Tag Archives: Free verse


19 Aug


I rose this morning

to the chirping of birds

they came with message

both squawking and stirred

my eyes gazed sheepishly down at the note

and dare read these words and I quote

so everyone’s a poet now?”

I simply furrowed my brow….

Should we all persecute, rape & throw spears?

Should we lay cunning under claim of our peers?

Should we throw blame to and fro?

Should we poke fun at every Van Gogh?

Art, alas is not our savior

Nor can it purify those who kill

But if everyone was a poet

It surely would pacify foul will
