Listen to us by Ruth Nunn

Listen to us by Ruth Nunn

“We’re the party of prospect
Just listen to us here.
We’re the ones to elect,
The way forth is quite clear.”

“No! Pure claptrap and twaddle,
They’re talking so queerly,
They’re in such a muddle.
Disaster, quite clearly!”

“Oh, but they’ve both got it wrong
In every last detail.
Make either of them strong,
The country would soon fail!”

“Listen only to us now,”
The three of them all shout,
“We will soon show you how
We are what it’s about!”

“We’re the way forward, hear us,”
Each urges with passion,
“True action, not their fuss.
We’re more than just fashion.”

  1. Hello Ruth Nunn,

    I’m the newbie, David. Poetry is definitely not my strong point. Having said that, I do like the aa bb metre of ‘Listen to me.’. It has a good, almost jingoistic rhythm. Are you political? If so, I imagine you might consider writing slogans for political parties.
