The Friday Poem: ‘The Survivor Series’ by Michael Hall

New verse by Dunedin writer Michael Hall.


The Survivor Series


Jeff, I used to watch

the show

Jeff, I liked the first two well enough

I suppose

Jeff, I came back for a later season

Jeff, one day

instead of the island

it will be the planet

you will be voted


The tribe has spoken


Michael Hall, 2017
