This week’s prompt: Write a ‘snap judgement’ poem
Delicate and sensitive souls
Crack easily under life’s demands,
After burying them into the pile
Of things to be tolerated and/or ignored,
So that a strain so long suppressed
Must inevitably break and snap
Into the form of frantic outburst
And barely considered decision,
But these jumped-to judgements
Reveal the concealed wishes
Of limp and weak-willed men
That would otherwise remain hidden
In the harsh mists of silence
Never to be seen again.
