I’ve always been one for slamming doors-
make it loud so they know
I’m not opening it again,
seal it with tar round the edges.
I’ve always heard much opposition-
they say it would be wise to
leave it open a crack just in case,
they say it’s unjust not to
give future peace a chance.
But funny, I’ve never heard anything
but peaceful silence from the other side
of a firmly closed door.
