The following poem, by Adam Horovitz, is highly pertinent to the strained and uneasy times in which we are living. It speaks directly to the ludicrousness of hate, but it also points to a way forward. One of the things apparent in the last week, has been how hard it is to challenge hate-speech without just shouting angrily back across the divides. The first half of this poem expresses the rage, but the second half opens the door to something else entirely, which is exactly what we have to do.
In The Name Of… (it’s a sweary poem, you may want to check the words before you listen if you’re concerned about who else may be going to hear it…)
