A senior Trump advisor, Stephen Miller, sparked a furor last week when he dismissed the famous poem at the base of the Statue of Liberty. In response, The Guardian asked 21 poets: what type of poem would Trump like to see at the statue?
So I thought I'd have a go myself and here's my tuppence worth.
Not like the mighty woman with a torch,
who stood like a beacon of liberty and freedom,
now stands a craven, jackbooted coward,
to welcome the stuffed pursed,
pale of skin and supplicant.
Not for us, the sombre Sentinel cries,
the homeless and their vacant eyes,
nor those who are hounded by repression,
the teeming mass of shadowed complexion,
only influence, degrees and currency are welcome.
