Poetry on the news

You’ve never had it so bad. Ian McMillan has been appointed ‘election laureate’ to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme. The site displays his work so far:

I love a good election
But am I the only one?
What happened to participation
Where’s it gone?
When the couch potato
Flicks the TV on
Then turns off the politics
And says it’s all a con?

No poetry yet then.
