Blackmailed.

 

Blackmailed;

do this or I will...

don’t do this and I will...

Pulling strings,

tugging wires,

barbed around my neck.

What’s the point?

Can’t escape;

better to capitulate

than have those strings,

those wires

pulled ever tighter.

My scissors are blunt,

without strings

I’d just fall,

so better to simply

obey the call.

They say it’s my fault,

that I should be strong

but I do it for others

but still it’s all wrong.

Do this or I’ll....

Don’t do this and I’ll....

Blackmailed

with a noose of barbed wire.
