"Serious" poets always come up with "serious" poems that show just how deep their thinking can be. As you will see by my attempt at seriousfulness (new word I just came up with), as you will see, I'm not much deeper than a deep pan pizza.
By Tracy Farr
People are starving
while others are carving
their Thanksgiving turkey or holiday ham.
People are dying
while others are crying
'bout missing the biggest tax sale in the land.
People are hurting
while others are blurting
out promises, promises, they'll never keep.
People are lonely
while others are only
just bored 'cause there's nothing to watch on TV.
millions of people,
watching and waiting to see a new day.
billions of people,
living their lives come what may.
