rattling in the moist breeze on a historic evening of words surrendering in the mouths of politicians in sombre dress
grey hair dyed dark and tasteful ties with moderate knots
are the co-ordinates of sincerity in the eradication of war
Telly dressed leaders
- consigned to the history of a passionate cause lining pockets of co-operation in the equality of flags and parades -
become a jumble of yesterday's news holding the chips for tommorow's game
of cold coiled reality, torqued to a level of trust constantly tied, tested and untethered by events which depart and return with the simplistic consistency of two tribes lying in wait for a sign of belief
in each other's right to live on a land rich in the conflicting songs of a patriot dead who died for truth and lies put into their heads through centuries of silent wrongs and bloodthirsty rights.
