Dug In

DUG IN

“I do not need proof.
My beliefs are strong enough.”
A slippery slope.

Danger Words

DANGER WORDS

Listen close, there, in the air
Not a blaring Tannoy, oh no
But sibilant, subliminal, insidious
Crawling in under the radar
The words are simple
But in context …

“Should”
“Ought”
“Need”
“Must”

Snakes, spiders, formication
Echoes of jackbooted lockstep
They saw what was happening
And looked the other way

Another drop in the ocean
Human beings, human doings
Living like temporary strangers
Another brick in the wall
Building, brick on brick on brick
A prison for people who will never go home again

And in agony those final words
Those simple words
Let my people go
