Two years ago, September 2013, I wrote a piece titled “A Strong and Stiffly Worded Letter Should Do The Trick” – it was a rant-poem-letter written as a strong reaction to images on social media of dead children in bombed schools. Here is the 2015 version, this time a reaction to these images of their brothers and sisters washed up on European beaches.
I have mixed ‘Army Dreamers’ by Kate Bush with ‘Metamorphosis Five’ by Philip Glass with sounds of my voice, my type writer and the sea.
