Maybe I shouldn’t listen to what’s on the TV



So this poem is not wonderful, full of metaphor, simile or other poetic devices. This poem is simply me sitting at the computer and slowly getting angry at what the person pictured here was saying.


Tony Abbott Talks


opposing gay marriage

avoiding the truth?

slipping and sliding

around the words

talking about things

he doesn’t understand


‘not wanting to be judgemental’

he says, ‘wants people

to have a range of options’

but has stated abortion

is morally black and white


says that was in the past

and taken out of context

interview over –

the truth is still out there

somewhere . . .
