Poetry: Dig In by Alex Rankin
Your mark is a stain
every reason is treason
But our defences are strengthening
and our heels dig deep like our values and beliefs.
I see your protest and raise you, go all in with my tweets
an eye for an eye, fence post for a fence post
These days I grow razor wire instead of roses
and the walls have ears that know all about your kind.
