A steady breeze guided them along

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “If They Should Come for Us” by Fatimah Asghar: street, dandelion, compass, glass, sari, bakery, subway, smashing, dangling, whiskey, made, lantern

A steady breeze guided them along
They don’t need a compass as they travel
On the street and on the subway all yearlong

Dandelion on the field like singsong
Fast smashing cars, they need to be careful
A steady breeze guided them along

Lantern on the way as they made headlong
Went to a bakery and stayed on the aisle
On the street and on the subway all yearlong

A man with his glass of whisky that was wrong
Women in colourful sari as they amble
A steady breeze guided them along

Dogs on the street dangling their tails along
Not smooth sailing they have to go through the hurdle
On the street and on the subway all yearlong

Gong through life as long as they belong
A good sense of humour in their struggle
A steady breeze guided them along
On the street and on the subway all yearlong*
