Here You Stand

Here you stand

At the top of it all

Ransacker, poach monger

Hornswogglesworth

All long to see you fall

Cracks and leaks open up each time you reach

For all those stars which will only burn your hands

Terribly tragically in a tawdry sort of style

Invariably dastardly to make it all worth while

For nobody really loves you

Until they can stand above you

Pat your hair and muss your head

Call you big guy, mac, sport

And leave you lying for dead

So what do you do

When the pedestal falls on you

Barbara Ivusic: I really loved this poem. Perfect use of imagery to outline the digital age. I loved the image of the olive branch and how it is posted for all to see but no one can touch it. Everything you describe is so true that it has become common knowledge yet no one acknowledges it anymore. I look forward...
