Curious?

“Furious will fade away. Curious will stick in us all…”

Curious?
Furious!
Fury ran amok.
Sure he was
cool to us
but
that was before he sold our idea to the smart, the smooth brigade.
Curious?
I bet he was
to see how much they’d pay
for our work
our dear idea
ours
that we’d nurtured and developed and argued over and listened to each other about and accepted little tweaks that grated
substitutions I had hated
yet let ride
in the interests of
all of us
making it
making it together.
Hideous
tricking us
scooping up the prize
in his name
his the fame
ours
the churning sickness of the tricked by random flicks of smarting kicks from realised deception.
So yes we were
furious.
Furious will fade away.
Curious
will stick in us
all because
we’re curious
to know why.
