Confusion



This is written in response to an image from ‘Words for Wednesday’ (yes, I know it’s Friday.) ‘Words for Wednesday was started by Delores and now is hosted by various bloggers. The aim is to encourage you to write – a poem, a story, a song or whatever comes to you – using some or all of the prompts.

This week’s prompts are two photographic images supplied by Lissa. I chose the second as it looks as confused and hazy as the future of UK after Brexit!








My offering is a poor effort, much like the Prime Minister’s ‘deal’. You will find other and better responses here.
                            

Confusion 


All is confusion,
Trade in seclusion,
Empty delusion,
There’s no conclusion.


Some shout ‘sedition!’
Bring back tradition.
Ignore the suspicion
We need a magician
To make a decision.

  1. Well a rhyming commentary to the sorry states of England is no mean feat. Welcome back to the challenge.

    1. Thank you! Everyone's got a solution, from the humblest to the highest. I just can't see how we get past this impasse. David Cameron has a lot to answer for - there surely could have been better ways to unite the Conservatives. As for Labou - they're even more split.

  3. That nine word poem is a great commentary. You would need nine pages to address the state of affairs in the US. I like the idea of using a photo as a prompt.

    1. I can't imagine how people are surviving the blackmail effort by the Orange One. There seems to be unrest in every corner of the world . . . sigh.

  4. Nice to see you on blogger again ! I don't think you need a magician only logical thinking ! Try to buy fresh oranges or bananas if they have to stay for hours or days because of filling in border documents, by the time they arrive, they are not fresh anymore, lol !

  5. Thank you! People (some people) are beginning to panic. It's not as if we're at war . . .

  6. Your poem certainly reflects the worry and confusion you are going through with Brexit. We are having a HORRIBLE time with our infantile president.

  7. So far The Orange One's blackmail isn't working but I really feel for all those thousands of people who are struggling to live. What a pillock he is!
