Headline Rhymes

With creative endeavours these days, we need to be quite militant
In portraying others’ lived experience, we can’t be too vigilant

If you want to write about someone who isn’t identical to you

‘Cause I know for a fact no one secured canine species approval

To think we think we could possibly know what our canine brethren think

Views on the news, delivered so smooth. This week’s inspired by:

Policing the Creative Imagination
