My Monday Metrical Musings #101

gold padlock locking door


What was unsafe then?

Forced to castrate as palace eunuchs
Conscripted to carry guns while still a child
Kidnapped as sex slaves, never to smile.

What is unsafe now?

Hearing stuff you disagree with
That threatens to humiliate
To make you question your own take.

What will be unsafe next?
Having anyone whose beliefs are different
Within a hundred feet of you?
To accept things that are universally true?

From identity
To ideology
To insanity.


Is that what “unsafe” will end up being?
