Tribute to World Poetry Day

In our 24/7 world getting smaller each day
When pressing issues and problems hold sway
There never is enough time to slow down and smell a rose
Too bad we don’t rule in poetry and campaign in prose
Poetry energizes the soul
Moves the masses to achieve worthy goals
Put to music in patriotic songs
We are soon marching to right the world’s wrongs
Tears flow, hearts warmed and laughter summoned by the muse
Needed emotions in bureaucratic prose too easy to lose
On World Poetry Day put the prose away
Let poetry your troubles or boredom allay
