Concord

’twas due decided 

though no vote was cast 

’twas agreed 

concord emphatic 

rules bent and broken 

’twas signed in silence 

pact decreed 

***

’twas undisputed 

whilst no lots were drawn 

’twas that hour 

’twas polled on hindsight 

with none attending 

consensus called for 

to empow’r 

***

’twas given, taken 

rued opposition 

to result 

’twas never, always 

’twas ever after  

’twas only option 

by default 

***
