Right of Inaction
(6/6/2021)


Brother Bollocks
doesn’t understand
why others believe
each question
deserves
an answer

each challenge
a response

each post
a reply

each push
a push back

there are
no universal constants
violated

no laws
of thermodynamics
broken

if the
provoked
remains
silent

or simply
walks
away

Brother Bollocks
accepts
their calls
of cowardice

their pronouncements
of weakness

as the bitter
rancor
of the self
entitled

the deranged
acrimony
of unfulfilled
grandiosity

they have
no power
over him

they have
no power
by their
nature

God
leads us all
to unresponsive
graves
