100-Word Fiction: ‘We Will/Not’

We will prevail
We will not back down
We will be judged
We will not judge
We will be hated
We will not hate
We will tolerate
We will not be tolerated
We will watch as others take up arms
We will not lift a finger
We will love others
While others will not love us
We will sympathise
We will never be afforded sympathy
We will have lies told about us
We will not tell lies
We will respect
We will not be respected
Will we march?
We shall not march
Will we meet?
We shall never, never meet
