New-age Punk.

Armed with their look

They’ve a gut full of fears,

Their anger disguised

Behind tattooed tears.

They hook youth to bring

New music to the masses,

To stir unrest amongst

those middle-classes.

Secretly it’s about

Statement and look,

under the guise of a

new-age punk book.

Courting social media

With Insta and Mix,

To highlight the movement

With moody selfies and glitz.

Power hungry fools

with political agendas

Infiltrate the movement

To fulfil their vendettas.

Soon they are castigated,

Pilloried as militant fools.

Credibility lost, they are

just punks without tools.

Another new direction for this have a go woman of words. Let me know if I grabbed the emotion and threw it out there. Maybe it is a step too far? Let me know I value your opinion.

  2. I think this is a very good and observant poem, Ellen. Poetry is a strong tool for voicing your opinions and you have used it well.
