Lesson Learned

by Chris Sorrenti


Didn’t they ever tell you

You shouldn’t put Poetry

In places it should never be

Not everyone respects

Let alone understands

The beauty of a few simple words

Not everyone is devoted as you are

To the artistic cause

That they’ll take your words

Turn them against you

And probably when you least expect it


If you want to rock the boat

Then go all the way next time

Plant your seeds

In the soil of the World

Let them multiply and divide

Like atoms splitting

In the heat of nuclear reaction

And never forget

A high school locker

Only leads to a dead end


...Or does it?
