sonnet to diversity-denying dictators by Andy Brown

new dictatorial edicts in the ‘free land’ from
blond-haired one decides new laws of prose;
no longer need for words or meaning he will
never comprehend or for empathy that is not
demonstrated. science and evidence banned,
no more talk of entitlement, forbids a fetus,
will not countenance transgender or use of
the word vulnerable to sit in official reports.
please do not be superior on this side of the
water; we are equally divisive drowning in
elitism, class, policies that practice hunger
and homelessness, poverty, predicaments
perpetuated, promulgated in Tory policies
designed to deceive and end communities.
