Whose Offence?


No one takes offence
Unless they’ve already built one
Which furthermore
They demand that you not cross

Most curious of all
They are seldom more than vaguely aware
Of any of this

Apart of course
From their justified offence

  6. Is this ever the truth, Ben. Not building offence is a difficult thing, but Betty is a wise, wise woman. A great poem.
