Borders – Written November 2015 (Aged 40)


close the borders
the shout goes up
but is this reality?
is it the only way to protect family?
maybe a safe and secure world
for your children comes from within
maybe retrieve self esteem from the rubbish bin
maybe a book or two,
on how selling yourself cheap to men
in the end gave your nothing
it was no great achievement

James Garratt – November 2015
