Honorable Mention Stephen Bell

Entertainment Law

To a bemused Troll lying beneath Chappaquiddick Bridge
For it was easily passed over in the belief of his conspiracy
This voyeur’s blue eye centred on an Hex induction hour
Allied collectives support the new sons of temperance.

The turmoil of ever shifting power collides with hope
The ferocity of change and the manner it deflates
An exchange of transparencies and difficulties convince
In the annals of power where two Libran's meet

The provenance of the pact gives re-style to the gun
Kill Teams are languishing in the hot countries of the Middle East
Retro shadows of the death squads of El Salvador
For your masters’ internet, this is your entertainment law

Stephen Bell dedicates this poem to Bill Hicks RIP and Jello Biafra.
