Next – TB

26 Feb

The remains of the day,
What remains of the others?
So I am angry.
Because you had nothing to say.
They came for them,
And you sat comfortably,
Probably enjoying your day off.
They battered them,
Like chip shop fish.
They cut off their ears,
To feed to the dogs.
They abducted them from hospitals
And dished out their own treatment.
They sprayed bullets at those
Marching on parliament.
Did they strip and humiliate you,
Shove a knife up your arse?
If they haven’t already,
It’s because,
You’re probably next.
