We Need More Poets in this World!

The world needs more poets and
fewer criminals, lawyers, politicians,
and would be critics.

Poetry soothes the soul,
and steals no one’s gold.

Poetry is honest and cost
a lot less than attorney’s
fees at best.

Poetry doesn’t deny
or lie, and requires no
pledges or donations
to get by.

Poetry doesn’t instruct, criticize,
or tell you how or what you should be.

Poetry is music, word paintings,
and the inner-sanctum for our souls, you see.

Anyone can be a criminal, lawyer, politician,
or critic, but it takes a poet to write a
poem about the beauty of a tree.
