about what’s right, not winning votes;
Someone prepared to show humanity
To those who flee to us in leaky boats.
As he deplored our ‘moat’ mentality,
Prepared to say we’re needlessly deranged,
I felt a lightening, a clarity,
As if the air and sea around had changed.
Lyn. Political Sword, 24/08/2010 Patricia, thankyou for your delightful two ‘pomes’. I admire your talent very much. Keep up the good work.
Jane 24/08/10 Patricia, another great poem. Thank you. Pinpoints what Oakeshott stands for in just a few words. His is a voice of reason in a storm of self-serving claptrap.
