Outrage

Outrage

Every day now, someone
amongst the suits and ties
gets up and
says something.

Something
simple,
sensible,
and inconceivable.

Something
obvious,
overdue,
and improbable.

Someone sensible,
someone overdue,
someone outrageously
decent.

People lift up their heads and
listen as if
life
were meant to grow and thrive.

For Jeremy Corbyn MP

“Jeremy Corbyn does not need to be theatrical because he is charismatic.

He makes a few simple statements and a thousand people jump off their sofas. It is not his policies that got him to the top but his personality!”

Christina Egan

Letter to the Editor, Evening Standard (London), 22. September 2015

(Please note I had written: “not his policies alone”!)
