Poets all

Poets all who read these words

and hear the cry for action,

let your words be more

than words of fine import

or clever twists and turns.


But be instead like William Blake,

the bringer of sharp challenge,

and be fine spectacles of clarity to

those who see the world blurred

by greed, injustice, and ignorance,

or who only see convenient truth

and are blinded by inaction.


Poets all who breathe out hot

the fiery passion of the soul,

direct your fire upon the ones

who divide this world

and forget the least of these

who have no voices

and no words.
