They always get away with it – a poem

They always get away with it

 

They always get away

Leaving the others

To pick up the tab.

 

They organise and plan

But leave others

To do the dirty work.

 

They work in governments

In cosy offices

Behind closed doors.

 

They decide who is the enemy

And tell us the people

Who we are to despise.

 

They bomb the innocent

In the quest for victory –

Collateral damage.

 

When the dust has settled

And the blame is laid

They plan the next job.

 

Opher – 3.2.2019

 

 

The people who end up in front of the courts are rarely the true villains. The people who decide policy and carry out the planning are invisible. They quietly work in offices.

They wriggle off the hook while others get the blame.

I'd like to hear from you...
