FREE VERSE

by Greg Mackie

>>>>

They made it illegal to

stand in protest,

so now we walk

in parks –

silently.

>>>

There are four thousand of us –

lost children,

walking along wide alleys,

walking in circles,

on the grass

between the trees

and the flower beds.

>>>

The sun is shining bright

but the shadows are dark

and we know that,

very soon,

they shall make it illegal

to walk-

even silently.

>>>

We know that,

very soon,

they shall come

from beyond those trees,

and from among us  –

to break our ribs

and crush our fingers

and teach us to be patriots.

>>>>

They shall cut us down  –

and there shall be

no protest,

no sanction,

no international outcry.

>>>

The enemy,

the most vicious  –

the enemy,

the most destructive  –

is indifference.

    Very evocative piece. I watched ‘V for Vendetta’ yesterday. Reminds me a little of that…

    Nice, this would make a great anthem for anti-establishment movements. 😀

    Hat dies auf Wordlov Mordechaï rebloggt und kommentierte:
