Reprieve

Relax. You’ve got a staying order,
a temporary reprieve.
No decisions being made just yet.
We have no need to execute anything
today.
All positions are perfectly safe for the time being
which is not to say you should get too comfortable.

Who knows where we’ll end up?
Will you stay or will you go?
Who can say? I dunno!
Until someone else tells you so,
keep your hopes up but your head down low.

This is what happens in dangerous times
when the guilty leer at guillotines
hangmen hang by Police HQs
and criminals have cornered just about every market.
It’s where we are:
all near the chopping block
one step away
from some potential end.
