Poem - Without Consent

The poem “Without Consent” was inspired by the disconnect of what words mean when diametric groups utter the same syllables.


Without Consent

Words are shared without consent
for definitions truly meant
even while both may match
in heated discord of the chat

the stories spun from whole cloth
are repeated by both accounts
don’t compare the tainted fruit
as definitions seem resolute

with sibling good on one side
the other embodies evil’s child
these spawn by missives’ plea
spectrum cast by beliefs’ creed

turn the mirror and you’ll see
letters describe this symmetry
don’t demand joint sanity
when hatred follows verbosity.
