Lament of the Children's Poet Laureatebygreenmountaineer©
So why do I write mostly lines
For two to four year olds to hear?
Because they love the sound of rhymes
That never mind but please the ear.
Adults? Well, that depends on the kind
Of adult for whom I am writing.
Sometimes I'll tack on a syllable
For those who would pawn possessions
That they may bring gifts to their children,
Go to church or temple or don't,
But give of themselves every day,
Knowing the true purpose of worship,
And I write for my father and mother
Whose bodies once were put in an oven
By those who one day would discover
They had been putting their own souls in.
