Things we stand to lose

A hair clip or sticker

Unruly balloons and

Air in our tyres.

Buttons more than once

Our words and the sentences

we wish to form.

Each other or ourselves

An assortment of marbles and

Love last summer.

Rhyme, reason and rational

A cooling hue of calm

Security we endeavour to keep.

Decisions or choices

Freedom autonomously granted and

Athena’s justice.

The good who tread this earth

The pacifists with fire

Our humanity which knew when to

Stop.
