Spotlight: Pendraig

Hi All


It's a great day to share with you the work of an individual I find highly talented. Today - on the Jimmy Broccoli page and website - it is an honor to share the poetry of Pendraig with you!


I was first introduced to the writings of Pendraig only a few months ago - and immediately became a fan.


In Pendraig's own words:

Many thanks to Jimmy for the invite to share his bright Spotlight, he writes with passion and insight and it’s a delight to be on the same page.


Since creating my poetry page last summer and beginning sharing my writing with the world, I have been fortunate to connect with many talented writers and the wonderful poetry community has been so welcoming and supportive. I’ve been writing for a few years now and intend to string together my first collection this year. For my part I write about things that resonate with me - I feel, I think, I write, words find me - I hope these words resonate with you and thank you for reading, Pendraig the poet.



Here are two poems by Pendraig - and I'm certain you'll love them as much as I do! ____

Purple Hearts


Red eyes Blue tears More lies

More fears


You red They blue Nothing said

Remains true


Blue eyes Red blood More lies

No good


Whether red Wether blue Talking head

Different cue


Divided state Living in Fed hate

Look within


You them We us Women men

Minus plus


Red blues Blue reds Different hues

Purple heads


Surely find When mixed Colour blind

Be fixed


Purple hearts Millions dead People apart

Unite instead

Capitalclysm


Private property predominantly owned by the wealthy, they’re doing nicely thanks with stocks and bonds and friends in banks


A self interest band guided by an invisible hand, invest their treasure without regard for the many nor any sociopolitical pressure


Competition is fiction when it doesn’t exist, as massive monopolies persist, producers dismissed if they try to resist


Market mechanics fixed and centralised, no surprise prices capped high, wages capped low, consumers buy with less to show


Freedom of choice between a rock and hard place, the sickened poverty stricken at the coalface, only rodents can win a rat race


Expanded role of government protecting business mates, an environment where citizens are criminalised by the police state


Capitalism, corruption, producing pollution, disparities and inequalities at the expense of our ecosystem and inevitably cataclysm
