947 - Fence Sitting


Poet’s United Mid-Week Motif: Neutrality/Objectivity.


Fence Sitting

For those on the fence:
Objectivity is claimed
But is not displayed.

No-one is neutral—
Saying nothing speaks volumes:
Tacit approval.

  9. Silence is sometimes golden. At other times, it is cowardly.

  10. And sometimes, that silence is, fear and pain speaking out, as a victim of abuse.
