‘Our Plight’ and other poems by A Whittenberg

By: A Whittenberg

Our Plight

In some countries,
Poets are persecuted: jailed,
Beaten, even hung
In America, they have it harder
Here, we ignore them.

###

So They Say…

We’re all in this together
since
we’re all in this together
until
we’re all not in this together
because after
we’re not in this together…
we will surely
fall

                         apart.

###

Community…

Concerned, because we don’t have immunity
Open: our minds to science and rhymes
Mournful of the murdered but
Mindful of the murderers
United
No /not yet/ not all the way (like always)
I feel
Tomorrow — probably won’t be different
Y? I don’t know.
