Just enough

Just enough to say
‘We tried’
Just enough to say
‘We care’
Just enough that no one will
speak out against for fear
of losing what little is given
with vice-gripped
suspicious sneer

Congratulate yourself and
your ministry of lies
As the silent forgotten ones
lose themselves in pieces
Count the creases
round mouths and eyes
And make sure you buy
your tickets to downtrodden’s
protracted demise

Just enough to say
‘We tried’
Just enough to say
‘We care’
Just enough that no one will
point the blame in here
when first with voices,
then bodies, minds,
the undesirables
disappear
