'Age of Anxiety' episode 1 'Who poisoned the Water'

Poetry Slabs are a group set up by John and Janet Haney to promote poetry in public spaces around West Norwood and Lambeth.
Here they present, with the help of Thomas Denhof, a look at a post- Brexit future using European poems from the 20th Century. This is the first of five episodes in a series called the 'Age of Anxiety'.
Episode 1:
Poetic evocations of cultural decay, political instability, and history’s slow baring of its unforgiving fangs, including Anna Akhmatova’s ‘Why did you poison the water’ – uncannily appropriate, perhaps, in the wake of the Skripal poisoning – and Basil Bunting’s ‘Aus dem Zweiten Reich’.
