TITLE: Trap
By Helen Murray

 SEND A PRIVATE COMMENT
 SEND ARTICLE TO A FRIEND

Just a bit of nonsense poetry really. When I first began in faithwriters someone mentioned "Point of View" and I didn't know what that meant. I asked for, and received, an explanation! Since "Challenge" was in abeyance that week, this is what happened!
I found a friend in netland,
And she is a writer too.
Since there is nothing to write on this week
We’ve nothing left to do!

We’ve given ourselves a challenge,
A poem to get us through.
So I’m coming up with this one,
Expressing no point of view.

Now POV is the purpose
Of every writer’s art.,
And so not having a POV
Would break a writer’s heart..

So we’re in trouble, my friend and I,
No topic, no point of view,
And this is a record in the writer’s world,
It’s something that’s cool and new!

For how can there be an art, my friend,
If there is no point of view?
There is such an art, a practiced one,
It’s the politician’s cue.

The politician’s a man of sorts,
With nothing to say all day,
And he says it at length, and with vigour as well,
For that is the polly’s way.

For if ever a polly had something to say,
He’d be skinned alive in a frenzy
By the very people who voted him in,
Who’ll shout him down as a pansy.

They’ll scream of infringement of human rights
If ever he changes the law
In order to stop some new form of crime
From getting a leg in the door.

The polly cannot have a point of view,
For theirs is the lone possibility,
But my friend and I are working hard
To negate such fierce hostility.

If we negate a non-POV,
Like doubting one’s doubts, it’s full circle.
So we’ll not have a week with no writing to do
But speak loud to the great debuncle!


We’ll iron out that twist of fate
That put humanists up in office,
We’ll do nothing but watch them fall in the trap
They successfully set for others!
