“Children of the Revolution – A Lifetime of Change”
I suppose I could have called this Challenge “The Times they are ‘a’ Changin”’ because that is really what it is about, but I’ve always preferred the sequins and tin foil of the Glam Rock years, and so Revolution it is.
But in truth Revolution is right as we are living – have all grown-up – in such a varied and dramatically changing time, socially, politically and certainly with the explosion of technology, that it is almost hard to find the adjectives needed to cover the way the world has been changed over the last few decades.
But you are poets and finding a way is in the job description, so that is the Challenge. Tell us the story of the Private Revolution YOU have experienced in the times between when you were a child and now. Focus on moments, not the bigger picture, and together we can paint a portrait of the Revolution, Baby!
Write a Poem that describes a Private Revolution, a major zeitgeist ahem) change in your life. The poem can take any form, be any length, you decide.
