Utterances

suppose you were to 
abandon us here without
your final orders

secrets germinate
alone and fade one by one
yet blossom when shared

set a course without
agreement from the crew and
you might not arrive

stopping despots from
arising comes from speaking
your truths to power

seeing someone wronged
and staying silent is to
yield ground to evil

speak your mind or hear
another voice emerge from
your own silent lips

surprise the world with
a word collection never
yet put together

suddenly brave I
ask her out and praying for
yes prepare for nowt

every morning round the cooler -
nothing could prevent their ardour
day by day becoming stronger -  
each forgetting non-frat rules, er, 
resignation was in order
