The Forgotten

A poem

A blazing fire in a warehouse
Bangladesh does not make the news

Military coup in Myanmar
fallen from our television

The proxy war in Yemen
not mentioned anymore

Syria is barely mentioned
or the explosion in Beirut

Saudi Arabia hosting sport
buying British soccer clubs

Human rights not upheld
a blind eye cast across

Bahrain using tear gas and
cleansing it’s population

Refugees are moved about
like pawns on a chess board

Britain sends Red Arrows
‘soft power’ is complicity

I've read poetry since I was nine and have written creatively since I was fourteen (probably long before that). After writing book reviews and social comment, I decided I wanted to write poetry. I have no formal training, but I surround myself with poets and their writing. I am honing my craft.
I have two published collections which I don't feel good about, but have been published by and other publications. I live on the south coast of England with my daughter. I am seriously ill.
