Rookie - 84 Points (Motown)

Not forgotten

Read all the papers
Tragedy surreal
What was overlooked
Secretly waited until all was still
People sleeping through it
That never again woke
Families hearts broken
Surely still taking it's toll
She was a big kind of girl
I watched her as she spoke
Recalling those events and how she
Grew up learning that work
But the details were like a script
How many times had they been heard
Did she even care the fight it took
For 89 years endured?
Maybe just being judge mental
In defense of my dear friend
To work so hard for another tomorrow
That in this life won't come again
Of all the people on the job
Why did she feel compelled to tell me
Never let on anything I knew
As she went on incessantly
Bottom line this was a bomb
That left a crater in his chest
No chances left to meet that soul;
Beautiful, by what I know
About her son who will never forget

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea,
Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes;
