A preoccupation

The United Kingdom – which direction? Is there any detection Of a slight hesitation As all this political diction Is becoming an addiction HardBrexit, a continual affixation A convulsive sensation A preoccupation A bloggers’ fixation Journalists’ devoration No time for devocation Unable to form an illation Or a resolute speculation Submitting to trepidation For our Nation There is no sedation To the daily news digestion Just a torrent of unanswered questions And a snap General Election

I love the lines: "There is no sedation To the daily news digestion". A great piece Anne-Lise on the onslaught of information yet is any truth and problem solving being conveyed with 'real answers'. Excellent writing on a topical subject. lynnxxx

I'm in the U.S. but I heard about the "surprise" election coming up. Your poem was well crafted. I enjoyed reading this today.
