Requisite Words 14 – Welcome to 2020?

We haven’t had the most auspicious start to the new decade. This episode we share two poems that might offer, respectively, a challenge to critical awareness and a gentle exercise in empathy.

Featuring “Porphyria’s Lover” by Robert Browning and “Dulce et Decorum Est” by Wilfred Owen.
