Carol Ann Duffy’s Poem On The Election: Campaign


Carol Ann Duffy, the poet laureate has penned a poem relating to the recent general election named Campaign. 

Originally published in The Guardian, here is the poem, let us know what you think!

“In which her body was a question-mark

querying her lies; her mouth a ballot-box that bit the hand that fed. Her eyes? They swivelled for a jackpot win. Her heart was a stolen purse;

her rhetoric an empty vicarage, the windows smashed.

Then her feet grew sharp stilettos, awkward.

Then she had balls, believe it.

When she woke,

her nose was bloody, difficult.

The furious young

ran towards her through the fields of wheat.”
