I enjoyed a discussion on the theme of power this lunchtime with Jermaine Croft from Year 10 which we agreed seemed particularly pertinent today following the victory of Donald Trump to The White House.
Jermaine, an enthusiastic poet then offered this poem to mark the occasion!
It can grow into things, strong and evil,
Sometimes cruel, wrong, inhuman, illegal.
It can never be with one place, hand or person.
At the end of wars teaches a valuable lesson.
Power may crawl into evil's hands,
But can open a gate to angel's lands.
Can make a better world full of success,
But too often creates an ugly mess.
Some cannot be trusted with Power,
Because they make people shake, tremble, cower...
Supreme power cannot always be attained.
As it fragments...yet within our world...
Will never truly be contained.
