in poem •  last year 


Permanent vigilance banishes peace
Danger is everywhere rampantly astray
Defensive dominates anticipation
Only mistrust is trusted to say

Who knows which way is best
For fear to manifest itself Is phobic right, the way to vote
Or is its counter a better plight
Perhaps neither is blessed
Then what is fear’s antidote?

To receive a proper downing
Fear must have its drowning ways
Whatever consequence that might belay
So have someone there to share
A burden far too big alone to bear
