White Paper

Why do I need to speak?

People all around me are tripping over their tongues

Why needs must I speak?

People are just speaking to spit out some mud

On someone’s white clothes.

Why ever should I speak?

Their minds are always made up

They turn a blind ear to my speech.

God gave papyrus

God gave leaves

God gave walls and stone

The earth to write

My poems. I’ve sequestered them.

Why should I speak?
