POWER AND POETRY
Power, they say, is for the rich,
Power is the utmost aphrodisiac!
When power fails and corrupts,
Poetry will brighten their future,
And cleanse them from depressed feelings!
Power is for the powerful,
Poetry is for the intellectual,
And the free of spirit!
Power, sometimes, destroys
And causes men to fail!
Poetry limits the human spirit,
And helps them find that divine in all of them!
Power is never the summation,
Of all that is right!
Poetry produces the imagination
In all of them,
And helps them find their true selves!
Power and poetry do go together,
On the opposite ends of the spectrum!
Power, often, is so negative,
Where, poetry, brings out the positive
Feelings in all of them!
