Three poems from Campaign in Poetry

Winter 2015

Rachel Piercey and I decided to make Campaign in Poetry because we wanted to challenge voter apathy and engage with the state of democracy in the UK. The poems we assembled acknowledge the disillusionment felt by many would-be voters contemplating the people in power and social injustice in the UK and beyond, but, more pressingly, I think they make a case for greater empathy across society and for politics conducted on a human level.
