Still


Silence golden like the sun
Liberty stolen
Planet won
Peace given chance
Sudden change in circumstance

Virtual lives on device
We batten down
Quiet as mice
Hanging on
The daily news
Playing statues

In recluse

Fears behind gags
Angels in plastic bags
Dance on thin ice
Past checkout's price

Applause rings out

Once a week
Fighting fires
Beyond the peak
Armour's shield
To havoc's wreak

Their value placed
Beyond unique

To be reflective
With new perspective
Our time will come
To bang the drum

Our evolutionary cocoon
Butterflies from our rooms
