This election looks increasing unclear,
The race so close,
Not far but near
Unfamiliar colours broaden the spectrum,
Broaden the debate,
From Sturgeon’s claim to
Come in friendship to ukip’s hysterical hate
From the Tories cries of ‘Chaos and fear’
To Labour’s vision of cautious hope,
Of a brighter future within reach, near.
So if I was a prophet or a mystic with a crystal ball,
It looks too close to call,
But what’s crystal clear,
Is that the people more than ever have the power to
Have the power to choose hope or Fear.
