It could have been all so different:
a new colour on women's radar,
a map of areas on alert.
We both serve the same country,
beautifully tailored but remarkably subdued,
one that is still in need of repair.
We serve alongside a sea of dark suits
who govern in good faith and good will.
It could have been all so different.
