Blockbusters – A Poem

Nice!! Not into poetry but a great read!

Annika Perry


Today is the 21st National Poetry Day here in the UK with events taking place nationwide with flash-mobs of poetry readings, Blackpool lights ablaze with verse as well as schools around the country taking part in a Readathon. 

To celebrate the event I want to feature the work of a friend and new poet, Thalia Gust. I find her work astonishing on so many levels, at times ethereal and spiritual, then humorous, later down-to-earth. From the personable to the international.  Always a delight and I hope you enjoy and find the poem as rewarding as I do.


We have ‘Blockbusters’, ‘Hits’, ‘Bestsellers’

All aggressive words and little to do with Creation.

We grab some food, hit the sack, beat the record.

Where is the grace gone?


Pour souls, beaten to death

No succour to be had

Art and literature turned to weapons,

Stealthily harming us all.
