Poets Won’t Change the World



Poets record things as they happen

Poets record things that they see

Whether it’s good/bad doesn’t matter

Poets record history


Some say that poets are torches

To help change begin to unfurl

But I take the opposite perspective

That poets will not change the world


To me, it needs a mass people movement led by a strong leader forcing politicians to bend to the wishes of the people.
A renewal of Martin Luther King times.
