Ceasefire

by Elaine Whybro

Do you cease
or do you fire?
Which is it to be?
Do you pull the trigger
or do you set them free?

Do we wait
or do we judge?
Which is it to be?
Do we have the knowledge
of a brutal history?

Does it end
or carry on
for all eternity?
Do you cease or do you fire?
Which is it to be?
