A poem for Karla's Poet's Greatest Fear Challenge

I am a poet and so are you,
we write what we believe is true ,
but what if eloquence were deemed a joke,
that words mean things a vicious hoax?

Nicely done, Nordette. I am not much of a "writer" right now. I guess my energies are elsewhere. I love the way you did this. Love and peace. Regis
