We live in an age where voices of dissent are curbed because they question those in power. There is a lack of any effective tool to articulate an effective challenge. In a world where the media and the social media are controlled by vested interests, where safe spaces are increasingly decreasing, we have turned to poetry. Because poetry, like political language is rarely spoken without intention.
