Defying the Ministry of Truth and Thought Police

Posted: February 5, 2017 in urban poems

Following a certain presidential election sales of dystopian novels have exploded, especially George Orwell’s 1984. So this weekend at Toads, we’re taking Orwell’s book as a theme for a 55 word poem- see http://withrealtoads.


has now
been banned.
No rhymes at the
end of lines. Shows how
much they know. So despite any
first impressions this is geometry. Or.
A drawing of a mountain. Or. A one dimensional
pyramid. These dystopian law makers don’t seem to
realise that poetry is in the heart. And seen through the eyes.


  1. I love your pyramid and its message.

  2. Marian says:

    Hah! This is geometry. GEOMETRY. Love it.

  3. Glenn Buttkus says:

    We certainly were in like mind at dVerse today–love this rant, brother.

  4. Kathy Reed says:

    Poetic…without any hint of ‘drinking’ 😉
