I am lost amongst the words
as the blurred images
rush to the surface
and I replay them in full colour
whilst this page lies in black and white.
These tears are seismic,
measure them on the Richter scale,
ask scientists to analyse the data
and report back on their lack of statistical significance,
their minor impact,
the fracking continues.
Today, news broke of a police officer
who raped a thirteen year old girl
but all I hear on Radio 4
is Brexit, Brexit, Brexit.
Deal or no deal
will make no difference
to a country most in need
of an exit from ourselves.
