Cynicism Is An Art - Poem by Bobby Crawford

Come you little children- people
Children-people of the future
For soon you will be people-people
What sort of people-people will you be?
It doesn't really matter, really, because
Soon you won't be people-people
Soon you will be dead-people
Dead-people of so long ago
What sort of dead-people will you be?

    Liked the playfulness amid the brief contemplation; the repeat works well here...the last line really is a satisfying pay-off. (Report) Reply
