Scream A Little Bit

It’s poetry,
the shortest distance between
emotions and truth.
It screams, it whispers,
it packs a lunch
when no one else thinks
about nutrition.
Poetry
recognizes hypocrisy
and waits out
the hunger strike,
protesting the banality of
corporate catch phrases and
the mayhem of marketing.
A poem
will not be ignored.
It is patient, does not need
to be justified, wears no
best-before date, and
is always there for you.
