It makes me cross

It makes me cross
when decisions are made for me,
not by me,
by the faceless.

It makes me cross
when the infirm are discriminated against
by those without understanding.

It makes me cross
when justice is ruled by bank balance
or education .

It makes me cross
when security is compromised
by assumption
and my peace ignored.

It makes me cross
when my community is overruled
by bureaucracy
and those with privileges they won’t share.

It makes me cross
when access to health
is restricted by postcode.

It makes me cross
when my small voice
is ignored by the loud hailers.

But I have a small voice
and it makes me X.
