Intent – Ch#35 (Just one thing)

Whatever you do, do it with firm intent,

Not with abuse, nor rants, nor indignant shouts;

A whisper can reach more, with your argument,

The wrongful detention – no trial; no doubts.

Keep committed resolve, against the affray,

To fight injustice, at Guantanamo Bay,

Uncovering torture, assaults, violence,

While the kangaroo court proceeds, in silence.

(Rispetto)

Over the 62 days, in July and August, my challenge is to share the learning from each of the 62 chapters; hopefully in a poem, but who knows?  Follow my progress with the #JustOneThing Tag

Happy to explore what you make of the post in the comments below? 🙂

Delighted to be able to link this post to MMA Storytime’s Rispetto Poetry Prompt Challenge #10 Violence
