I hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend and are in the mood for some poetry… Enjoy!
It is not something you could define on paper,
meticulously planned, rigorously ruled,
though might have more success with a dictator;
someone to demand, reject and approve.
On the other hand, the impact may be greater
if there was a clear punishment for the fool;
a trial and outcome set by the pater
who is the supreme; never overruled.
Yet often, there is no convicted traitor
summoned to the stands; named, shamed, called
what he is. A liar, but too, a creator
of this very design. He ripped open the wound
that had never healed and burnt her, broke her,
bled her out; the villain yet the vindicator.
