We Can Build


We can build a nonsensical man
So that ideas become a reduction,
The increase in sin is expertly done,
The symbols of a whitewall are absolute.
We can sell a dozen dreams to lords
Overpowering us in ways too definite.

I want to know when the ideas are innocent,
Like the sowing of seeds and laughing of animals.
The cacophony of monkeys dominates the scene,
A police man has appeared to be my side.
The monkeys are apes of criminal sort,
Little have they known and believed.

The build of a man exercises him,
A crime has elated the women,
But men seem to differ and resolve
Important distinctions by themselves.
Women have been builders of atoms
And men are like apes of the buildings.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
