Broken Chalice
























Gawd, am I really
supposed to be as
thick as they seem?


Some guy answering a 
yes or no question used
brand name’ arguments 


Was he advertising he’s 
between engagements or
seeking new employers? 


Or can I conclude he 
failed to sell himself
to the wider audience 


If politics is a commodity 
then I am way out of
sync – or so it seems 


I do know what I need 
and it ain’t platitudes
from obvious failures
 


But that is all you get 
these days – no-one tries
to mend the chalice
