Nil By Mouth

Steve Pearson Poetry

Will we rage now
At the end of it
Too late, too late, too late
Too late for words
Against their shit
Too late for the welfare debate
No fairytales
No lives remade
As they falter beyond our walls
Our mouths closed
Their hopes betrayed
As we ignored their plaintive calls
Nil by mouth
Silent persecution
Following breadcrumbs to Tory lies
Will we rage now
For our absolution
In our sudden compassion disguise
