You Didn’t Pull the Trigger, but You Did



(Christchurch, New Zealand)



You didn’t pull the trigger, but you did


I don’t want immigrants

or those of a different race or creed


I didn’t pull the trigger, but you did


the drip drip of my poison pen and lips

rips a storm of hatred in you




You didn’t pull the trigger, but you did


Each word, becomes a vile post

Each gesture, someone is pushed against a wall

Each speech a rallying cry to do more and more


You didn’t pull the trigger

But your words did

David R Mellor

Born 1964, (Liverpool, England) difficult birth, didn’t find my voice until my youth. Years of thinking I was nobody and treated as such. However, hit the paper papering over the scars. Found understanding and belief through words. I have been published and performed widely from the BBC, The Tate, galleries and pubs and everything in between.

My poems are autobiographical, others topical and several my take on life. Hope you enjoy reading as much as I have enjoyed writing. Please feel free to share your thoughts on links below.
