Politely Ignored Sensitive Issues - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

topics dangerous not boring
topics taboo change with time
topics modern 9/11 heated

topics old simmer fade off agenda
or erupt renew in hybrid forms
opinions are often cheque banked on

thus once also was the issue of slavery
some gained wealth through the chains
brutality inflicted upon unfortunate others

most politely ignored a sensitive issue
safety sitting upon their neutral fence
while a few enlightened minds risked

all in dreams of freedom
believing slavery to be wrong
prepared to pay freedom

financial blood or life cost.

The issues change faces
the risks still impale
victim sacrificed flesh.

Such is life
gross indifferent preach
without empathy

while sitting upon
neutrality fence
without a care.
