broken

There is a chain that is unbroken

That we struggle, all of us, to break

The links are thick and solid

Our only tool – the word

They tell us that the word

Is mightier than the sword

And I guess if we chip long enough

A divot is all it may take

A weakness in the chain

That we can exploit with words

But most it seems quite hopeless

A daunting task at best

At worst the task Mt Everest,

K2 and a covid

And then a ray of sunshine

Lights up that long ago dent

And a chain is shattered

Poverty is won against.
