Get Along With You

Stick Your Neck Out ~ Philip Brent

Stick Your Neck Out ~ Philip Brent

All of us
Pawns
In a world
Full of
Sound and
Fury
With overtones
Undertones
Key changes
Abrupt screams
Staccato bullets
Muffled by
Frail flesh
Silenced forever
Leaving
Rivulets red
Brains, gore, guts
Belying any
Intelligence
Fellow feeling
Promoting
Hatred
Shouted at us
Until
We go mad
Forget
The tragedy
Is not
Intolerance
Paranoia
Fear
Violence
But our failure
To remember
Most people
Get along
Yet
We change nothing
