Poetry is a knife that cuts language up
Language uses rules which poetry breaks
Language is a stake
We use language and language uses us
Language is a power
A power to use and a power to abuse
Who has the ‘right’ to use language?
Whose language has more status?
Politicians love language
They know language’s rules
And how to ‘bend’ language
To make it suit their aims
To keep their power
They hide from truth
But truth is too good for them
We know their lies
