Walk Towards the Whisper by RG Thomas

Spin is a whisper,
a quiet collusion
dressed up as fact, 
paraded as truth.

Bias murmurs
about the way
you look or walk
or think or talk.

Prejudice shouts,
behind your back,
in your face,
inside your head.

Tyranny is dumb.
No need to speak
to the disregarded
and dispossessed.

Freedom is a cry
from the streets
by those who failed
to walk towards
the whisper.

About The Author

Took a detour some time ago and ended up in science and technology trying to codify life. Now
seeking rehabilitation through poetry. Reading has turned to writing and although there is a long
way to go, hope springs.

Bandit Fiction is an entirely not-for-profit organisation ran by passionate volunteers. We do our best to keep costs low, but we rely on the support of our readers and followers to be able to do what we do. The best way to support us is by purchasing one of our back issues. All issues are ‘pay what you want’, and all money goes directly towards paying operational costs.
