Sadly

Sadly


truth has
wet the bed
the world over


the church
the president
his staff


if these
can't hold
what vessel can


what wafer
what wine
not poisoned


can we
feed drink
for nourishment


not hate
war terror
flaming cities


perhaps in space
and wonderment
of chaotic nature


open minds
wide open hearts
will see


wholesome morsels
to nourish ourselves
our children.

"Sadly" says it in full and pays its poetic-social dues.


Healthy Day, Poet!
