2022 Creativity Project – March 18

Who Wins

When nation defies nation
And worlds are run about
With grain rotting in fields
And children foregoing classes
Does anyone grow richer?
I doubt it, for loss somewhere
Is everywhere some brand trial
Making one orphan, another widow
Splitting hairs does not rid
Anyone hours tossing on pillows.
