Where is the Squeeze? – Written Sunday 28th June 2020 (Aged 45)

Where is the Squeeze?

where is the moral limit
where is the squeeze
when do they say no
when does this ease?
when does it tear
from its constant crease
when will the moral compass
point to the truth once more
when will honesty so frozen
suddenly start to thaw
when will they stand up
to immorality in their midst
when will the wheel turn
and suddenly click
how much self interest
will pick up this tab
how many orchards must go bad
when was power ever worth this price
deadly days,
they have us in a vice
where is the end to such blatant bad
how can value, morality, ethics
be so poorly clad

James Garratt – Saturday 28th June 2020
