MEDUSA

 

Written by J H Martin @ A Coat for a Monkey

 

I cannot speak

I have a legacy

 

Upheaval

And severance

 

No money

No service

 

No alternative

But to change

 

Not for the flesh

But for the earth

 

Chain

Cuff

Baton

Gun

 

They are not enough to stop

Not enough to calm

Not enough to reverse

What has already been done

 

My friend

 

Smile

 

Que sais-je?

 

That rope has been cut

 

This raft is adrift
