Move Away, Jimmy Blue

I set this week's IP so I felt duty bound to attempt something. Saw the band play this song Monday last. We can all move away, of course we can, but some of us stay in the same place even though we've moved miles. Image author's own.

Antic Hay

Books were burned in Canada [Canada!] last week. In protest at depictions of indigenous peoples. Now, I'm not defending these depictions and if Canada's school libraries want to remove Tintin and others from their shelves, that's fine. I just disagree with people burning books, because people who burn books, as a better writer than me once said, often end up burning people. Anyway, here's this. I wrote it last time I got wound up about book burning.

Glad I got a chance to drop by.

I think you have a typo at line one. Do you need "a price at which" vice "a price in which"?

Gripping, cynical and grim. I loved it.

I believe you have a typo at line 16 "breath" vice "breathe".

 Personally I believe independence would be disastrous for Scotland. My poem is actually about the Little Englanders who have hi-jacked Britain and "Britishness" for themselves. You will have guessed that I voted remain.

What a shame the magazine folded. I expect that will be as familiar a story over the next year as it has been over the last. Fantastic that you chose to put your story here. I sincerely hope you're looking around for other magazines that might...
