People Fear Change – Written Monday 29th March 2021 (Aged 46)

People Fear Change

people fear change
and despite the mess we live in
they would rather –
things stayed the same
and they will remain the same
until their front door
is being kicked off its hinges
they will only ever –
flirt around the fringes of change
because a majority of people –
would rather things stayed the same
and no matter –
what box is crossed
at the ballot box
and not matter the colour of their socks
a majority of people
are conservative by nature
protecting what they have
believing it is hard won
or part of a predetermined claim
and despite the mess we live in
many people –
would rather things stayed the same
they will be softly outspoken
with a preconceived moderate outrage
but not too much
and it will only ever change
when their front door –
is being kicked off its hinges
why should they whinge or complain
they are labour but conservative
and they would rather things stayed the same




James Garratt – Monday 29th March 2021
