RDW's poems

4- Sectioned

He comes before us on three separate counts:
the Peace Bond that the court set yesterday;
and then last night the murder in the streets;
and then the matter of his fiancée.

He’s clearly failing in community care.
He falls in love with someone every hour –
first Rosaline, and now this Juliet;
He’s as unstable as he’s immature.

He cannot be allowed to breach the peace.
Invoke the Mental Health Act, for God’s sake.
Society is threatened by this boy.
Verona’s women’s virtue is at stake.

Do not forget his words before this bench:
“I guess that I just fight and fuck too much.”
