Poetry In Today’s World ~ A Poem By Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

The news every day is filled with despair
The scandals in Virginia involving the Governor
The Lt. Governor and The Attorney General
The revolving door for White House Aides
Border security, MAGA, Humanitarian crisis
President’s advisers, attorneys and colleagues indicted
United States pulling out of nuclear treaty with Russia
A country divided… Fake news
Despair… on and on and on
My escape?
Poetry. Reading it. Writing it.
Poetry filled with hope
Writings from the heart
Love for one another
Like Calgon
The beauty of poetry takes you away
It gives you strength and hope
It provides respite
From the constant machine gun attack
Of despair
Let poetry change your world


Perhaps the poet Langston Hughes said it best
โ€œLet America be America again.
Let it be the dream it used to be.โ€
