Who Cares About Poets

Who cares about poets? Even when they turn difficulty into design Making worlds with words Shaping destinies with clauses Taming language with pauses Moulding life with form Who cares about us? Who cares about poets? Even when they turn ugly into beauty Defining ashes like they do gold Unveiling darkness like they do light Exposing hatred like they do love Cutting through grief like they do joy Who cares about us? Who cares about poets? Even when they tone out silence into reasonable sound Bringing the rumble of oceans on paper Enterpreting sounds of flowers and thirtles Making mountains laugh and rivers weep Shuttinng mouths of lions and making ants wail Who cares about us? Who cares about poets? Even when they reveal bleeding hearts without surgery Fighting wars without guns Conquering territories without armies Ruling empires without thrones Changing the world with only ink Who cares about us? Maybe Poetry Soup does!
