Before our births, void of choice, we became part of the story,
During our lives, with a choice, we can't escape the story,
After death, abandoned choice, the story continues to seep.
- Andrew Mansell

Broken Window

Get out of the rain, tells the naked man
Turn on your headlights, tells the driver of a black car
Eat your vegies, tell the parents of a concrete garden
Support the environment, tell the directors of oil corp
I’m tired, you tell but you sleep with the light on
Mind your own business,
I’m told as I look through a broken window.

Andrew Mansell, September 2014.
