Us

Us.

Don’t tell me what we’ll do, or what we must –
who are ‘We’ and who’s your ‘Us’?
I recognise the urgent need
to redress inequalities
and examine history’s
stories which afforded me
voice and liberty
as a member of the ‘we’
those who’ve always had a voice
in the closed community
being one of ‘us’.

Self appointed, virtuous,
Leaders say it’s up to ‘Us’
To rewrite Others’ stories,
Legislate and orchestrate
Worthy change which affords ‘Them’
Governance by ‘Us’ again.

Don’t tell me what we’ll do, or what we must:
There’s no ‘them’ – no ‘we’ – just ‘us’.
