Hi, in Pauls Poetry Playground https://playground.poetry.blog/2022/11/20 he has asked for contributions to this month’s and the last of this years Imaginarium group poem. The theme being the year 2022, we are asked to provide up to 12 lines beginning with either “This was the year of…” or “This was the year that…”. Here is my contribution, thanks for looking 🙂
This was the year of discovery and recovery
Twenty Twenty Two
but for some, a year of death and misery
a year of hypocrisy, invasion and migration
of numerous variants and vast inflation
while we observed the effects of climate alteration
and now there’s controversy with the World Cup situation.
In the UK we’ve had a glut of Prime Ministers
and the cost of electricity is bleeding us dry
there was joy in June celebrating the jubilee
but tears within months when we had to say goodbye
as a nation we joined together in mourning
but now we have hope with the rise of a king.
