Public Domain


A poem was supposed to

be in the public domain

but the domain

did not want it and refused it

out of hand

even other poems

refused to have

anything to do with it

it was ostracized

could not even make a

an anthology

so the poem sat forlorn

on a shelf in the corner

and never got married

or had children

just a hermit poem

with no human contact

like so many poems

words that never made contact

and sadly

never got read.

You've started off a chain reaction
Some poems feeling sad
Why you ask would that be so?
They have no readings had ?
