Defiance and resistance writ large,
Disbelief at the state of a nation –
Emotions simmering, frustration.
Experience-etched lines, penetrating gaze,
Marching for democracy and better days.
Marshalled and kettled; opposition,
Opportunity for confrontation/negotiation;
Officer of law, visored, helmeted, tooled up;
Shock of uprising arrested – half-cock,
Shock of gazing down barrel of a Glock.
