#GE2015: Your reflections on the election in poetry and verse
There have been drinks around kitchen sinks,
Politicians have debated and parties were berated,
Who will win at the end of the day?
Who knows but we've got your poems on Have Your Say!
Here's a selection on the topic of the election:
Ian McMillan, poet, radio presenter and writer
Some manifestos are red, others are blue.
Vote 'none of the above'? Don't mind if I do.
Deal only with the issues that make a better life don't fight about religion,
I'll cut away your bluff and bluster and then make my decision.
Debate discussion country divides
You vote you win you lose
Careful who or what you choose
All spin & lies
All lies & spin
So who will win?
Green or Blue
One thing's sure
It won't be you!
They're at it again the p party crew,
we promise to fight for you and you.
Do we trust? Not sure. Vote for who
Labour are red, Tories are blue,
none of the parties offer anything new.
Use your vote to make a selection...
on who you'd like to win the general election.
Labour are red, the Tories are blue.
That's the only real difference. It's sad but it's true.
Election, election what a botheration.
People want solution not exploitation in a world of miss placed devotion.
Election time is nearly here, who to vote for?
They are all austere. More of the same for the next five year?
Party members in disguise.
Smiling suits touring clean streets.
Giving out made up figures.
To gullible nodding journalists.
A poem about the election
Could lead one to dismay
As I'm prone to waffle
It'd take me over a day
Unless I make it a tweet
Have Your Say poetry by Sherie Ryder
