Someone's yelling fire in a crowded theatre
and there's 3 dead in Charlottesville.
If things had been different
we'd have been there to watch
knowing that this isn't Virginia. Or is it?
Or is it us all?
That we are what we think
the story well tell ourselves
that we tell each other
a program to function by
rules to guide us.
Have we strayed so far from North
that we cannot feel our way back?
or were we always at centre
and not knowing that it was down to us
not to hate
not to anger
not to fear
and that strength is in the stayed hand
no matter how righteous.
