Where is the sense in their oppression?
A despot bent on destruction
would ensure they have no voice.
Victims in their own homes
they fight to survive,
doomed to suffer
as they choose
to be

This nonet is my response to The Secret Keeper’s Weekly Writing Prompt #68, with the prompt words sense, fight, free, voice & choose.
Nonet ~ a poem of nine lines and a syllable pattern of 9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1, with rhyme optional
