‘Seconds Away’…


Language is often wiser than both,

it’s vulgar and noble would-be users.


The Greek prefix ‘dys’ as in dysfunctional or dystopian,

and the Latin prefix ‘dis’ as in dishonest and dishonourable

both derive from ‘duo’.


To be dubious about something, or to doubt, is to be ‘double-minded’

and to be ‘two-faced’ is to be disingenuous.

‘Two-timers’ are universally held to be treacherous.


Our language reinforces the claims of the mystics,

that division is bad.


What chance then for the divided soul?
