Ruth

For me you were the warrior
Who waded in and listened
Calmly scribing meticulously
Respectful through and through
Easy to pick up on soul and ethic
In your being
Positive and fitting
In what was for us
All seeing

Up against the giant
The anything but illustrious
The one and only Borough Coucil
And 8 long years of Hell
Welcoming and hospitable
With a kindliness apparent
Really solid data
For your clarity we fell

Humanity finds residence
And Ruth you were so
mindful
Of all that we had gone through
Which you Measured and we knew
Confidence was possible
Though the tunnel filled with darkness
Seemed longer than when we sat down
But despite that we felt you

Brought so much to the table
With your confirmatory e mail
And really what was genuineness
And thoughtfulness and care
All the qualities tragically
That The council had inflicted on us
You brought light where there was darkness
And made us more aware
