blind 

deep inside 
the mirror behind 
the future a wall 
blank 

white 
tall.

You, morons with wood brain!

Sawdust your heads contain!

Listen to me, you fools!

Lift your asses from the stools!

Go! Toddle or hobble to do good deeds!

Grow fruitful seeds!

Moderate your own greed!

Find out what people need!

What are you afraid to say?

I've been asked, by people following my blog, to include the poems I read on my recent poetry tour, so I'm putting them on here, then will be providing links back here from the blog. Hence...

 

What are you afraid to say?

 

You stand and ask what I’m afraid to say?

I’m afraid to say lots of things:

afraid to say no, to say stop, to say sorry;

afraid to say I’m wrong.
