as for the why…

as for the why

we’re digging
at the foot
of sand dunes
spades of words
in hand
hoping
to reach the core
of human thought
to foster some caring
for those left outside
of social circles
to fend
for themselves
without
any means
to do so
we poets
stand on those
proverbial
shifting sands
watching the holes
fill in again
and again
with meaningless rhetoric
from those
who line
the corridors
of ignorance
so
we
continue
to clear away
their verbal debris
standing
i believe
where others
have stood
