Politician’s Truth

“It’s stuffed !” said
the Prime Minister to
the Transport Minister.
Indeed he spoke the truth.
The cameraman beside them
panned down through the
helicopter windows to
smashed up miles of
coastline down below.

Tonnes of fractured rock
in countless cascades
overflowed over road and
railway snaking over the
rocky shore fringing
jagged steep mountains.

Proof of the politician’s truth
was more easily seen than usual.
