Communication Gonorrhoea

Think about your neighbour
Who lives along the street.
Can you call him by his name
Or should you be ashamed
That you have no idea.
Communication gonorrhoea:
A 21st century plague on humanity,
A new-age profanity, a silent sin.
In the tube or on the bus,
It’s them and us; we demur
From public speaking,
Conceding defeat, not trying –
Shielding personality behind impassivity.
People today are ungenerous,
Jealous of privacy we build walls,
When we should just smile and speak,
Turn the other cheek.

Inspired by Marilyn Monroe – “Only parts of us will ever
touch only parts of others …”
