Through its ticks and tocks

sway generations creating history –

his-story, my-story, their-story. Stories

scripted in sorrowful sighs, jubilant aahs,

exasperated oofs, unforgiving oops...

individual and cumulative.

 

tales of shame and bigotry,

of nations and world communities

of hair-raising abominations,

 cruelties and depravity

of inhumanity and indignities

of legendary kindness and love

 

gilded narratives will get tarnished

elevated monuments will crumble.

Time will continue to chime

Like Ozymandias, all bloaters and gloaters,

the persecuted and persecutors         

in dust and ashes will evenly mingle

 

Each one buffeted between the swings

of the equalising pendulum

will be chipped down, atomised, levelled

who will then tell king from pauper,

believer from infidel?

Who the tyrants, who the heeled-under?
