My response to dVerse Poets Pub Poetics: What Are You Afraid Of?
This evening Mish has asked us to think about fear.
I will never encounter a real shark,
although Jaws gave me nightmares,
still makes me jump.
And living in the countryside,
I’m unlikely to meet an aggressive drunk
or witness a late night
What really scares me
is what I see
every day on TV:
and the decline of humanity.
