Lesson (dedicated to MarkK - who will understand)

i am a lower case letter -
self-deprecating, minimizing,
trying to be unnoticed,
uncertain that there is a right
to be seen or heard.

sometimes that 1st person (pronoun)
disappears altogether
and there is no subject to the predicate;
it is assumed or lapses into passive voice,
an error forbidden to students.

and possessive pronouns
have also been censured and censored,
one can only guess what belongs to whom.
But 2nd and 3rd persons are fine.
YOU & THEY get all the action and possessions

How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....
Habakkuk 1:2-3
