Why, Then? - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Thank you Adrienne,
it was nice to see the 'one'.
All of us, at one time
or another,
will be cowards.
people of no significance.
And no one seems to
no one will be able
to hide.

    No, I won't be going to the forum to play at this time. The children are loose again, all beating up on Nikhil.
    My aunt Hulda always told me not to go out and play if the bad boys were there.
