BRICK COLLECTIVE POEM WRITING
BRICK began back in February 2019, as a group of left-wing students at the University of Sussex seeking an independent media outlet which would allow us to anonymously publish a wide range of content, ranging from opinion pieces to poetry and the arts.
Through our participation in Covidarty Festival, we aim to unite our voices as one and share our vision of a post-pandemic world in the medium of a collaborative poem which will be published on our platforms. We aim to encourage and foster a conversation around what could be achieved with the window of opportunity we now have.
Thank you all for your participation, here is the final poem!
IN OUR POST PANDEMIC WORLD
Love, light and kindness
Solidarity through happiness
And happiness through solidarity
We want a world
Free of cops
Free of borders
Free of hate
A reality whereby mutual aid is normalised,
Sought after, cared for
Another world is possible
One without neoliberal gain, pain
We can create something new
A vision to pierce the heavens
(much like winning a jackpot on slotting three sevens)
Peaceful, inclusive interactions
Between you and me
