Poetry, For Poetry

What good is one poem?

In the face of life

What good is a poem

 

When all those words

Were wiped away

In the fire

 

What good is one poem

To the girl with the razor

And noose

 

What good is a poem

To the man with the pills

And booze

 

What is one poem worth

In the face of it all

 

Nothing…

… nothing at all
