Broken Crockery – Written Monday 7th September 2020 (Aged 45)

Broken Crockery

it is easy to rail against the world
when your fragility
is like broken crockery
too much to handle
every government feels like a hooligan
or an intentional vandal
the safety you crave
we all crave,
looks well buried
in the perfectly dug grave
i do not mean to mock your efforts
or your belief
but i do wonder
what problems are you chewing over
and what other things may need your teeth
but, externally,
the cold comfort of chaos
and fatalist approach
leave us in a place
where, at least, we can feel beyond reproach
it is easy to rail against the world
when your fragility
is just like broken crockery
