Poetry Day

I shall not write any verse
no rhymes to praise the day
for this world and we are cursed
and what is left to say
as fine words bring no peace
nor feed the hungered cold
deliver the bound to their release
or balm the crippled soul
for words at best are quiet things
to make of two minds one
but at their worst they burn and sting
and all their worth is gone.
