Best Poem of Laurence Overmire

And God Made A Poet

There need to be people
toiling on this Earth
for whom money
is not the Bottom Line

those who see
beyond the moment
the temporal frame of inhuman
nature

to lead with voice of spirit
and marked uncommon sense.


(Previously published in Some Words: A Place For Poetry, Aug.2004)

Read the full of And God Made A Poet

Sink Hole

He made the mistake of standing on top of the television set.
He thought maybe he could conquer it, I guess
But instead

It swallowed him up and burped him out into an

Infomercial.
And if we don’t pay $149.95 in six easy installments
We’ll probably never see him again.
