Poet's Prayer

Folder: 
Vintage Words
  • .
  • We meander through words
  • and define that which did not
  • exist before we began our
  • nonsense.
  • .
  • Still, there is some good 
  • in this rubbish we make 
  • as we sharpen our quills
  • and stack our papers neatly.
  • .
  • Let us help those in need
  • as we are allowed or are able,
  • give us courage and strength
  • to get up and walk across
  • the room.
  • .
  • Grant us a painless death
  • and, as we ascend, we will praise
  • the gods and goddesses who
  • have been believed in by billions
  • over long and intentionally
  • dramatic lifetimes.
