Elegy – 5

 

waited

right from the outset

ingesting all signals

subtle but intense

 

had the courage to cite

a woman’s invite to unite

an elite member of times long past

from the Empire of the Ottomans, at last

 

yet, the choice, firm, had been made

with not one miniscule hope left

 

waited

right from the outset

this time, it is the end

must stop waiting to any further extent

for tomorrow’s ills are still to be met
