Poem: Where was I, where will you be?

When they came for you

was I with you there

or did I find an last-minute excuse

to be elsewhere?


When they targeted our youth

Where exactly was I

while you threw tiles from a roof

and rained screaming slate from the sky?


When they rounded up our weak

did you see me standing tall

or was I in the comfy seats

at home, avoiding it all?


When they come for me

where will you be?

Will we fight together this enemy

or will I be stood there, lonely?
