Peaceful Protest!

He himself was there for the peaceful protest

no intention of causing violence

until a large group in masks carrying weapons

held in leather-covered hands

yet soon found himself there betwixt the battle

his conscience it did rattle!

 

Good humour was amongst the many around

with the purpose of protest

but by peaceful endeavour was their intent

families the young and elderly

together to express their joint disagreement

between them an even temperament!

 

Police kept well back joining in with the activity

almost a carnival atmosphere

weather was good many onlookers waved happily

until the first foul language heard

as chunks of paving slabs flew passed their heads

with the start of anarchy threads!

 

Calm organised protest became a screaming mob

children pushed falling scared

parents trying to protect their brood panic-stricken

barriers became lethal weapons

nobody was immune from brutal abuse or aggression

and growing scenes of oppression!

 

No more a family event of sympathetic mutual protest

as blows hit damaging human bodies

vicious uncontrollable violence as the mob surged

dispersing cries of pain and despair

placards now trampled under steel toe capped boots

rapidly returning to their tribal roots!

 

Pepper spray thrust into the mix no smiles but tears

uncontrollable hatred as body fluids spilt

camera crews watched eager for the thugs to perform

law and order became hard to enforce

that moment of genuine purpose was now totally lost

the chance of genuine dissent tossed!

 

The young man could only run with rest of the crowd

stopping with a laceration above his eye

smoke now lingering over the scene like a shroud

as the evil our freedom did deny!

Special Day!

That special day has finally arrived

plans made hoping all is well

beginning of our adventure together

preparations completed ready

a nervous groom waits for his bride

standing nowhere to hide!

 

Soon she will walk down the aisle

two people to be joined

music starts to play nerves are taut

relieved as she is here

now together for that moment stand

promises a kiss hand in hand!

 

Behind family and friends sit watching

now smiles on your faces

turning to congratulations and praises

signing the register married

feeling of relief cameras start clicking

your married the clock is ticking!

 

Realising now two families are united

everybody happy and delighted

their perfect love match and marriage

or divorce hate then disengage!
