A Sight to Remember

Through the open window,
She saw the shepherd boy
Honouring his sheep-duty
Herding them to safety

***

Through the open window,
She saw the clergyman
Off to church with pride
With purpose in every stride

***

Through the open window,
She saw husbands chatter
Bidding their daily farewell
To wives who’d await arrival

***

Through the open window,
She saw smiling kids
Wandering off to school
Moaning it’s not so cool

***

Within the open window,
She saw her reflection
Chained to prison walls
Awaiting her final calls.
