Documents of dread

dropped through letterbox today

Bringing allegations

of suspected criminality her way


Disabled, vulnerable

her unfortunate state,  so

entirely unprepared for

this missile on her plate


As words burned into consciousness

and fear began to rise

her body shook, a Tsunami

welled up from her eyes


“Interview under caution”

read the torturous line,

bring advocate, solicitor

but ‘legal aid’ declined


Symptoms of disability

begin to re-appear

IBS and FM flare

as distress follows on from fear


The crime:  some information

not given – a simple errorism

But should this really be excuse

for bureaucratic terrorism
