it never bothered me

until the barbarians within us

finally spilled

looked to let go

and refused as I had done times

before to deny my citizenship

and call for the blood

of everyone like me

who had a cutting word

for our folly and our barker god

and saw I and we were doing nothing

nor did it diminish us in their our own eyes

to be angry and to ignore our place

barbarians each and all in relief to savage
