Stock - Poem by T (no first name) Wignesan

Stock

Lines derail trains made from stern stock
shunting worsted words in wagons to and fro
cabins depleted by looters piled on dock
signals distressed faces not any more

forefathers shape not their twisted progeny
when foremothers shunt them out of agony

the fear that might in the grain burst bunds
resides unformed in unwilling face
the dark inscrutable face of race
blood thinning through bastardized sons

forefathers shape not their twisted progeny
when foremothers shunt them out of agony

to guard the rhyme within the quatrain
no end of artifice will make for sacrifice
content lets form intertwine lines in vain
clickety-clack of the train lulls us nice

foremothers never think of their progeny
when forefathers shunt them out of agony
