I’ve just read the poem one of my dear poet friends posted for this poetry venture. On reading Colleen’s fine poem, I’m cringing about my effort. But it’s a challenge to write a poem every day in April, there’s  no requirement the poem has to be wonderful!

So here goes:


Wanting to write a poem,

with theme already chosen.

What will happen?

What will it mean?


Gina provokes thought

and emotion,

Gina promotes own

best interests


Go Gina, go

as far away as you can,

we don’t want to follow

where you may lead us.


You’ve followed the money,

your dreams of the outback

are a nightmare

to me.
