Now we are scared
Now we are scared
I get to hear
the cattle-truck emptied
of all humanity

we are almost there
Wellington the last stop
an incident-free ride it was
in the country-beloved

where we have
a Ms Universe
a Rugby World Cup
and much more to boot

Now we are scared
2 women and I alone
no security in sight

odd is it not
one needs security
in a democracy
where we all are

the law

It is not 2020 just yet, en route to Wellington am I, 31 December 2019.
