Poetry 365 Challenge: A Poem A Day - 2015

I started this on Inkvite, then Wattpad, now I'm trying out Movellas!

There is no real prize as such, just the adventure of expression, and bettering ourselves as writers.

I'm no poetry expert but used to enjoy writing poems in school. So thought this could be fun and a good way of improving writing skills.

There are no major rules, you can write in any style of poetry you like, as long and short as you like.

I will set set various topics or themes, but again, you can follow your own path if they don't appeal to you.

For example, I think the first poem we write should be on the theme of "New Year's Resolutions" posted on 1st Jan 2015.

I will post the current theme at the top of this page regularly.

Hope you guys like this idea please leave comments letting me know if you support it.

Please share on social media and with your followers if you feel so inclined.

I'm going to use the tag 365 in this so we can find each other's work.

Note: my poems are only semi-biographical!

Title: Offence

Hold the front page
Someone might be offended
Watch what you say
People can get demented

Hold the phone
I class that as hate speech
Ban that political song
Don't let the man preach

That comedian upset me
Tell him what he can and can't say
I have a voice and it will be heard
Nobody will stand in my way

I saw an out of context quote
I was outraged by this on social media
Now that guy has lost his job
I looked it up on wikipedia

Edit the books and dictate to the artists
Freedom isn't free you know
I don't care where all this is leading
As long as I'm putting on a good show
