If All The Words Go Flat

If all the words go flat

Like the knap of a kitten’s back,

Do you ruffle the page

to show your waves of rage?

Do you Rally your courage

Trying not to discourage?

Do you rabble up the rouse

To insult someone’s spouse?

Do you plant more pain

Or figure out a way to explain?

Maybe you shall refrain

From emotional explosion,

I will try to remain

in a position

Where I am nowhere

near

artificial fame,

man-made shame,

Luxurious repasts,

Hatred blasts,

Big bigotry,

Polluted factory….

I will lean back,

Take a deep breath,

*****
