Never To Rest - Poem by Kurt Philip Behm

I'm a Poet….
don't try to trap me with words
or with logic you don't understand

With your barrister's training
you're out of your league
this arena beyond your command

In some ways
I've already said it all
but never in the form you approve

Or with comforting platitudes
lining your shell
as pontification behooves

The slick easy answers
unfit for a Sage
but the pundit and liars attest

My message as spoken
comes at great cost
—your conscience never to rest

(Villanova Pennsylvania: March,2018)
