Hold On


Closer to the nub of it, if ‘it’ is what we’ve dubbed 
the source of this pusillanimous contention, what 
in the wash it actually was is lost in a controversy 
unable to stand-off its ‘origins’ of palaeolithic self-
centredness; ‘I’ becomes ‘we’ while their scenery 
revolves around dissent for and against who’s in 
the only chair of supposed reasoning that ‘its’ an 
adjunct of ‘me’ & which naturally means ‘us’ - 

You facetiously declare hold on, you swing on a 
limb with simian-like anthropological flair, it isn’t 
a subject where what you think matters more or 
whatever seems more real to you is the lore we 
need to abide by - ‘it’ is uncontroversially not, & 
wasn’t ever, the lottery you’ve almost contrived
