Do I dare say–?

People – oh no,

Do I dare say,


Excuse me, everything is rather pressing.

Where’s the space? Let alone the time…

A glimmer of solidarity

Is swept with the addition of a

Branded string of letters.

The words – Those words;


Victims of a heart and soul,

Perpetrated by an absence

Then, by a presence; pointed fingers don’t lie.


People – oh no,

Did I dare say

“Our Own!”
