The Last Word

poets writers journalists

standing back

pens poised

prophesy awaits



philosophize with your pens

write it all

unabashed

always the last word



the might of graphite

bleeding gray

stronger than steel

but oh so fragile



poets down there

write nothing at all

just stand backs to the wall

waiting for words to tumble



pens and swords

a clash of unequal minds

both carry lead

of a different weight

although one is ….

eternal
