Till We Torment Trouble
Till-we the gatekeepers-show courage
by John Sensele
To quench the thirst for domestic violence
That plagues many a marriage and its carriage
Condemnation and castigation greet our stout silence.
Till-we the stakeholders-promote perseverance
To blanch broken bridges
That plunge us in a trance
We won't scale and subdue rampart ridges.
Till-we the foot soldiers-vow to rid
Our lives of ineptitude
Acceleration and momentum will wield
Powers to paralyse both our fortitude and latitude.
Till-we the salt of the Earth-bruise ruses
To embark on informed initiatives
That drive and thrive crucial cruises
We won't pander to prerogatives.
