The Oppression 1
[by S. David] [art by Ilona Van Hoek]

Silence and
The peace overwhelms
Look look closely
Do you seen them
Motionless wound
Poised on the brink
It is too quiet
Too peaceful
Too sane
Too something
It cannot hold
A spring coiled
Naked his mind
Contemplates what
A grenade pin pulled
In his hand No
The proper meditation
Is the trigger will she
She can will she
Ease the trembling
The darkness in
His mind she turns to
Her guide her guru
She could if she would
Oppression comes in
Too many forms
And all feel all know
The weight of their lives
And another still
Watches the silence
All is peaceful as
In the seconds before
A grenade explodes
A trigger is pulled
Will it will she
