Gauntlet
What chance do I have
In this court
Where pride and shame
Drive the verdict?
What defence do I have
Against selective truths
Invective?
What chance do I have
With a jury
Of buried memories
The admittance of pretence?
The battle ends
The drama, done
Does it feel
Like victory to you
Having declared triumph
While I have laid
The gauntlet
Left the fight
Never begun?
I could ask
Where the promises went
To die?
Where forever
Was lost
Before it arrived?
I could defend
Say my say
Present my case
Instead of feeling erased.
To my chagrin
I do nothing
With reluctance
I accept
That in the court of pride and shame
Nothing much survives.
