From the editor

We don't make a habit of editorialising, here at protestpoems. It is warranted on this one occasion, though, I feel.

The world's very foundations are shaking in this time, and all of us are busy preserving what we have left of our lives, always conscious that we are here but for the grace of whatever gods or faiths we follow.

I wanted to apologise for protestpoems becoming, to all intents and purposes, an irregular publication. That's because I also am exercising self-preservation in view of the state of the nations.

Thanks to all of you who keep reading protestpoems, and thanks to all our contributors. Please don't ever give up on us.

Richard Pierce-Saunderson
