Protest

There are things going on in the world

that threaten the end of Poetry

 

and don’t think that Poetry is going

to accept this without a fight.  No man

 

Poetry is going to give it to them

straight from the hip

 

Poetry is going to put out a call

to all peace lovers to raise their voices

 

Express their indignation, hold readings

in every city, put out a call

 

To arms – appalled at the world’s

brazen massacre of its beloved peaceful

 

Stanzas – Poetry declares a National Day

of Protest – next week across the country

 

In every damn place where outraged activists

hang out, come one, come all, raise

 

Your Voices in Protest before it’s too late

Next Week in your local town hall, raise

 

Voices, raise arms.  Pizza, beer, extra copies

of the Anthology, felt pens

 

Placard cardboard, water bombs and ammunition

for hand arms available at the door
