This is the musicality poem that I have been asked to create for my degree in creative writing. All feedback welcome.
For those in silken slipknots
pulled over zips and cotton,
marking ballots red blue or yellow
though unschooled and colourblind.
For those whose cubes arks and crosses
profess to teach and decorate,
and guide blindly without fact or truth
to blight, blood and reverent apathy.
For those spreading the grey contagion
amongst the elders, grain and knot,
sweeping amber, crisp, and stem away
for monoliths of metal and glass.
For those who look and turn away
magnanimously scratch their names,
and promise numbers on coded leaf
declaring good deeds be done that day.
For those who brag of bang and boom
and calculate two over four,
and theorise, synthesise, analyse, and demonise
and stand beyond creation pagan lore.
So spider spin your nickel net
and string by string protect from harm,
those who bark no prayer nor read
nor exist unwatched, nor follow law.
