I commented on
the common use
of vision as a metaphor
for understanding

"Yes", you replied
"I see what you mean"

Nadia Whittome MP's Maiden Speech

Nadia Whittome MP

I made Nadia Whittome's maiden Commons speech into a poem. Here it is:

"I'm here through solidarity 
and hard work in my town
I want to say to Nottingham:
'I will not let you down'

I'll represent this burning earth
- a planet we must save
To speak up for a generation
outward-faced and brave
