Winner, Best Devon Poem 2010 - Steve Handsaker


Good v. Evil = No Contest

Halloween and the neighbour's on the doorstep,
fists full of certainty, eyes like conclusions,
says his army's unemployed, heard
you got some beliefs that don't smell too good.
Wait, you say, must be the boy you want and
when you turn the house is already a memory.

Seems there's so much shit cleared for takeoff and
nobody knows how to stop the fans.
