In a Flash

In a flash,
We have broken
Away from our
Moorings.
We are adrift
On the ship
Of lies and deceit
So open and flagrant
They mock us
From land
And call us
To understand
That the lies
Are truths
And bid us
Find safety
In the
South China Sea
Or ports in
Other seas –
Overseas,
Away from our
Motherland –
Home shores
Which are not ours —
Not ours
Perhaps
Forevermore.
It could happen.
It has happened
Before —
Countries, thought
Secure,
Set adrift,
Evermore,
Evermore,
Evermore.
Pray for reasoned
Hearts,
Ethical minds
And the will
To do what a
Compass, map
And sextant might
Do to
Find the way
Back to shore,
To save democracy
Forevermore.
