Will it be you?

Thirty thousand is the price to pay

Lives worth less than money

Less than “freedom”

Less than convenience

But who will they be?

Will it be me

Will it be you

Will it be someone we love

Will it be someone unknown whose loss precludes a life bringing change and wonder

Are our lives less valued than a pint and a picnic?

Will it be you?
