Victim

If she went in with her eyes
closed tight
is she a genuine
victim of the system?

‘What could I do?
You’re on your own.
You hoe your row.
They’d never say the first hello.
I’d be put away.’
Is she in a no-win situation?

Transparently
a victim.
Incoherently a victim.
Passively, decisively
with duty shining in her eyes.
‘I didn’t know.
I had no choice.
No-one listened to me.’

She ties the rope
she lays the bait.
She gives up hope.
She lies in wait
to become the victim.
