Poppy Bullard: Cardboard’s Apathy – a sonnet


Why must I face so much abuse from you?
You, who take me from my natural form
And twist my outward appearance into politics.
May I not be left alone?
My views are compromised; I cannot show
How much I loathe student politics, rife
With smear campaigns. Who cares? Who needs to know?
No one. I was designed to transport veg.
Please leave me to my non-partisan role,
I only want to be useful storage.
Parading me on the campaign trail
Leaves me feeling “boxed” in. Cruel irony!
But even though I’m full of apathy,
Nothing could make me vote for Tom A-C.
