OctPoWriMo, Day 20 (Poem 19)

ReclaimingNot in the head space to play around with this too much, but hoo boy, the palindrome poems are tough buggers.  Here’s one for Day 19, when it was a suggested form.


Fairness in life —
Is that unattainable?
Freedom inalienable,
Injustice obsolete:
Only peace.


Peace, only obsolete;
Injustice, inalienable,
Freedom unattainable.

That is life,
in fairness.

This is for OctPoWriMo, 31 poems in (ideally) 31 days.  I’m behind, but I’m writing!  You should too, if the inspiration moves you.
