Confronted with injustice, I unleash
some tightly reasoned, strongly worded letter,

and know you dreadnought athletes of the Cause,
were higher, faster, stronger, braver,
better.

  1. Great poem, Gwen - you manage to use the minimum of words in a very powerful way. I am always in awe of poets when I see such work.
