The Poem

presses smitten
spirits broken
shortwaves jammed
dissenters blamed and jailed
world in a shame
nobles going insane
its l
raw and dry
to the rescue
retrieved from the blue
l laugh at this zoo
called the world
of mortals insecure and cold
l am
the Poem

l imply
and cry
til pens run dry
poets and none alike
test my psyche
l am generous
and handle any fuss
l appease
and please
the kings
in their ditherings
l am
the Poem

l capture emotions
of individuals and nations
am misused and abused
hailed and booed
l am adaptive
ask the captive
l dine with despotic beings
l roll in verse streams
filling writers’ dreams
l am
the poem
l entice your fertile imagination
uprisings are when l spare an intoxication
i possess
and caress
at times l do bless
am whispered at weddings
as they exchange rings
i carry you to the grave
i entertained too many a slave
some hunter splattered me in a cave
the poet is just but a vehicle
l accommodate any syllable
the pen is my benefactor
without it lm delivered by the orator
l am
the poem
