A Change of Focus
They were being herded now
bleating pleas
like the blind sheep
of past times.
Herded
by those they’d lionised

and all it took was a change
of focus.
Triffids in khaki
poking
and prodding.
They could see them now
in focus
as they stumbled
supported
squatted

bleating
their pleas
to the deafened.
They could see now

their old blind sheep
selves
all it took was a change of focus
and in a flash
they’re
blinded
by the light.
