In these last days
poets are like creatures raised
who rail
against stupidity
against inhumanity
and against death and destruction we try to make sense of it all
they also serenade us
with love and laughter
tempt us
with mystery and intrigue
and help us
keep hope from circling the drain

……in these last days
