Poem – Shiny

‘Look at all this shiny stuff we’ve won!’

Said the president.

‘Our trophy cabinets are filled to the brim – there’s never been a time or place in all of human history when they’ve been quite so full!’

Behind him, the cups and shields gleamed.

Around him, there were no more staff to hear his heartening words.

And outside, there was just the dust and that was all there was.
