These People – Written Tuesday 5th June 2001 (Aged 26)

These People

these people,
like blocks of stone
statues on a mineral throne
these people,
legions of doom
part of the sonic boom
these people,
marching only to fads
in their disruptive armour,
they are clad
a politicians woman
a seasoned reason
begging on its knees
to be excused from treason
these people,
like the black bins of society
drunk on their sobriety
living in another reality
these people

James Garratt – Tuesday 5th June 2001
