Paper Men To Air Hopes And Fears
The first speaker said
Incinerators, the city dump
The faint scratch of a match.
The second speaker said
Fear drenching rain
Drizzle, oceans, puddles, a damp
Day and the flush toilet.
The third speaker said
And it needn't be
Windows, electric fans.
The fourth speaker said
Fear any sharp
Thing, machine, shears
The fifth speaker said
Hope for the best
A smooth folder in a steel file.
